Great tapas food although expensive. Staff and owners were very friendly and the Sangria was very good. The decor was very pretty as well.

Absolutely vile. First of all, a used, germ-ridden receipt was found floating in my drink. Patatas bravas were in fact very dry, plain roast potatoes with a pot of mayo. The meatballs tasted like they were made from the poorest quality horse meat you could possibly buy, and the chicken was dry as chuff with absolutely zero taste. €8 per... More

Went here needing a small meal & was passing the tapas restaurant. Lovely & quaint inside, ordered 4 dishes including potatas bravas, calamari, chicken & chorizo. Portions were very generous, more than I thought which was excellent, just a shame I wasn't as hungry as usual, quality of all the dishes were excellent. Service was excellent when we wanted it...

This is one of my favourite tapas places outside of Spain. The portion sizes are amazing which means great value for money. The food is also very well prepared and tasty. Highly recommend the calamari or the lamp chops. Service is attentive and quick. Would highly recommend taking a visit if in Amsterdam.

We had dinner here. They have a full bar, nice music and delicious food. The Sangria was very good. They have seafood, pork, and good desserts. All served tapas style.

We'd seen the lines for the restaurant, but were lucky enough to get a table on a Friday evening. The menu seemed to be all tapas, quite an array. Our helpful service answered questions, and we totally enjoyed the goat cheese pastries, the green salad with chicken/avocados/tomatoes, the beef kabob with beautiful asparagus/broccoli, and dates wrapped in bacon. The carafe... More

Unprofessional service and attitude from the owner-waiter who appeared tipsy and was speaking impolitely. His friend who was drinking with him at the bar took the order for fun, although it was not busy at all. The food was good.

We enjoyed this restaurant twice while in Amsterdam. Our food was well seasoned. I especially liked the lamb. These are large servings for tapas, but I was ok with that. The kids loved the shrimp in garlic butter and olive oil. The salads were good and fresh as well. I like the sangria, but not as much as I did... More
