Our group of four had an evening meal on a Sunday. We didn't have a booking but were readily accommodated with a window table. The food was varied and very fresh, catering to a variety of preferences in our group. Recommended and the staff were friendly and helpful. Many thanks to the waitress who followed us down the street afterwards... More

The worst place where I ate (so to speak) during my trip. Portions was so poor we thought were only appetizer before dinner. Ridicolous prices for insignificant food!

I mean, what is this place about? Spanish ? Are you sure ? I don't even understand how they can have customers, they are "cooking" with very low quality products , a total waste of my time, the best was the water.

They don't deserve even one star.terrible.it shouldn't be called Spanish restaurant. The "food" is plastic , the chorizo was just bought in the Ah in the corner. You can find much better places with Spanish food in Amsterdam

I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the food. We use fresh products and Spanish products imported from Spain (like the chorizo). More

We popped in here before going to a gig - luckily some of the people we were with were regulars, so the owner and manager were both very attentive. We had some cold beers, wonderful food and we enjoyed every second. I had the Gambas and the chicken, both were cooked well and delicious. I will certainly return next time... More

My friends and I were staying in an apartment around the corner and were looking for somewhere local to have dinner after a busy day. We came across Mano a Mano and went in. The inside was very traditional Spanish feeling, and was welcoming. Staff were attentive. We ordered so much food! Many, many empanadas, meatballs, calamares, chorizo and other... More

There are a lot of tapasbars in Amsterdam and the quality differs a lot. This is a really nice choice. The ambiance is traditional spanish, the owner too, and very friendly. The food is just very good, though I'd say it's not the cheapest tapasbar in Amsterdam you could get. The location is magnificent: the square used to be a... More

We stumbled upon this fabulous place and the waitress was very helpful. We neither speak Dutch or Spanish, so didn't have a clue and it was our first night in the city and our first time in Europe. We were lucky she was so helpful and we loved the tapas she recommended. Just the bread and butter were so delicious!... More

Aan het Hugo de Grootplein is een gevel bekleed met glanzende tegeltjes die in een moza��ek de naam van het restaurant laten zien. Mano a Mano is een sfeervolle tapasbar waar je kunt kiezen uit een dertigtal tapas. Met name queso frito, oftewel de gebakken kaas en de pimiento relleno (gevulde paprika) vallen in de smaak. Daarnaast staan er wisselende gerechten op de kaart, zoals zarzuela (Spaanse visschotel) en een dorade van de bakplaat. Met een groot assortiment aan Rioja wijnen beland je al snel in Spaanse sferen.
