Super sandwich

Super small place near the markets to grab a cool drink or coffee with one of their delicious open sandwiches or hot snacks.Today's pastrami and herring open sandwiches were very tasty!

Had a lovely evening here, great wholesome food. Staff were absolutely lovely, friendly and chatty. So glad we found this place. Only regret was paying at the bar meaning we felt a bit awkward about tipping, regret not leaving a more generous tip. Thanks for having us!!!

Not a bar with chocolate as the name of the place might suggest, but a casual pub/restaurant. Nothing prententious about it, and especially popular with no nonsense people. You get what you ask for, nothing more nothing less. I could recommend their Spanish and Italian anti pasti platter, which is actually genuinely tasty and can be a great option if... More

Fours of us stumbled upon this place looking for lunch. We ordered home-made meatballs, a club sandwich, and two mackerel and shrimps open face sandwiches.

The atmosphere was relaxing... More

Getränke werden doppelt abgerechnet. Einzelne Mitarbeiter sehr unfreundlich. Nette überdachte Terasse. / Charged us double amount of drinks. Some employees very impolite. Nice to sit outside.

First cocktail ok, then they went downhill... Waitress got starter wrong, but apologised. Service ok,but main course took over 45 mins to arrive-but thats due the place being busy! Nice chilled vibe and relaxed atmosphere made up for any glitches...

Ate here last night on our second night in Amsterdam. Made to feel welcome straight away. I had the special of the day, mussels and my partner had the ribs. Both generous sizes and came with home made fries and salad side dishes. We washed this down with a couple of beers. Our waiter was great and the overall atmosphere... More

We went to this restaurant/bar with our children earlyish and had a great time. The service was excellent, the wait staff knowledgable and friendly. We loved the ribs and the special of the day, which was mussels. Both were delivered quickly and were very generous portions. This is technically a bar, but we felt very comfortable sitting outside with our... More

We stayed for a week in De Pijp part of Amsterdam, and enjoyed this bar very much. We found the service to be friendly and fast, and the drinks to be good. We did not eat much of the food but what we had was tasty. We watched a World Cup game here with the locals and everyone remained in... More
