Came here on a Sunday night craving sushi. We didn't come with high expectations but we were just hoping to have decent sushi. The restaurant was pretty empty and the hostess sat us in the corner. We asked to possibly sit at another table because there were plenty of options but the hostess would not allow it. A server asked... More

A place to be in Amsterdam. You need to book in advance because it is not that big and very popular.

Good quality food served in small portions, so one can try several dishes. Service is friendly and fast. Wine selection is good, but not excellent. Depending on the choice of food and wine, the bill can become expensive. In the center of Amstedam.

Everything about Izakaya was great; the food, the people, the vibe, the presentation, the service. ABSOLUTELY fabulous food outlet.

Sampled the bar only. A more pretentious place than others we visited. Cocktails at 15€ each were not that great and made by unfriendly bar staff. Strange house music provided by a very mature DJ. All clientele were dressed up tourists trying to impress. Was given a "pass" by the waitress for local, secret hangout - Butcher. See separate review... More

It goes up and down on price. One time I will have dinner and it cost me 75 a head, the next time 125. Have not figured this out yet. I love the food and the service. Location is also good. In my opinion the better restaurant in the chain. I am a regular so I will be back

WRONG RESERVATION We chose this restaurant because of the good recommendations at tripadvisor. I had made a reservation one week upfront and booked a table for two. The day of arrival the very friendly lady called me to confirm that we would be 19.00 there, but also that we only had 2 hours for dinner and then had to leave.... More

The place that you should see when in Amsterdam. The food is outstanding, creative and delicious. Wagyu beef one of the best, especially the truffle sauce that comes with it. Izakaya spritz is a must. You should make a reservation a few days in advancw though.

The price is steep here. Also, you don't have any "filler" dishes like noodles or bread. You only have steamed white rice. The sushi, perfect! Huge chunks of tuna in it, king crab, you name it, they got it. Don't forget to order desserts. These are special and very great in taste!

Although we'd read up about the Hotel, we hadn't really done our homework on the restaurant. We weren't planning to eat at Izakaya, but decided to have a light lunch on the day of our arrival in Amsterdam, before going into the city. Izakaya is a place which buzzes at night, but is more sedate at lunchtime, which suited us.... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
