Watching the world go by!

On a lovely evening, two of us shared three dishes and sat and relaxed and watched the world go by. The staff were knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. Great spot, good good, super staff.

This is the second time that I ate at Joselito. The other time was in 2013. Both times I had disapointments. The first time I did not know what to chose and I went for the Plata Joselito and it disapointed me for the items included in it. The service then was a bit less than correct but I considerd...

This restaurant was great for a late night bite to eat. It is a Spanish restaurant with tapas. Sangria was great, staff was very personable and the tapas were authentic Spanish cuisine. Bring cash because they do not accept credit cards.

We stumbled on Joselito's and ended up eating there twice! Great sidewalk view, wait staff very attentive and the tapas were authentic. No credit cards, bring cash.

Tapas means small dishes for a snack or lunch. Joselito's is located near the Renaissance Hotel and the places to get a canal tour. We stopped in for lunch before a canal tour. I had a bowl of great lamb stew, with lots of lamb in it. Dave had fish croquettes. I was told croquettes are typical Dutch food. We... More

My best recommendations for this restaurant. So nice food and staff. The best tapas ever and it was not even expensive. Small but very cozy restaurant and the staff was excellent. I will definately come back the next time I will come to Amsterdam.

We went last night for a meal, some tapas and wine, the house red was pretty awful. I had the Chuletas (lamb chops) very small with fried potato cubes. My wife had Patatas Bravas, the same fried potatoes with some chilli mayo. We also had the Padron Peppers and the croquettas which were very nice. The staff were very friendly... More

If you're wandering around the central city and aren't sure if you want an expensive meal as a splurge to your budget or if you want to stay mindful of your budget but don't want fast food - this tapas restaurant would be a good pick! Small restaurant with few tables so it gets busy easily and is noisy -... More
