¡Vamos! these are the best mexican restaurants in amsterdam!

Mexico, the country of white beaches, spicy tequilas and sombreros. And the homeland of tortillas, enchiladas, nachos and burritos. Yes, we love Mexico! But because it’s a bit far to go there for dinner, we bring Mexico closer to home. In this new list we share our  6 x favourite Mexican restaurants in Amsterdam with you.

Chiapas Taco Cartel Amsterdam

mexico boulevard >> mexican restaurants in amsterdam

On the Rijnstraat you’ll find a new recently opened Mexican oasis: Mexico Boulevard. Where all dishes are prepared according to the Mexican slow food recipe. The result: delicious dishes such as quesadillas with cheese, chorizo, mushrooms and chimichanga and arrachera.
Go to Mexico Boulevard >>


In one of the most buzzing streets of Amsterdam, the Reguliersdwarsstraat, you find Roses Cantina. A restaurant and cocktailbar with Mexican cuisine. Gazpachos, tacos, empanadas, ceviches and steaks, they just got it all. Our favourite? The ceviche acapulco goes tokyo!
Rose’s Cantina is waiting for you >>

salsa shop

The concept of the Salsa Shop is simple: choose the dish (tacos, burrito, salad or burrito bowl), choose chicken, steak, shredded beef, veggies or shredded pork, a homemade salsa (the chipotle is a spicy must try!) and veggies and greens to top it of. Within no time you created a custom Mexican meal! On several locations in town!

miss mexico >> mexican restaurants in amsterdam

Miss Mexico is one of the pop up kind. You’ll find this place in Pand 10, where first the 10.000 beer concept was, followed by the chicken heaven of Chicks & Coqs. And now taken over by Miss Mexico. She serves tacos and tequilla until December 18!

LOS PILONES CANTINA DE MEXICO >> mexican restaurants in amsterdam

With locations in the Leidsebuurt, Jordaan, Nieuwmarkt and Kerkstraat the tacos of Los Pilones are well represented in the city centre of Amsterdam. I found their location in the Jordaan the most cosy one, but their spot on Nieuwmarkt is already known as the taqueria. Anyhow, it doesn’t matter where you go, your loyalty card for margaritas is valid everywhere.


And then there’s this taqueria that has to be included: Chiapas Taco Cartel. On the menu you find delicious tacos, but also other Mexican streetfood like burritos. And make sure you check out that purple wall inside ;-)
