I really liked the venue, from the outside you really do not expect to discover a restaurant standing on this square but it is! The staff is really nice and friendly the food is OK not gourmet but good and the venue inside is really pleasant. The kind of place where you relax and have a good time with friends.

... but this one should, and deserves a higher rating than it has on trip adviser. We'd done a bit of research before we got to Amsterdam and had a reservation for 7.30 on a Friday evening and were glad we had as the restaurant was otherwise packed. Despite that, the service throughout was friendly, laid back and very efficient.... More

We had a three course meal and every course was delicious. The loveliest vegetarian food I have eaten for a long time. The main course consisted of unusual combinations which worked really well.The service was excellent too. Really friendly, attentive staff. Before leaving I asked if they would open a branch in the UK.

Having had the foresight to book a table before leaving England, we rolled up at 7:00pm on a Sunday evening and were shown to our table in an otherwise packed restaurant. Menus arrived in English (Dutch versions of course are available). Atmosphere was buzzy with attentive staff. We had our two 'picky' teenagers with us, but even they managed to... More

Went here during our stay in Amsterdam. The menu had a great selection and it seemed to be seasonal/rotating. Though the food was great, the only negative for us was the awkward and slow service. Other than that, we would definitely go back here when we next visit!

Nice place, good relaxed atmosphere. Few dishes, which is a good sign, all tasty. The kitchen is visible just behind the bar. Bio beers are ok. A wonderful cat will purr by your feet if you are lucky!

Myself and two friends (two veggies, one gf non-veggie) ate here on a weekend break to Amsterdam and loved it! Incredible dishes, lovely atmosphere and great service. The waiter was very helpful about the gluten-free dishes. We had two 'autumn dishes' and one 'african dish' and they were delicious, great flavours and well-presented. As a veggie, so often you dishes... More

I ate here with 4 colleagues after seeing it recommended in a newspaper review of top 10 places to eat in Amsterdam. Even though it was a Tuesday it was packed and we were lucky to get a table without reservation. It's in a quiet and attractive street not too far from the Museumsplein. I had a wonderful sambal goreng... More

Me and my girl had an amazing dinner here. We are Italians and vegetarian, we know the nice food, and I must say the food was very fresh tasty and good looking. A reason to come again to beautiful Amsterdam.
