My friends and I ran across this restaurant when we were starving and tired of shopping. We thought it was so quaint. We sat down and were greeted by a very beautiful Scottish gentleman who was our waiter. I decided on the club sandwich and I was in no way disappointed!! I would go far enough to say it was... More

Defo the best eggs I have eaten in my life and very reasonable for the perfect breakfast to kick start a long day in Amsterdam. Eggs benedict and eggs royale were our choices. 8.95 euros for each dish which is a steal considering the quality and taste of the dishes. Defo try it on your next stop in Amsterdam!

Really lovely place, tucked away in a lovely location. Food was really nice, staff very helpful. I think the girl that served us was Jen, lovely Scottish lass. Would recommend.

When we arrived in Amsterdam, we had no idea where to go or what to do. Luckily for us, the first place we stumbled upon after leaving the train station was Greenwoods. Almost full when we arrived, we sat inside and shared a pot of green tea while we sorted out what we were going to do until our Couchsurfing... More

Greenwoods is my favourite place for breakfast in Amsterdam. They have a lovely outdoor eating area where you can enjoy a delicious meal and watch the world go by. I have visited many times over the past year and I have always found the quality of food and service to be impeccable. Their Eggs Royal is second to none and... More

Really good quality and tasty meal with incredibly polite and helpful service! Such a pleasant addition to the mayhem that Amsterdam produces for the faint-hearted! I had the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had and everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meals including the lamb burger. We will definitely be back!

Greenwoods was a good experience for us. The food was good (although the beans tasted like Uncle Ben's), and the service was outstanding. I have only two small complaints. It was not the easiest place to find, but it wasn't too bad because we had my husband's GPS on his phone, and the walk was beautiful (as everything is in... More

We had not booked breakfast at our hotel and we were lucky enough to happen upon Greenwoods which was a 5 min walk from the Crowne Plaza. The food and service were excellent, couldn't fault it; only wish it was open later so we could have our evening meal there. Eggs Benedict was superb as were the salads and open... More

I have been to Greenwoods for a Sunday brunch in August. This small restaurant is very close to Leidseplein and it is the perfect place if you want to have a quiet meal outside the mess of the popular square. I sat inside because the outiside tables were all taken, but the experience was nevertheless unique. The service is extremely... More
