The name ‘Pata Negra’ refers to the pata negra jamon ibérico, a very tasty ham from the south of Spain. It’s the ham they cut off with a sharp knife from the leg of a pig. In typical Spanish tapas bars those pig legs hang at the top of a bar as in the picture above.

The ambiance in Para Negra is like most Spanish bars, like an old taverna. Int the walls names have been written and other walls are decorated with hand-painted tiles.

A tapa is a small dish and most tapas vary between € 5,- and € 10,- but if you would like the ham ‘Jamon Iberico’ that will cost you a bit more.

Pata Negra serves about 50 tapas so you have enough to choose from. Try the pimientos de Padron, green chiles from the grill plate. But be careful, sometimes they can be really spicy. Or try the gambas ajillo, shrimps fried in garlic. If you wanna go safe, so no spicy or too much garlic stuff, try the albondigas, these are meatballs in tomato sauce.
