So happy to have found this place! Really authentic Mexican food and amazing Margaritas!!! Staff were super friendly. Loved the ambience and vibe of the place, really relaxed. Had the crepe in caramel sauce for dessert which was delicious! Will definitely go back!!

I come here mostly for the margaritas, they're great, you get a nice big glass and a small jug! Not that big of a fan of the food, some of the botanas are nice, but I found the enchiladas verdes rather disappointing...

Being lovers of Mexican food we decided to give this restaurant a try. Unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations. Service was very slow and inattentive despite there being only 2 other tables of couples present. We asked for more nachos when ordering our...More

Really good Mexican food,amazing mango margarita. The restaurant was very busy but we still got served in a very reasonable time and the staff were friendly. The only slight problem is it's a tad on the expensive side but still very nice.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Los Pilones was established in 2001 by three Mexican brothers who aimed to bring the REAL taste of Mexico to Holland. Here you will find only traditional Mexican favourites, not burritos or hard shell tacos, just simple Mex-Mex cuisine and a bright and lively atmosphere unmatched anywhere else in Amsterdam.
