We stopped into this tapas bar after a canal cruise in the afternoon. I'm sure we were a bit rowdy (lots of day drinking on our cruise) but the owner/manager that was manning the bar was more than hospitable and friendly to us! I was...More

This place served a really large selection of tapas. And they were true tapas - small plates, but could be shared by two if you wanted to try different ones. Really delicious. The staff were ridiculously friendly, but probably because we were a bunch of...More

If you want to eat real Spanish food, you should go here. Everything we ordered tasted great. I don't think that we have ever had better tapas in the Netherlands. Staff is very friendly and attentive.

Dropped in for a late lunch, nice little place with a cool view of the canal and streets. Food was very good, after being in Spain not quite amazing but definitely good quality. Highlight was the ham and tomato mini rolls. Service ok but a...More

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.
