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 food was delicious, and service was prompt and helpful.

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. They make the tapas for the day and when they run out, selections are limited. You just point to what you want and they will bring it to the bar or table. The wine list was very nice, with wine by the glass in different price ranges.
We liked pour food, wine, and experience so much that we went back a couple of days later. We were still impressed.

Lucky to get a seat at the bar on a saturday as we had not booked. The atmosphere was great. Busy but friendly. The pintxos were amazing. We had never tried them before. Lovely , fresh ingredients and a great selection. Srrvice was a bit haphazard but they were very busy. Excellent oysters and the octopus was fantastic. Went away woth a full belly and for only 50 euros for both of us with two glasses of wine each. Will be bacl

The food was so creative & delicious that the saying, eye is bigger than stomach was quite true. The service was excellent and the decor was perfect.
