Tropico Colombian restaurant Amsterdam
Cartagena Colombia


 Colombia in Amsterdam

Tropico is a Colombian restaurant in Amsterdam that offers traditional Colombian food, Latin snacks, Colombian drinks and a great environment.

Opened in 2012, Tropico quickly became known by the Latin community, Dutch and expat people in town who love the South American vibe, good food and kind service.


Owned by the Colombian family Rodriguez living in Amsterdam, originally from Cali, the Colombian capital of "Salsa" (the dance) and happy people, Tropico is a place that makes you feel in Latin America where the warmth of its people shines through their food and their smile.

At Tropico, food is inspired by traditional Latin flavors which along with the best seasonal and vibrant ingredients transport you to Colombia. A country full hope, traditions and taste that learnt that life is to enjoy next to those you love. Colombian food is joy.






We are currently located in the neighbourhood of Buitenveldert, where we welcome you to discover the Colombian cuisine. Our restaurant, a big space perfect for groups and families, resembles a "Casona Paisa" (similar to a traditional house in Medellin) where our Colombian chefs follow our grandmother's recipes and use the freshets ingredients to create dishes that will give you the real Colombian experience. In summer you are welcome to enjoy from the outdoors sitting area.

Dinning at Tropico is an exploration of taste and tradition. Recipes from different regions of Colombia influenced by indigenous, Spanish and African cusiness will surprise you and delight you.


The most crunchy empanadas, the best Colombian arepas and patacones are ready to be enjoyed together with other snacks, main dishes, asados and desserts. Get to explore the Colombian cuisine in Amsterdam and enjoy your food next to a Colombiana (Colombian soda) or a Club Colombia (Colombian beer). But no worries! if you are not ready just yet to try the full Colombian combo, Heineken and other beers are also in the menu to support you in your food adventure.

Vegetarian options are available and food allergies are of outmost importance to us, you tell us and we accommodate.  Come join us and let us share with you a bit of Tropico.

Cocora Valley, Colombia. Christian Holzi


Located in the Northern part of South America, Colombia is home to mostly adventurous and creative people that have learned to enjoy life regardless the situation. We love our family, our traditions, good food and a party.

Colombia is equal to diversity, not only its landscape is varied but its food and people change very much by region. 


Go explore it and be surprised! When you comeback  we love to hear your stories.
