Stumbled (before we drank their wine haha!) across this wee gem of a place and had the octopus, whitebait, and fried potato’s, washed down with a bottle of house red wine, and have nothing but goodness to report. A nice find. Definitely a worthy stop.

Stopped in to try some small bites. The potato frittes were great but ask to have them cooked longer. They weren’t quite crispy enough. We passed around several items which were all good, but we loved the blue cheese bread. Nice people serving. Wine selection...More

A nice place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Had some tapas, Spanish and a beer. Decent tapas selection. The Spanish potato omelette was very good.

Tiny restaurant with some cramped tables. Great service, food and wine. Tapas portions are on the large side. Quality is great. Well worth a visit

Amazing food with reasonable prices, however very little space. Food was good enough to compensate that.

The tapas catala was fabulous and the service spot on! Really, enjoyed the cozy size and the baby grilled squid was wonderful. The portions are huge and one can truly share. Potatoes and blue cheese bread was excellent. Highly recommended.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
