salmuera >> latin american restaurants in amsterdam >>
It’s not only the beautiful courtyard that we love at Salmuera. Also the way they cook is finger licking good. They serve the traditional Argentinian cuisine in a modern wat. That means quesadillas and empanadas, but of course also steaks and ceviches!
Check the pictures of Salmuera here >>
calle ocho >> latin american restaurants in amsterdam >>
Calle Ocho in De Pijp is named after the main street of Little Havana in Miami. The place where immigrants from Cuba, Central- and South America melt together. And Calle Ocho brings all the good from Cuba to Argentina together in one place. With tequilla, ceviche and lots of spicy salsas!

castell >> latin american restaurants in amsterdam >>
At Castell they made an exact copy of an Argentinian ranch. In this bbq restaurabt you eat meat, meat and more meat. But they way as they grill here, you won’t fine anywhere else in Amsterdam. For that reason their spare-ribs are one of the best in town!
