La Oliva, Spanish dishes for everybody to enjoy

Taste the best products the Iberian Peninsula has to offer, from cheeses to pata negra hams.

If, after having tasted Dutch fare, you are hankering for some exoticism, you will enjoy this restaurant, which offers excellent Spanish cuisine. La Oliva, one of Amsterdam's most pleasing restaurants, is located in the heart of the trendy Jordaan neighbourhood. Candlelit tables create a warm atmosphere. Share a plate of "pintxos", tapas from the Basque region, as it is traditionally done. They are chef Alfredo Castillo Hoz's specialty and have ensured him a loyal following. Taste the fillet of monkfish with mushrooms sauce or the marinera clams, and rediscover some of the classics, like pata negra ham, tortillas and octopus salad with French dressing. Choose among the 35 Spanish wines on offer, served by the glass or bottle, to be enjoyed, of course, in moderation. If you feel like ending on a sweet note, try the Catalan cream, the chocolate mousse served with marinated strawberries or a surprising basil and mango panna cota…
