Charming Cafe On the Canal - 3rd July 2015

Beautiful corner cafe with lots of charm, very quaint and lots of locals which I always like to see at any of the restaurants I visit. My wife and I was recommended here by Stuart at Mikes Bike Tours (see review). The cafe had a lovely ambience we sat outside and service was attentive and very... read more

Our family of four was visiting Amsterdam and looking for a nice lunch after visiting the Rijksmuseum and shopping in the area by the canals. A neighbourhood coffee shop recommended the Buffet and we were very happy with our experience. The restaurant is conveniently located, clean and the staff was friendly. The food was delicious and healthy. My daughter and... More

Found this place by accident near Rijkmuseum. Had lunch with our two kids - 11 and 14. Coffee was very good. Service was excellent. Food was good and very healthy. We had the salmon, fish, and beef salads. Fresh ingredients. Great beet root. Lentil base is not for everyone but we really enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

Came here for some wine and cheese to celebrate a friend's birthday- both were good. They have a nice outdoor seating area with heaters that overlooks the canal. The place is cute and comfortable and mostly filled with locals. If you want to try this place I would try calling in to make a reservation. We tried to go in... More

I gave this place three chances, 3 different occasions. Because I wanted it to be good. And partly it is... The location is great, you can have lunch next to the canals. The food is nice - if they have what you planned to choose (twice did not have what we were asking for). But the level of service... the... More

A very good brunch after a long flight to Amsterdam. Excellent breads, tasty cheese, and great coffee. I loved the cheese omelet with the lemon sauce on the side. The service was slow, but that may have been because of a very large party at another set of tables.

Located in the museum district. Good and healthy buffet salad. The half chicken dish for lunch is perfectly roasted. A very nice place to relax after the museum tour.

The place was highly recommended by a friend of ours living in Amsterdam. He recommended any pasta / ravioli dish on the menu and the food was indeed pretty good. We were a bit disappointed by the service though and we felt like we were bothering them. First they refused to let us in with the baby stroller and we... More
