Not really vegan-friendly at all

Posted on 06 / 07 / 2013

I love Los Pilones! It's a great bar and a great place to go to for authentic Mexican cuisine (which is so hard to find in Amsterdam!). However, I would never really recommend it to a vegan. Other than their guacamole or their tacos de alambre, or chilaquiles/enchiladas (basically with nothing in them/on top of them) there are no other options. Though I love the place, it is extremely expensive as well! :(

Pros: great location, authentic mexican
Cons: expensive, basically zero vegan options

Not much choice for vegans

Posted on 08 / 08 / 2011

The only vegan meal I could find was the veg tacos without cheese. And it wasn't cheap.
The decor etc. is nice and the service is friendly. I found the food fine but it wouldn't have tasted of much without the chilli sauce from the table. Bit so-so...I'd recommend going if you're in a big group and there's meat eaters with you who want their meat! It's not got a lot of choice.

Pros: nice decor
Cons: not much choice, expensive
