There was a big group of us that stopped by here for a quick bite to eat. There is a large choice of various sandwiches and some soups too. The sandwiches are fairly small, so if you are hungry then definitely order 3 or 4. I had the soup and it was so tasty. The service was good and the... More

The resto's in the neighborhood are mostly the same. Spare ribs, steak, pizza, ... We chose for La Boca and both had a three course menu. Fried Calamares, steak and ice cream for 16 euro. Not that much but drinks are more expensive, ofcourse ... The food was average/good. Service very fast and friendly. We did like this resto.

Just off Dam Square, this little place has a great value basic set menu with 3 courses for about 15euros, which is a lot less than many grill bars in such a central location. We took an outside table to watch the world go by. We had a calamari starter, then I had a delicious tender steak with trimmings, my... More

I had been walking the streets of North Amsterdam for a few hours and wanted to enjoy a lovely dinner that wasn't too predictable (lots of Italian places and fast food places). Found this quaint place called La Boca and decided to give them a try. Great value for money - I had their 3 course special for €15.95. Food... More

We had a good meal here at reasonable prices. Both steak and seafood. But the staff was the real show here. They were lots of fun and enthusiastic, The service was really good. The sidewalk tables sit in a very busy area. Great for people watching. Definitely a fun place to eat.

came by here, around 12 in the afternoon. wasn't crowded at all, I guess it's more of a dinner place. The food was delicious, the place offered a variety of gluten free options, and the staff was more then helpful.

We visited La Boca on our latest trip to Amsterdam, not knowing the restaurants we stumbled across La Boca and took a chance which definitely paid off! Reasonably priced. Service was great and food was even better! We loved it so much we ended up going back the next day! Would highly recommend!

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
