We were lucky to get a spot in this hopping restaurant. You may choose tapas from a selection at the counter, after an explanation of each one. These included meat, vegetarian, cheese options, all quite unique. They were about 5 Euros each, and we had...More

Beautiful restaurant in the heart of Jordaan district with, what seemed to be, authentic pintxos. Good wine and really intimate atmosphere. Reservation is absolutely a must.

I appreciate the place is popular and I see good reviews, but I just did not like the food, tapas at the bar did not look fresh, the temperature of the food when it was served was neither cold nor warm, bread was hard. I...More

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.
