Cute neighbourhood café/restaurant just a few blocks away from my house. Very nice terras at a quite residential square with a view of a beautiful church. Once there you should try to enter if it is open. Off centre, tourism, etc. Waiters are usely students, but they are welcoming and friendly. And to be honest, the food never disappointed me.... More

We have been in Amsterdam 4 days and have eaten here twice. The service was very friendly and helpful (we do not speak a word of Dutch so they translated the menu for us). We had the steak, salmon, guinea hen and a veal special. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the wine although the choices are limited.... More

Cook has recently had a renovation and has expanded. The kitchen is still as good as it was before, but there's much more space inside now. The terrace is great in the summer time.

We live in de Baarsjes in Van Galenbuurt. Lately there have been a number of new cafes opening in the area, and we are very happy to see something new coming to the neighborhood. Happy because even though we love living in Holland - we don't love Dutch restaurant service. It usually means hiring very young people (under 23, the... More

We loved the staff. They were super friendly. Good value for the money and the food was very tasty. We had tapas, steak and the goat cheese pastry (which was fantastic).

This neighborhood cafe-style place combines really good and creative food with a lively, relaxed, typically Dutch atmosphere. In summer the terrace overlooks a wonderful square in the up and coming 'Baarsjes' neighborhood. Forget the city center -- this is where Amsterdammers enjoy food, drinks and life nowadays. Highly recommended!
