We found Catala by accident and thought it was very authentic and the food was delicious. We sat up at the bar and had a very nice time. Highly recommended.

We went here for a small bite. Tapas were great, especially the Chorizo and the Spanish Tortilla. I went to several Tapas bars in the Netherlands and in Barcelona, but this one was one of the better ones.

We had one mixed fish plate, which was enough for us two. Fish was very nice prepared and very fresh. Good quality for a reasonable price!

This was a very good tapas bar! The food, the staff and the place, everything was just gorgeous! We really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was very nice and we liked to sit and watch all the people moving on the street. We would like to come back another time. Thanks, Inger from Sweden.

It felt a bit reckless to go into a tapas place in this road of restaurants in the centre of Amsterdam. If Barcelona has gone downhill with its tapas, what chance for a place in Spuistraat? Espinacs, Xipirons, etc were excellent. The albondigas in a gravy with some peas, etc was a bit bland and disappointing though. Portions were a... More
