“Inside cozy to get out of the cold...love the resident cat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

It has been miserable here...cold and raining...found this place around the corner from the Renaissance. Warm and inviting inside. Best calamari ever! 3 prawns with heads, tasty, but shells stuck on...over cooked or old? lamb chops and fried potatoes good and a good sized portion.Garlic shrimp was good and plentiful. Great sangria! Manager was nice and helpful with ordering. We would go back. Beware, they do not take credit cards. This was the first time we ran into this, but the manager said that was common in Amsterdam...who knows. Overall, good food and good sized portions for tapas. Give it a try.

“Spanish done right!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

After recently having visited Spain, and experiencing fabulous food, I was THRILLED to find such a fantastic place near home! We frequently take our guests to Amsterdam, and are always on the lookout for great dinner venues. We will come back here again and again - for sure!

The food, servers, and environment were all authentically Spanish! Manuel was one of our servers, and he was a delight! So attentive and entertaining! Thanks for a new favorite restaurant!

“Wow! Authentic Spanish tapas in Amsterdam!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

We happened upon this charming little place our first afternoon in town. Lovely outdoor seating area reminded us of Paris. Very pleasantly surprised by the tapas menu in Spanish. ( and Dutch and English) very authentic dishes. The dates and bacon and almonds were superb. Within easy walking distance of Central Station.

“Nice tapas... Service, not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Great food in what appears to be an authentic tapas bar. Reasonably priced with good sized portions and nice beer and wine. In fact the only bad point are the staff. Verging on rude, one of the guys, looks a bit like Gok Wan, virtually through the dishes down. Its kind of to be expected in a city not known for its attentive waiters, but he was a bit too surly for my liking.
