Must commend them on their food , although the potatoes look like it's from the packet but very nice . I enjoyed their food and would go again. A little pricey even for Amsterdam.

We found this place on a wet rainy walk in Amsterdam. Although it was raining we chose to sit outside undercover, so we could sit and watch the foot and cycle traffic pass by. The waiter was very attentive and friendly. The food was really yum! The house red was great. It was also reasonably priced. I highly recommend Joselito.

After recently having visited Spain, and experiencing fabulous food, I was THRILLED to find such a fantastic place near home! We frequently take our guests to Amsterdam, and are always on the lookout for great dinner venues. We will come back here again and again - for sure! The food, servers, and environment were all authentically Spanish! Manuel was one... More

We happened upon this charming little place our first afternoon in town. Lovely outdoor seating area reminded us of Paris. Very pleasantly surprised by the tapas menu in Spanish. ( and Dutch and English) very authentic dishes. The dates and bacon and almonds were superb. Within easy walking distance of Central Station.

Great food in what appears to be an authentic tapas bar. Reasonably priced with good sized portions and nice beer and wine. In fact the only bad point are the staff. Verging on rude, one of the guys, looks a bit like Gok Wan, virtually through the dishes down. Its kind of to be expected in a city not known... More

Outstanding little treasure! Visited twice over several years and still had the same glowing experience. Excellent tapas (don't miss the bacon wrapped dates ) and sangria (the half-liter won't be enough). And please be sure to pet the resident tabby cat, Gigi, who is clearly Queen Regent en residente.
