Description: Tia Rosa is a restaurant located at Reguliersgracht, one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam. A place where the free atmosphere of Amsterdam is combined with Spanish charm. Here you are very welcome to get acquainted with the typical Spanish cuisine, a wide range of tapas, and an exquisite selection of wines. Tia Rosa has an authentic Spanish ambience, complete with a beautiful wooden bar, Spanish mosaic, wine barrels, and an open kitchen. You can order several different tapas and enjoy them standing at the bar while drinking a good glass of beer or wine. If you would rather enjoy a full diner experience, then we welcome you into our cosy restaurant or on our lovely little terrace. Tia Rosa is housed in what used to be two identical warehouses called 'De Zon en De Maan', the Sun and Moon, two beautiful now fully restored buildings from the 17th century. That way Tia Rosa is a small piece of Spain located in the middle of the famous Amsterdam canals.

“Best Tapas in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Just a 2 minute stroll from the ever busy Rembrabt Plein, this is a real find. Service was lovely – and that staff enjoy a proper flirt.

With only 20 or so different tapas on the menu everything was fresh. The calamari was spot on – and as for the stuffed dates, wrapped in smoky bacon, drizzled in Dutch syrup and sprinkled with sesame seeds.. a taste explosion!

“very nice tapas and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Had several tapas at this place. They are rather large in size (which is great, since the price is not very cheap). The quality of the tapas was really good. The place provides a very nice atmosphere to relax. The service is not great (rather inexperienced waitress) but they are cheerful and happy. I will definitely come back.

I just love this place, the location, the food, the view, the atmosphere, will be eating there a lot when I go back to Amsterdam. I even ate prawns and I LOVED them, I am no longer eating prawns, again.

“Nice, leisurely meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Had a nice dinner here on a busy night. We had the 6 tapas special. The first 2 tapas came out quickly but we had to wait awhile longer for the other 4. The tapas were good and the service was friendly.
