A friendly staff, a nice spot in the centre of Amsterdam and a dinner that tasted great. Feels like home, and I really want to come back once.

Travel frequently through Amsterdam from the US to various points in Europe and Africa. I always stop in Amsterdam for a night and always have dinner at Kop van Jut. Insist on sitting downstairs and watch the kitchen work their magic. The food is always good, the atmosphere is authentic Dutch and it just feels like home every time I... More

Went to Kop de Jut based on the rewiews on Tripadvisor. There was plenty of room a Sunday out off season, and the service was very helpful ( and talkative ), but the food was disappointing.

This sweet little restaurant was easy to book, easy to find, and absolutely glorious. The food was exceptional, probably the best steak (in mushroom and onion sauce) I have ever had! The wine was good, the staff were friendly. I wish we'd gone earlier in our stay so we could have gone twice! Highly recommend it.

With so many lovely places in Amsterdam, there is really no reason to go to the Kop van Jut. We had a high tea arrangement and it was awful. It was nothing like the photo in the groupon advertisement, which showed homemade pies. Instead, what they gave us was a tray full of dry, processed, store bought items. The only... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking around Amsterdam, just past the shopping district. The interior is narrow and crowded, but warm and inviting, with a distinctive local flavor. The staff is friendly, the food good,the atmosphere delightful. If you want a real flavor of Amsterdam in the heart of 'tourista land', this is a place to go. Enjoy the... More

After reading other reviews were were a little disappointed here. This is a small cramped eetcafe with a fairly small menu. Cooking was good but our portion sizes were small and I was glad that I accepted the offer (which I found was added to the bill) of mushrooms to accompany the salad that was provided. I do not know... More

Me and my friend had a lovely meal here. The restaurant was cosy and quaint, the waitress was very sweet and the food was absolutely delicious. Apart from some noisy diners at another table it was a calm oasis to relax in, definitely try the draught beer!

This is a small, welcoming restaurant. I had grilled chicken salad with a delicious dressing and my husband had a lovely lamb shank served with salad and very good fries. It's on a street full of restaurants, but this one is worth seeking out.
