Found this place wandering around the Jordaan and loved the character of the place - great guy behind the bar and good choice of beers on tap. It was nice to sit and watch the world go by and could have sat otuside in January as it was sunny. Steps to the toilet are very steep and curve round so... More

Nice bar, would have been nicer if service was better, but they were really crowded when we went, so it can happen. Food and drinks were OK, nothing great but neither bad.

I stumbled on this place after visiting Anne Frank House (which is well worth a visit). I ended up people watching and watching the world go by from this place. Very cosy with a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. If I go back to Amsterdam, would love to go back to this place.

We walked around the area looking for a place to eat and came across this place. It was so nice. Atmosphere was excellent, very cozy. Food was excellent also, and had good drinks to choose from.

Have been coming here for about 5 years anytime I'm in the city. Love the staff, food and location. Weather permitting, you can eat outside. If that doesn't work, the restaurant is very cozy. They always have several specials of the day. You can't go wrong with their soups. And the french fries are wonderful!! If you use the "facilities",... More

Been here several times. Great location. A bit dark and dingy inside. Food is good. Service is consistently bad - innattentive and slow. Order coffee and cake and they never arrive together - cake arrives long after coffee is finished or cold. They really are clueless in this place. After several visits today was my last.

Located in a nice canal corner. Very good food at reasonably prices. The only waiter was nice and helpfull, however, as it was getting later, the movement turned out to be too much for him to handle by himself and service got a little too slow. Nevertheless, we reccomend it because of the quality meal.

We were out for a beer and some decent pub food which the Vergulde Gaper provided. The food was a notch up from the usual pub food and we enjoyed a few beers in a great and authentic atmosphere. Service was prompt and attentive. A very enjoyable evening!

We were cycling around Jordaan area and stumbled on this cosy place. Sit outside so it gives you the relaxing sensation of Amsterdam. Highly recommend the club sandwich and onion soup. Staff are friendly price is reasonable as well. Must give it a try if you are near and hungry...
