We stumbled upon this place when staying at a friend's flat nearby. We got there quite late on a Friday and it was really busy, but this wasn't a problem - they found us a table and we had the best service. We opted for...More

Great for wine and dinner. Give your trust over the the chefs and waiters/waitresses and you will not be sorry! Was pricey, which was the only downside.

We ended up here because many places were closed on this rainy, cold Sunday. We were glad we did. Good food and good service. Reasonable food and wine. Nice atmosphere. Very friendly wait staff. We ate mostly pinxtos but also off the menu.

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!

Lots of options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Fun casual atmosphere with nice wines by the glass.

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.
