Have been here with a group of 8 ppl. The food was awful, pretty much just heated up frozen food. Plates were very dirty, haven’t seen this in my entire life... Service was unprofessional and probably stoned, we have been waiting for hours. Restrooms were...More

We ate here on our first night in Amsterdam, tired and hungry and doing no research, which was our first mistake. Our second mistake was being enticed into this restaurant by the man outside touting for business, with the promise of a free drink. It’s...More

My 3rd meal in Leidseplein since arriving in the Netherlands. Chicano’s is a typical tourist restaurant like the rest of them on the street. They don’t really need to serve good food because tourists aren’t often repeat customers. You can get better fries on the...More
