Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rats in meat! As a neighbour of this tourist trap, I have to warn you. We had a rat plague and they decided to use the rat meat into the tacos. We said: that’s disgusting! But they said; as long as we’ll mingle it with...pork, no one will notice. Omg, I can puke if I think about this conversation. Ask owner Aram or server Martijn about it.More

Hands down best Mexican food place in Amsterdam. I’ve come here many times (5 bookings and some more with no reservations) and it always delivers.

We ordered the three tacos and a naked burrito. The tacos were small, three bites to a taco. We asked for a side of beans. The beans came in a ramekin , had maybe an ounce in it! €4.50! I kid you not. We asked...for additional salsa. They wanted to charge for it! Yeah no thanks. We also ordered 2 margaritas (bottom shelf) and still water. It was €93. This wasn’t a fine dining experience and the quality nor the quantity warranted such an exorbitant amount. We felt robbed.More

We ordered both the 3 Taco meal. We were shocked how little we got. Three small open Taco's, lukewarm, were served with a few pieces chicken on it and some vegetables. The food itself was not bad. For the Guacamole sauce you had to pay...€ 4,50 extra each. These two plates cost us € 75,- total, including 2 drinks, no cocktails. We were still hungry and we had to go to another restaurant afterwards, because we didn't want to stay here any longer then necessary. A total rip off!More

We were a group of five friends. The margaritas were great, the food average, the portions ridiculously small and we are not exactly big eaters. On the pricey end as well. The restroom was dirty and smelly and the whole establishment a bit run-down.

Bang average. The girls in green /hoody (I’m guessing supervisors and/or manager) were rude and not at all welcoming. We arrived at the desk but when no one welcomed us after 3-4 minutes of waiting, we stepped into the restaurant part only to be told...(by a to step back to the front and one of the staff would seat us. I could understand if you were you busy but you weren’t. We were then greeted by someone else in a green shirt who was so unwelcoming and made it seem like we were so lucky that she was able to seat us. If you can’t at least smile at people paying your wages then maybe hospitality isn’t for you. Most miserable sour faced waitress I’ve ever had the pleasure of encountering. The girls in red were friendly and gave proper service. Maybe those in green could learn a few things. Overall food was ok, nothing special. Spend your money elsewhere. Somewhere that you’ll be treated better and not be spoken to like a child. Average restaurant with average staff.More

Positives- - cute vibe, good atmosphere and decor - Communication to change/modify reservation was easy, quick and they were so lovely via email - Jalapeño poppers and pimientos de Padron were yummy Cons - - Tacos tasted quite bad actually and were so cold. I’m...not a fussy eater but they weren’t enjoyable. - Pitcher margarita not worth it, and way too strong (normally wouldn’t complain about that but it didn’t taste good) - It was a birthday meal and we tried to secretly get them to come out with a brownie and candle but they handled it so badly - it took them 30 mins to do anything and after waiting 15mins they asked the birthday girl if she has her ID to prove it was her birthday *eye roll* which she did… we just wanted to leave at that point. We laughed it off, paid up, thanked them and left. But I wouldn’t go back nor would recommend to anyone. - Service wasn’t great and they weren’t very polite and missed things off bill which we had to ask them to help with. They weren’t rude but definitely not very friendly either.More
