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.

Great food, atmosphere and personnel. Had never been to a tapas type restaurant and the staff was more than helpful in helping us decide what we should order. The food, filet of beef, was excellent and the small plate sides were excellent as well. Reservations...More

Great selection of pixtos and Gin tonics. Don’t get there too late as the pixtos are more fun than the regular menu items.

Small restaurant with a bar area and a room in the back with tables outside. The best tapas are the small meat ones and you can have a really nice meal by combining them. Lovely evening here.

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.
