We had a great experience here; Carles and Francisco are make this tiny restaurant hum with warmth and homeyness. The tapas average to above-average, but visiting a place like Taverna Barcelona, I am reminded that there is so much more to a dining experience than just the food. The wine list is great, and the service was excellent and pampering,... More

Carlos and Fran, who run the place are super super kind, friendly and peaceful. The food was super great. As a Catalan I can say it was such a surprise! Highly... More

I had a Thursday dinner with my friend. It was hard to decide if we want a full meal or just tapas, so we ordered a set of tapas. Food was delicious and wine as well. Quite pricey for a small place like this. Of course, is just around the corner from Pijp but still... The waiter and the chef... More

We were strolling past here about 11.30pm one evening and fancied a nightcap and a snack. The host was charming but he soon became very run down with a table of 8 around the corner. The service was very slow therefore as the only other chap was busy in the open kitchen. I had a Catalan Omelette which was mediocre.... More

This is a great place if you'd like to enjoy original catalan tapas and really good beer. It's a really small restaurant, where everything is handmade, the ingredients are fresh and all the food is made daily. The owners are the most friendly people ever. And the atmosphere os really relaxed. If you love aioli you should take a visit!... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
