This restaurant had a huge variety of tapas (pintxos) to choose from. We tried a bunch of them and every one was absolutely delicious. One of the chefs from the restaurant explained each one to us so we could choose the ones that we wanted to try/eat.
The restaurant was cozy. I'm glad we made reservations, because it was busy, even on a weeknight. It's a nice restaurant, not a typical "family style" restaurant yet we were there with our young children and they were kind and welcoming to all of us.

Good service and excellent food! The location is super cute and calm. Good Rioja wine and good Spanish beer.

Delicious tapas chosen from the counter at a very reasonable price and a great wine-list. We highly recommend the place.

A cosy atmosphere inside and nice view outside, two options available for guests to choose. Ideal for travellers to have good food in a corner of Amsterdam....

food idea was really good - lots of visible pintxos / tapas / small plates on display and the ambience was great but we were 'served' by some of the rudest, aloof and unhelpful staff i have ever come across. They seemed to be arrogant and full of self-importance, they made me feel unwelcome and were actually belittling to others. There were a few Dutch in who may have been regulars as they were getting sociable service. go for the atmosphere but don't ask any questions or expect any help
