I've been in Boca's last week. The neighborhood, Jordan, is really nice with lots of locals. The atmosphere at the place was really good and it was packed with young people. But.. unfortunately​ the food was not to our taste, we didn't enjoy it at all

This small restaurant was packed and buzzing when we left. They specialise in sharing platters and the one we choose for a light supper was very good. Service was really good, warm and friendly . Provided you're happy with such a noisy background you'll enjoy the vibrancy here. I suffer with back ground noise ,so this did not scale the... More

Went with my parents as a last minute resort for some lunch. We were in for a treat. The sandwiches albeit small are exquisite and delicious and end up having a really good price/quality ratio. Servers were really nice as well.

We stopped in for lunch after not being able to find anything else open. The food was delicious and the serving sizes were perfect for lunch. I definitely recommend!

On the recommendation of a local, we headed to Boca's. We arrived to a very busy venue, but were quickly seated. The staff were attentive and most helpful in assisting with menu selection. We were highly impressed by the platters. They were generous and delicious. The wine list offered great pairings. A great evening!

Simple: you're hungry? Don't get a burger at Boca's. It's not like it didn't taste good, but for €5.50 it was ridiculously small.

We stumbled across this place on our way to the Anne Frank House, fantastic menu of sandwiches and soups, each ranging from 2 to 5 Euros so you get a selection, brilliant in its simplicity and the food was gorgeous, brilliant host and atmosphere bring it all together! Definitely recommend for a relaxing lunch!

We needed a quick feed...tables were booked as it was valentines, but we were early evening so they squeezed us in before the busier evening started. It was decorated beautifully for valentines. The food was spot on, they catered for a few special requests for our children too. Service was efficient and friendly. Very good value for money. Couldn't fault... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. So glad we did. Had a bunch of mini sandwiches tapas style. We were offered a menu in English which was very helpful. Small place and busy. The service was good, not great but sufficient. Food was terrific!

We stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a place that was open on Sunday. The food is served like Tapas only it's not really Spanish food, just options served on small buns. You could get meatballs or goat cheese or pate . . . It might have cost more to eat small portions like this rather than getting a... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
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. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
