The worst service I’ve ever seen... The clumsy waiter tripped with the full tray, with the result of a broken glass all over my friend. She had glass splinters all over her, her clothes, and shoes... The waiter apologized, I asked for a cloth to...More

Bright with large windows onto the canal this is a buzzing place with good coffee and a small but appetising menu.

Nice laid back feel, candle-lit tables in the evening, somewhere that doesn't feel like a tourist-trap and isn't too big. Nice casual snacking menu as well as sandwiches and more for lunch. Canal-side location, recommended.

Helpful staff as we entered. Food very ordinary pub food. None of the four of us felt the menu quite described what arrived. Beer was of course good, but a very ordinary meal. Food seemed almost a grudging afterthought in this pub.

Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, very good food at very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit next time you are in Amsterdam. I might go there again tomorrow.

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
