“Cool tapas place in Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

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!

“Real Tapas are another thing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Despite all the enthusiastic comment about this place i found the tapas i ordered nothing of special. I have lived for one year in Sevilla and i know how tasty can be a tapas.Here instead tortilla tasteless, chicken ajillo with a very strong smell of chicken, ensaladilla ok and pescado a la plancha not bad. Service friendly and easy going and good atmosphere but the taste of Spain is another thing.

“Pricey mot yummy and after so many years a real disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Have visited this restaurant in this very nice street in the past many times. It changes from a nice and good tapas restaurant in a pricey, not clean, not tasteful place. It's all and only about the money.

“Pricey but yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Pricey, but got this recommended by a friend and it had been a while since we had tapas. Cozy but small place, and no English menu (combined with a horrible sort of very small brush-font making it even more difficult to read the menu). We got help from someone in the staff speaking English though, so that was nice. Ate pretty much everything we got served, and the sangria was nice.

“Dishonest lying staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

My wife and her friends just had a very bad experience at pata negra. After deciding to leave to go and eat elsewhere, a member of staff offered them a drink on the house if they stayed. They all asked for Sangria. After a very average dinner the invoice included a €25 charge for Sangria. After trying to explain to the manager what had happened, the staff member in question denied offering them the sangria stating the offer didn't count for sangria! and they had to pay for it.
As a member if the utrechtsestraat community and owner if a boutique hotel I will no longer recommend pata negra and send business their way. Disgusting!
