Everything was dirty. Dirty plates, dirty forks, dirty glases, dirty tables, dirty floor, the chairs were old and broken, walls are scratched like jails in the movies. I had a look in the kitchen and I saw cockroaches and mouse droppings on the floor. If you care about your health, be aware of this place. I couldn't eat almost nothing,... More

The most fun corner tapas bar, just off Prinzengracht. There is no such thing as 'Amsterdam' cuisine - everything is from everywhere and this little bit of authentic Spain where even the Dutch have to speak in English because all the staff are Spanish, was fantastic. Really lively, fun and the food was superb. Tables are communal and on ours... More

I had lunch with my son at Pata Negra, very few guest at that time, so noise was no problem. Staff was not too interested, but I could make them aware of us when needed. We tried four tapas: Pulpo (a la Gallega): good Calamares (a la Romana): Tasted like - nothing. Empanada: Deep fried, interesting filling, not what I... More

Let me begin by saying the food was really nice, but I found it too expensive. The music was extremely loud, to the point where you had to yell to understand each other. There were a few places in the back, where we could sit, which was a bit better. But it's a restaurant, not a disco! Also, the places... More

Absolutely loved this place, a real gem within the streets of Amsterdam. The atmosphere was fantastic and the whole place had a real authentic feel about it. Could not fault the food and the sangria went down a treat. One word: wow!

At Pata Negra you don't need to make a reservation. Therefore expects that there are multiple companies together at the tables. The service is fast. The food is fantastic, good and in case you haven't had enough, just go for a second round, easy as that!

I ate here as part of a group of 6 people and the first thing I thought when I walked in was "This looks cool!". Love the furnishings and it has a nice, cosy feel to the place. Service was fine although a little slow as it was a busy evening and the food was pretty good. It's a pricey... More

Delicious tapas in a small resto with a very nice vibe. Friendly staff, fast service. Looking forward to trying their food more. The sangria had a strong kick!
