After walking around Amsterdam for days, trying all kinds of restaurants, cafés, bars and not being overly impressed we stumbled over this place on a quiet corner of Lindengracht. Not overcrowded but the food looked alright so we desciced to give it a go. We ordered vegetarian enchiladas. And it was the nicest food we've had eating out in Amsterdam.... More

First time back for a couple of years, but a return visit for a reason. No nonsese, minimal fanfare Mexican cuisine which is possibly the best you'll find in Amsterdam. Okay, a bit of a walk from the usual bilge you find on Dam/etc, but definitely worth it. Majestic mojitos, brilliant burritos and a wonderful, chilled atmosphere - we will... More

This place sells jugs of very well made margaritas by the litre! Need I say more? Oh, the food was really good, I shared the beef burrito with my other half, can't remember what he had (the margs were strong). My friends had fajitas. The staff were friendly and attentive, I would definitely return, I recommend, delicious food and drinks,... More

We had a great meal here, chicken nachos shared between 2 were excellent, arrived very quickly and were delicious. Then had chicken fajitas which were great, really tasty with lots of chicken. The service was very fast and we were finished and out within an hour. Highly recommend it for a great Mexican meal.

We found this place just opposite our airbnb apartment. Turned out it's a really nice Mexican restaurant with great staff, decent prices and excellent food. We went here for beers and nachos the day we arrived and I returned the day after for a really nice work day in the sun and some lunch at their great outdoors serving area.... More

Caramba is a good Mexican restaurant with, for Europe, authentic Mexican food. The staff are nice, the ambiance is really fun. And the food very very tasty. Good chilli sauce too for those who like things hot. The burritos are recommended.

we came without reservation, and it was uncomplicated to get a table although the restaurant was quite full. staff was friendly, relaxed and quick, food was good quality (although it could have been a little spicier for me), price range was medium for the location in the Jordaan. All in all a nice experience on a cold and rainy pentecost... More

Friendly service, public mainly local people, so our hopes were high. But the guacamole is clearly not home made and tasteless, vegetables for the veggie echiladas we're obviously deep frozen, lousy presentation. Greasy, heavy not fresh. Good atmosphere but unfortunately the food wasn't. Will not return.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
