Manzano is located on the Rozengracht in the Jordaan district. It has a courtyard with a terrace in the summer. This is a nice feature because this restaurant is located in a crowded street.  Restaurant Manzano is a Spanish restaurant with a variety of tapas and also starters, main courses and desserts.

This restaurant is very big with several smaller areas which makes it more intimate. We went there on a Wednesday for some tapas. We expected it to be much more crowded, but there were just four other tables occupied.

The restaurant was almost empty, but the food was really great! We had three portions of several tapas; chicken, meat balls and off course some patatas bravas. Everything was very tasteful with a nice touch of garlic in it.  With these tapas we had a bottle of white wine. Because so few people were in the restaurant, the service was very good and fast. The young guy who was serving us, explained everthing and filled up our glasses on time.

Overall, this is a very good restaurant to have some tapas and a nice bottle of wine. Because of the areas, this is a good restaurant for groups. One small remark about bright lights, with some nice romantic lights this place would be perfect.
