We had a really great meal here. The place was heaving and if was a Monday evening. It's an interesting place to look at, covered in graffiti inside and out. In fact, I didn't realise it was actually open as it looks run down on the outside. However, once you walk in it comes alive. The staff worked very quickly... More

We have been trying to get by here for a couple trips now and finally made it. Very small, totally Amsterdam funky type place with great food and atmosphere.

So much fun, what a great Tapas bar in an exciting and vibrant neighborhood. Food was delicious and well prepared had some dates wrapped in bacon that were amazing and the fried whole sardines also hit the spot. Best Sangria and mojitos. All and all we had an amazing time can’t wait to return on our next trip back.

Lovely cosy place with nice Tapas. I didn't fancy tapas in all honesty, my wife won though. Nicely cooked food, the place was packed, vibrant and full of locals. The Potato Bravas is the best I have ever had! The only thing for me personally was that I wanted local food, which is no fault of this place at all.... More

Came here with some colleagues who had previously been. Was not disappointed food kept rolling out and everything was delicious. The atmosphere was quite lively but not so loud you couldn't talk around the table. As soon as the meal finished i recommended to 4 other people who went later in the week!

First impression- i was a bit skeptical about the place. But then, the longer i stayed- the more i loved it. The food is a perfection!! No exaggeration! And drinks are fantastic as well. The only regret is that i found this place on the last day of my stay and didn't manage to visit it again. But 100% will... More

I have visited Pata Negra for more than 10 years, and I have yet to be let down. Great food, great atmosphere and a service minded staff. Highly recommended for both business eating (lunch, dinner) and the more romantic happening.

Its very Bohemian feel and eclectic mix of guests makes this one of my very favourite places to eat in Amsterdam. The interior is dark yet cosy in winter, cool in summer, with candle lit wooden tables surrounded by graffiti covered walls. The tables outside are the perfect place to people watch on long hot summer Amsterdam evenings. The service... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend. Tried to call to make a reservation, but they didn't answer at 2pm. Resorted to making a reservation via a website. Table was confirmed almost immediately, but when we arrived we had to wait for seats at the bar. We didn't accept that so we left. Food may be good, but... More

This was the first meal of this trip to Amsterdam, and having just come back from Seville we were missing Spanish food. I'm happy to say this restaurant didn't disappoint, which might explain why most of the other customers on this rainy lunchtime weekday were Spanish. We had some delicious tapas complemented by some very reasonably priced red and white... More
