Staff was attentive and friendly, food was fresh, and the margarita was awesome! The cook and possible Spanish owner said hello. I would go back if I ever come back to Amsterdam!

The worst place where I ate (so to speak) during my trip. Portions was so poor we thought were only appetizer before dinner. Ridicolous prices for insignificant food!

I mean, what is this place about? Spanish ? Are you sure ? I don't even understand how they can have customers, they are "cooking" with very low quality products , a total waste of my time, the best was the water.

They don't deserve even one star.terrible.it shouldn't be called Spanish restaurant. The "food" is plastic , the chorizo was just bought in the Ah in the corner. You can find much better places with Spanish food in Amsterdam

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the food. We use fresh products and Spanish products imported from Spain (like the chorizo).

There are a lot of tapasbars in Amsterdam and the quality differs a lot. This is a really nice choice. The ambiance is traditional spanish, the owner too, and very friendly. The food is just very good, though I'd say it's not the cheapest tapasbar...More

We stumbled upon this fabulous place and the waitress was very helpful. We neither speak Dutch or Spanish, so didn't have a clue and it was our first night in the city and our first time in Europe. We were lucky she was so helpful...More

Aan het Hugo de Grootplein is een gevel bekleed met glanzende tegeltjes die in een moza��ek de naam van het restaurant laten zien. Mano a Mano is een sfeervolle tapasbar waar je kunt kiezen uit een dertigtal tapas. Met name queso frito, oftewel de gebakken kaas en de pimiento relleno (gevulde paprika) vallen in de smaak. Daarnaast staan er wisselende gerechten op de kaart, zoals zarzuela (Spaanse visschotel) en een dorade van de bakplaat. Met een groot assortiment aan Rioja wijnen beland je al snel in Spaanse sferen.
