Fantastic!!! We ate pinchos, which were excellent. There was a great selection and the waiter explained what was in each one. We also wanted drink sangria, which they didn't have but the waiter suggested he could make something similar, which was also lovely. Great service...More

Great for wine and dinner. Give your trust over the the chefs and waiters/waitresses and you will not be sorry! Was pricey, which was the only downside.

We ended up here because many places were closed on this rainy, cold Sunday. We were glad we did. Good food and good service. Reasonable food and wine. Nice atmosphere. Very friendly wait staff. We ate mostly pinxtos but also off the menu.

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.
