A little piece of Barcelona in a nice corner of Amsterdam

Went there with the family while on a long weekend in Amsterdam. The place is quite busy. Food is very good and staff are friendly. Had to wait to be served as it was quite late in the evening and it was very busy (all tables were booked). Found some gems I hadn't tried for years like esqueixada... read more

I am from Barcelona and honestly its nice to taste the local products when you live away from home, so I enjoyed some features of this place. The menu is very simple, made from imported products but no elaboration at all, directly took from the can. Too expensive.I hate when you arrive to a place and you feel like you... More

We very sorry you got this impression from us the day of the Champions League Final. As far I remember you we were'nt rude at ll with u. Anycase, about the discussion we got with the other costumer you refered, it would be much more honest if you could also explain the reasons of this dispute. Don't hide any part... More

Small, friendly place with good Catalán cuisine. In a quiet area with a loyal clientele. Opens early for FC Barcelona matches!

If you would like to know the Catalan cuisine, this is the place to do it from Amsterdam. Good products from Catalonia and very good service. I'll return in my next visit in Amsterdam.

We where here to celebrate a birthday and made a reservation. After waiting for an hour to order drinks and food we finally had some platters. The taste wasn't what we,a group of 8 so a large variety, expected. It tasted like it came out of pots and cans. The sangria tasted like perfume, the housewine was good. There is... More

I love this authentic Catalan corner in De Pijp. Delicious food and perfect service, plus the best gin&tonic you can get in Amsterdam.

Hi - just to establish my street cred I lived in Barcelona for 4 years and have a bit of experience with Catalan and Spanish cuisine. The guys here are 100% Catalan and the food represents their heritage. Everything was fantastic - will definitely return on or next visit to Amsterdam.

Although a fairly small place to eat (there was seating outside also), we spent a Friday evening here for food and drinks. The place was quiet when we entered, but soon got busy. The 2 men who worked there worked very hard, and even when it got busy, the service levels didn't drop at all. The food was as good,... More

Restaurants close early in Amsterdam, and we were beginning to give up hope of dinner after staying late at the Van Gogh Museum on Friday night. But Taverna Barcelona was still bustling, and the owner welcomed the late-night trade. It's a casual, neighborhood place. The food choices are limited and not really authentic Spanish, but everything we ate was good.

We were originally going out for sushi with some friends one night. When we got there, the sushi place was so crowded and loud that we left and walked down the street. After almost giving up and going home, we saw Taverna Barcelona. I'm glad we did. Taverna is a very cozy place with great family-style service. It’s not big... More
