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!

We decided to eat here on our last night in Amsterdam because we could choose how much we wanted to eat after days of heavier meals. That turned out to be just right. The tapas were tasty but they could have done more with the...More

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.
