Quite funny. A real Spanish feel in the middle of Amsterdam. As if eating in the harbour of Barcelona. Fish was good, atmosphere great.

Not the best food of the world, but it feels like Spain, right un the center of Amsterdam.
The fish is good. The white table whine could be better.

Really tasty, friendly staff, fresh fresh fish, good varied menu. A little pricy but authentic Spanish food- expect to speak Spanish with the staff! I would return without hesitation

Just getting to Centra is a challenge as it is bang in the middle of the red light district. But once you enter the restaurant you are whisked away to the sunnier climes of southern Spain.

The place hasn't changed in years, the decor is a bit tired and you're packed in canteen style, but the food and service is excellent.

True spanish peasant food is served in huge portions and washed down with excellent and authentic sangria. The waitors are freindly and the place is usually buzzing.

So if you fancy a quiet romatic meal in a nice part of Amsterdam, then don't go here but if you're feeling adventurous, want a truely authentic spanish meal in the dodgiest part of town - this is the place for you.

Went here with some colleagues. Had a great meal and really enjoyed the feel of the place. It's not fancy - at all.
But the foods good and the so is the price. I will come back.
