This is a reasonably priced Mexican with good service. It is only small and relies on fast service and quick turnover. The food was adequate and plentiful, but it missed the spices one expects of a Mexican eatery.
However it had good beer and decent chilli sauce to heat up the food.

We stopped off here for a meal after walking past laods of fast food chains and Italian restaurants - it was nice to see something a bit different.
The food was amazing, generous portions too and not over priced.
The staff were friendly and this restaurant is right in the heart of the city!
We also visited for a quick lunch the next day too, which was also brilliant.
If you are looking for somewhere nice to eat, I would definitely recommend this little gem in Amsterdam!
