We stumbled on this place while wandering...and glad of it. Although they have an a la carte menu, the main attraction is the Crostini/tapas bar, where you point at what looks good, get an explanation on ingredients (the staff are very fluent in English and...More

My sister works for one of the travel sites based in Amsterdam, and this was one of the spots she recommended. We went to La Oliva on our first night here. I called only a couple of hours ahead and they were able to reserve...More

We have already gone 3 times here, and we are coming back on Saturday. This is definitely one of the best restaurants we know in Netherlands and it´s absolutely Cantabrian and Vasque cuisine.

Had a spanish evening here. Let's of good, shareable plates that enhanced the overall food experience and the creme brule for desert was amazing, enhanced by some special catalan spice. And a nice spanish wine to boot. All was good.

I think the ambient influenced some previous comments, too much 5 vote for my standards. Pintxos are ok, but I don't understand why what you choose is not done at the moment while they serve you pintxos already done and heated? The idea is nice,...More

Really dreadful service here - our waitress was outright rude. Shame as the food was great and prices reasonable.

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.
