Fabulous rustic slightly shabby restaurant. A favourite of the locals. Take time to try this place. Fast efficient service and good quality basic food that is full of flavour. Good value for money. Add it to your list of places to visit when in Amsterdam

We like tapas. Whenever we goto Spain we eat a lot of tapas. Tapas in Spain is normally the best you'll ever eat. I was wrong. If you want tapas, fly to Amsterdam and eat it here instead.

If you like tapas in a nice and quiet environment go here a little outside of the busy city centre but well worth a visit. Great tapas and perfect friendly service wit a smile!

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.

Duende is the oldest tapas bar in Amsterdam. For over 25 years this bar has been widely recognized for its authentic Spanish food, as well for neighborhood people as for tourists. Good quality food and a nice ambiance do not have to be complicated. The flamenco classes and performances make Duende a Spanish gem in the Jordaan area.
