“Good food”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This place seems to be really popular. And it should be! The food is really great. We had the bulls' tails stew, meatballs in tomato sauce, dates with bacon and some other courses, everything was really good. Becuase it seems so popular, it is perhaps smart to make a reservation in advance, especially if you are more than two people.

“Spanish restaurant, with Spanish staff, & a Spanish menu”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Petra and I have been frequenting the 'Pata Negra' in Reinwardtstraat for around 9 years. We live very close so it's become our 'local'. Like many restaurants the 'Pata Negra' has had it's moments, going from very good for many years, to very average for a while, changing with the times, and the cooks and waiting staff that come and go as they do in most restaurants. If I'd written this review 2 years ago the rating would have been much different :))
The good news is the 'Pata negra' is now better than ever! Along with a great team of Spanish/South American staff, José the owner has employed a fantastic 'pintxo' cook, Miguel from Basque country and boy can he cook! Every day except Monday and Tuesday the place is overflowing with mouth-watering 'pintxos' (snacks like tapa's but from the north of Spain, usually with a skewer or tooth-pick through it) 'estofado' tortilla, jamon, roast pork/veal/ and beef, all manner of seafood, a variety of sausages including delicious 'morcia' (blood sausage), and a selection of vegetarian dishes. Most of the produce is imported from Spain.
The pinxtos are available from around 13.00 through to 19.00 and are a real treat. Since Miguel started a few weeks ago we've been there nearly every day! Prices range from €3.00 for a basic snack like bread with a piece of tortilla on top, through to €4.50 for really sophisticated pinxtos that look like pieces of art, and taste like proper authentic Northern Spanish food. 2 or 3 of these are quite filling. In Amsterdam we're used to paying a lot of money for very little quality when it comes to eating, so forking out for this is a pleasure!
They also have a fantastic selection of Spanish wines from €22-€36 to wash everything down while you listen to a little Spanish music. Try the 'Crianza reserva'....... gorgeous :))
Beware this place is full every weekend and a reservation is usually recommended.

“Good environment!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

With my two Japanese friends visiting my other friend who lives in Amsterdam, we went to this restaurant last Saturday evening and... Caramba, this is certainly a good place to hang out with best mates with a good quality of time! We had kind of tapas, although the list of the menus is rather extensive and pricey. However, if you want to be in good Spanish atmosphere, you do not need going to Spain. Everything is there; the scenery, the excellent foods and drinks, warm and friendly staff - it is Heaven on Earth! We were lucky that we came in early, as reservation is usually required, but we will certainly do this when going there the next time. For your information, there is not (yet) a photo available for at the moment due to external renovation to the building at this time, but hey: "No se puede juzgar el libro por su cubierta!" (You cannot judge the book by its cover!)
