If you want to eat Spanish food, this is your place. The cook is so good. Nice atmosphere and staff. When you are there, you must taste the marinated olives, potates with garlic sauce and cheese goat croquettes. Yummy, yummy!!!

The atmosphere is splendid' the dinner was very nice and we enjoyed the fact that we could choose also from each other's choices. Several... More

Really enjoyed the Tapas. A nice break from the heavy Danish food. They have a great salad on the menu. Nice wines too.

We were treated to dinner here with a group of friends. The atmosphere is electric with lots of friendly, noisy chatter amongst the guests - if that sort of atmosphere is not your thing, then don't recommend this place. We shared several different delicious tapas plates and had a second round of the favourites. The food was excellent with a... More

We sat outside in the beautiful backdrop of the cathedral and were served an excellent meal and delicious drinks. Service was efficient and friendly, and the manager also managed to source us a taxi into Amsterdam after lunch, no mean feat given how busy it was in town. I would strongly recommend this as a place to eat or drink... More

The four of us stopped for appetizers and drinks, ended up with enough food for dinner. Excellent food, wonderful mojitos, and great service upstairs from Lily and Mel. Ever the deserts were great, the cheese cake and the creme brûlée.
