First stop after a long walk, great atmosphere and selection of beers. Just what we needed! Staff were helpful and the beer was cold.

A wonderful traditional dutch pub, I stopped here for a late lunch with a mate for his birthday. I wasn't sure what I should get but I went with cheese burger with a side of fries. The burger patty was quite tasty and seemed handmade which was quite refreshing as it felt like a home made burger. The side of... More

It's a small and calm restaurant with low range of options, but with enough alternatives to satisfy everybody. Tradicional dutch snacks and plates, like meatball, soups, pancakes, toasts and sandwiches.

Have a seat outside, have a beer or coffee and a lunch and enjoy the activity around you. Located in the heart of old Amsterdam, the streetcar unloads people at that location. Cyclists, school children, mothers, workers all parade by. Lunch and snacks reasonably priced.

We stopped off here over lunch on a rainy day alongside a canal so the views were nice during lunch. A cosy atmosphere with homemade soup - the meatballs was a huge meatball! Welcoming service and good fare.

We ended up here on the way back to our hotel after a busy day in the city centre. The landlady was really nice, offering a great selection of drinks from her very nostalgic bar! Her roaming cat added to our visit as it strolled about the place inspecting everyone before exiting for an evening stroll! It wasn't busy but... More

An "Ooievaar' is a stork apparently, and I feel sure there must be a lovely story to this. Pity I did not find out at the time. As tourists we were staying a block away from Onder die Ooievaar and it became our "local". It has character - lots of wooden tables and chairs - the staff are friendly and... More

i did pick the wrong time of day as they were showing big screen Dutch football and the place was packed. Good choice of beers and still served quickly though. Looking at other reviews I need to return for the lunch options !

A great place to stop and lunch as you wander the streets of Amsterdam. We shared the meatball and smoked chicken salad which we're both very tasty and both came with a generous serving of bread. The service from the bar was excellent as was the visit. Recommend as a lunch pit stop between the Markets
