My wife and I shared the chef's selection of pintxos and a nice red Spanish wine: all excellent. The staff was very kind, working hard to accommodate all parties whether or not reservations had been made. Great place filled with positive energy!

We stopped off here for a lovely lunch enjoying a wide assortment of tapas. The service was friendly and gracious. They have an excellent selection of wines with sidewalk dining.

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

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.
