Cabrón: modern Mexican cuisine in the Pijp area

De Pijp has gained a new restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Recently opened on Albert Cuypstraat is Cabrón, a place where you can go for a modern version of Mexican cuisine, cocktails and special tequilas.


At Cabrón, it's old-fashioned Amsterdam coziness, but with a Mediterranean twist. The Mexican cantina fits well with atmosphere that surrounds the Albert Cuyp.

They serve a combination of authentic Mexican dishes and modern tacos at Cabrón. A few favorites on the menu are the old school Birria (stew), Quesadillas with cherry chipotle sauce & duck confit and Tacos with pulled pork, sweet potato & fresh cheese. They cook with as much sustainable fish and organic meat as possible, and there are plenty of options for vegans as well. Tip: If you're in a hurry or feel like a quick bite, stop by their booth at the market. There they sell delicious tacos and choripans (sandwiches) to go.

Opening hours

Cabrón is open Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 00 a.m.. On Friday and Saturday you can go there from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. and on Sunday from 5 p.m. to midnight.
