The nicest restaurant I've eaten in in a long time. The night we dined there you could choose from a menu or choose from over 30 different pintxos at the counter. They all made your mouth water just looking at them. We chose starters from...More

Very busy restaurant with a great atmosphere. Order food at the bar - all authentic pintxos (small snacks on bread mostly) then the friendly staff bring them, cooked if required, to your table. Worth booking as gets pretty packed

We went to this restaurant for having lunch on a Friday. Wonderful place, with friendly staff in a cosy atmosphere. Try the home-made Tortilla's (best to take different Tortilla's and share those). Take a bottle of wine (they have good wines against a good price)...More

Very nice location in Jordaan. Cozy place with lovely food. Reservation is recommended. Pintxos are enough meal itself.

L'Oliva is a small Spanish restaurant in the trendy Jordaan area of Amsterdam and it reflects the charme of neighborhood. Simple yet elegant, the food offering is excellent and luckily based on real Spanish dishes, rather than on the easy tricky tapas concept. The menu...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
