On a cold day in Amsterdam, La Oliva was a warm and welcoming respite. It's a cozy restaurant, but we were lucky to be seated promptly, next to a large Spanish family. They were helpful in making recommendations from the big selection of tapas. The...More

If you love/like tapas, this is the place to go. Every dish was described to us and if you are lucky enough to get there before 6pm, your selections will be amazing. Everything is so fresh and creative, with a limited amount to be had....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.
