As far as the Amsterdam establishments located at the two famous entertainment area squares Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein, this venue (located at the former) is by far my favourite. The food is honest and above average, the service is (just) above standard and the location is great. Still the... read more

The meal was excellent. The service was excellent and not hurried. We sat on the patio with really nice lighting, an outside feel but no smoke.

In A good location at the Rembrandt -Plain, medium stuff with a medium engaged staff will be served. The service Team did not know the Daily special aß well aß the production details.. It was not possible to order a cheese sauce without spinache. No feedback to the food was recommended... No need to come back... But nice interieur..

After living near Rembrandplein for a while and visiting Amsterdam on a regular basis in last 12 years I am still convinced that Opera is the best café! Good choice of beers, great choice and quality of food, nice terrace and interior, excellent service and good coffee. Need I say more? ;-)

On my third trip to Amsterdam I will surely have breakfast again in this nice cafe'. Excellent breakfast, the most exquisite greek yogurt with strawberries in a city where eating fruit for breakfast seemed a mission impossible. I loved it.

Took long time to get our food when ordering breakfast, and it wasn't any special or good. The staff seemed tired and wasn't too polite either.

I think this place is very touristic, not many Netherlanders would sit there, but still, their service is quick, pleasant and attentive, and their food is reasonable good with generous portions. Nice selection of beers too.
