Had a very pleasant Mexican meal at La Margarita in a very narrow street between Rokin and Oudezijds Voorburgwal. My companion had an excellent steak, grilled on charcoal with French fries and a salad. While I went the Mexican way with tacos and all the trimmings.Ample portions! Equally well prepared. Great was also the dessert: an alcoholic fried banana with... More

Cozy restaurant in the centre of Amsterdam but thanks to its location in a side street not very visible so not very touristy. Broad selection of Mexican dishes and about five different beers. You need to be lucky though because their beers sell out fast.

I came for dinner with 6 friends visiting me from London. We have been waiting 20 mins to order, half a hour to get drinks and one hour and 20 mins to get terrible, flavourless food after threatening the careless waitress to leave without paying. The service, especially the tall brunette waitress than was supposed to take care of us,... More

I could see how inside might become a little crowed but we loved our table on the balcony and we were able to watch the boats and people go by. One of our... More

The service was very slow, it took a while till we ordered and then it took more than hour till we finally got the food. The tortillas were really not good, kinda soaky, the meat was dry and we did not like much the beans and guacamole either. When we complained, we got the tequilla for free, however for sure... More

I had dinner here with 3 cousins one Friday evening recently. We are all vegetarians, and we were all happy to see that the menu contains a section of vegetarian entrees. The portions were large, and came with rice and beans. I had the vegetarian burrito option. There were three burritos, each with a different filling. The pineapple filling in... More

Food is not good, waiters are rude and they are so slow. 80 mins to serve our group. Definitely not a place to go.

Nice restaurant, very polite and friendly team, good food (non excellent but good quality), I recommend the "nachos todos" personally I didn't like the pollo piccante (everything but spicy). Good tacos California.

First the food. Superb, freshly made, authentic. The staff were very friendly, good fun and happy to help in any way they could - including changing some of the menu items when requested. I was celebrating my 50th birthday, and the staff, I really wish I had taken her name so I could thank her personally here, googled a cocktail... More

Waited over an hour for our meal. When it arrived it was poor. It looked like it had been heated up to within an inch of its life in a microwave. Very poor for the price. I would not recommend. I'm writing this as I sit waiting for a bill I asked for 20 mins ago. Tempted to walk out.

A little background about us....La Margarita, Mexican Cafe Restaurant, by the regulars just called "the Mexicans!" Has been a landmark restaurant for more than thirty years. Full of Mexican warmth, buzzing with a crazy Latin atmosphere, it really is hard to believe you are in the centre of Amsterdam, yet here , you can let your imagination go wild and enjoy many specialties from the Yucatan region of Mexico. Various delicious dishes like Fajita's, Taco, Burrito's, Tournedos Ranchero and Marinated Ninos Eros adorn our menu. Naturally we also serve Mexican beers, Margaritas and other cosmopolitan cocktails to enjoy with these dishes. You can end your dinner with a tasty dessert or, for the true enthusiast, a strong Mexican coffee with Kahlua, Tequila and Cream! But, La Margarita is more than just a restaurant, it's so flexible! Atmospheric enough to provide a perfect cosy dinner for two yet supple enough to cater for weddings, other receptions and groups of 10 or more at a table. A maximum of 98 people can be catered for "a la carte" if you wish, or, you can choose from a selected menu to suit your needs. We also offer a varied monthly menu from just 25,00 Per Person. For people requiring a gluten-free diet, we always have at least ten dishes on the menu that are gluten free. If you fancy a dish on the menu, which is not gluten free, our chef will gladly adjust the ingredients for you. To find us - Our address is Langebrugsteeg 6, between Rokin and Nes.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
