We selected La Oliva from Tripadvisor recommendations after an evening visit to the Anne Frank House, a short walk away. A warm welcome awaited us and the smell as we entered the restaurant held promise of something good to come. It was busy but we...More

This is a little gem in the middle of Amsterdam, the chef is a character, always checking how things are going outside. He is Spanish and he has made sure that the food keeps the soul, but at the same time he has modernized many...More

We've been here a couple of times already, both for lunch -with classic tortillas- and dinner. Friendly and helpful staff, kitchen staff 100% spanish and a quiet atmosphere in a great location. Nice vegetarian choices as well, good value for money.

I wish there was a 3.5 rating option for 'good' - somewhere between 'average' and 'very good' - which would suit our experience at La Oliva. Walking in, the food smelled amazing and there was a good vibe. Our food was quite good, but unfortunately,...More

The food here is delicious and very interestingly presented. It reminds me of Basque cuisine. I like the way the dishes changed over the course of the evening, freshly cooked with new surprises displayed along the counter. The service was efficient and friendly with the...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.
