I always return first. Great tapas. 3 are a meal since they are larger than most tapas places. Lively fun atmosphere with nice reasonably priced wines. Staff is great. Dank u well Jasper.

My partner is Spanish so we went to this restaurant to have some tapas. Very good, delicate, high-quality tapas! And not too expensive too. Two people, one water, one glass of wine, six tapas, and a dissert, less than 50 euro. Highly recommended!

The restaurant is located in a nice street in the Jordaan, with many restaurants. We took our chances with this one as there was a table free outside and it was a lucky choice. They have a menu, but the better option is to pick...More

Propped ourselves at the bar and sampled the tapas and wine on offer. We were not disappointed. Restaurant is tucked away , but it's def worth coming off the main streets to stop and sit for a while. The relaxed atmosphere will prob mean you...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.
