We didn't eat here, but such a good atmosphere and so friendly we stayed far longer than we expected to. This is a great little spot and the beer is fantastic, this place is a must for any visitor.

Cafe Oporto is a hidden gem found in the center of Amsterdam, just off Damrak. Small in size it punches high above its weight in character. If you enjoy rock music, good beer, and better craic then this is the bar for you. Please note...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
