Los Pilones

Lonely Planet review

Set up by a trio of Mexican brothers, Los Pilones sets the standard among Amsterdam's handful of Mexican restaurants. If you're looking for grilled bistek (beefsteak), crispy chicken rolls and fruity mango or lime margaritas in a colourful, social environment, you're definitely in the right place.

A few shots from the 185-plus tequila list, and you'll be feeling brave enough to ask for the extra-hot salsa. There are branches in Nieuwmarkt and Jordaan. Food is served through to closing time.
