First few times i liked it, as it was a new concept for me, but later I realized that the food was good but not great. Go there once especially if you like sea food. The service is usually ok.

There are three outlets...only one is a corner ‘takeaway establishment’ (great for herring lovers...which now only seem to be served in occasional ‘tabac’ like kiosks)...This is towards the Museumplein. One is near Vondelpark Park (busy) and the other ‘eat in’ is in Spui. We chose...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
