We stumbled across this after a day wandering around beautiful Amsterdam. It was a Sunday afternoon and not hugely busy but we took a punt and so glad we did. We ended up staying for a few hours which just flew with great wine and food. It filled up as we sat there and by dinner time was people were... More

I had the tuna steak which was nice, but small. My wife had the tuna salad which was very light on tuna. Also, service is very slow. Disappointing really, considering the price.

Atmosphere is nice, had the tagliatelle with truffle and parmezan, a little too oily and could use more flavoring but not bad, worked with my dry chardonnay. Chocolate caramel cake a bit dry and stiff but had a nice nutty flavor. Restroom is interesting as well, but the actual toilet smelled a bit funny and had some moisture flies wondering... More

My husband and I were staying in a nearby hotel and found this spot while searching for dinner. It was quite late but their kitchen was still open and the staff were wonderfully friendly. The food was good and the atmosphere was great for a Friday night. We've been living in Tuscany for three years so it was a treat... More

Went here for brunch at midday. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. We had the eggs benedict and eggs with cheese and bacon. Only downfall was service was extremely slow..started off with waiting for menus for a long time by which point we had looked online and decided what we wanted. The eggs with bacon should have come with toast... More

I like this place for a weekend lunch or drinks in the afternoon. Good to go to as a couple or with friends. And the location is awesome.

Friendly service, pretty good food. The seating is a little close together and not particularly comfortable. All the staff speak perfect English.

We went there for diner. The restaurant was busy as we went on Valentine's Day but as we made a booking we had a table. The food was good and the personnel very nice. We waited some time but it was not too much. Only weakness: the waiter did not make us try the wine, we're French so it's quite... More

I love this location, the menu and the food at Cafe George, but the service is just awful. There appears to be no system in place and clearly no manager. Please get a proper manager so brunch can be enjoyable me and the people who work there don't have to keep apologizing.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
