The restaurant has a combination of traditional Dutch dishes and more ordinary menu items. I had a Dutch beefsteak that was very good. There was an appetizer called ’Van Dobben’’ Bitterballen, which is basically minced meat formed into small balls, breaded and fried. Neither my wife or I had had anything like it and would recommend it to anyone going... More

Found this gem after walking through many a busy street being harassed by restaurant staff from a variety of different venues. This one was located on the outskirts of the main eating streets and could be accessed from both sides of the building. We sat on the canal side. The portion sizes were huge- I had the ribs and my...

On the Lijnbaansgraacht a little farther away from Leidsenplein. We grabbed had an inside table for 4 and were charmed by the atmosphere. Seemed like some locals dined here so less touristy. Good beer and the food was delicious and filling.

Friendly service, nice local specialities. I highly recommend boiled mussels. This was the most economical deal we had in Amsterdam by the way.

This restaurant is just off the path of the touristy restaurants. The food is good and the service is great. I would definitely recommend this to anybody. Try the fondue. They have good beer too if your not a beer drinker. Also on a nice quiet street.

We ate here on our first night following a recommendation from the owners of the hotel. Considering it is near Leidesplan it doesn't attract the same crowd. The food was excellent with specials on the board. The staff were very helpful in explaining some if the local specialities and our food was excellent and very good value. There was a... More

We spent five days in Amsterdam and found that most dinners at cafés and restaurants were OK, but not great. That was not the case here. The food was excellent, fresh and with inventive combinations of flavors. The staff was outstanding. We paid about 60% of what we had to pay at other restaurants that were just OK. I wish... More

A short walk behind Rijksmuseum is this typical sidewalk place, which I think is one of a small group of restaurants in Amsterdam. They know what they're doing. I stopped in for lunch, got a good steak and fries, and a beer. It was a hot day and this was a perfect, shady respite. Friendly staff. A good place that... More

Our apt was a block away which made this restaurant so convenient. We ate here three nights; outside twice along the canal. The staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient. The food was very good and prices quite reasonable. My husband really enjoyed the beer choices. We would certainly return!

Well placed for access to Leidseplein and the Paradiso but away from the very busy square. We visited for a lunchtime beer (twice) and dinner and were happy with the very friendly service. There is seating outside and more space inside. Dubbel stocks some very special beers and the barman was helpful and enthusiastic when describing them. In the evening... More
