Absolutely amazing food and the staff is incredible. Basically all the dishes are worth a try but the seafood is exceptional and. Vegetarians won't be disappointed either. Humble interior and authentic atmosphere. I always go here when visiting Amsterdam and sometimes it is actually one of the main reasons.

We had a really good meal with lots of tapas , the baby grilled squid were really delicious as was the steak on toast. The wait staff were good and the atmosphere was genuine. It was good value for money with a fine glass of cava.

I really liked this tapas bar! It's small and authentic, they serve very nice tapas and the sangria is very good! But be careful, it hits you before you know it! :D I think it is also reasonably priced.

Over a week into vacation and walked by this place - saw the TA sticker and optimistic. Decor is fantastic and table outside. Enjoyed a liter of red sangria - enjoyed a number of tapas. Calamari, bread with mayo, shrimp in garlic, patatas bravas and the amazing and ridiculously outstanding goat cheese in Serrano ham. It was so good we... More

Quirky decor , nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Good menu, enough choice without being too long. All our dishes were really tasty. You must try the meatballs. Good value for money. We had a good evening there.

We took our teens here on our first night in Amsterdam and were pleased they could fit us in without a reservation. The place was full and buzzing and the staff were really friendly. Service was efficient. We ordered the standard tapas for two and the kids ordered something specific. The tapas mix was a great selection and everything was... More

I am not a big fan of tapas in Amsterdam because they are often not worth it. But I have to say I was very happy with Paso Doble. The variety of food, quality and price are just perfect for a night out with some friends. We had some house wine and about 5 different tapas. They have all classics... More

As an Spanish person I feel confident on criticizing this restaurant, and unfortunately I have to say that it was a disgrace. The food was horrible, the worst tortilla ever in my life (it is difficult to make it worse), the bread with tomato or pa amb tomàquet came with raisins!!! The service was also bad. On top of it...

Went here for dinner with colleagues, absolutely loved the sangria and the atmosphere. Food was good, the expected selection of tapas which tasted good. Would recommend this place for fun and casual dinners and drinks, not the most exquisite food.

Located just slightly off the beaten path in the Joordan area of Amsterdam, this was a nice surprise. We ordered about five different items from the menu and all were very good. So was the red sangria, although the pitcher was very small and filled with a lot of ice (strange- finding ice in much of Europe is difficult, so... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
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. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
