We saw some good reviews for this place and thought we'd check it out on our last night in Amsterdam. My partner and I both got the same dish (beef stew), which was nice however we were both underwhelmed by the small portion given to us to share. Looking around we couldn't help but notice other customers being brought out... More

We wanted a traditional Dutch meal so chose this place on account of the write up in the lonely planet book on the 'Dam. It was a bit out of the centre so the prices were very reasonable. Staff were friendly and gave us translations for anything we queried. The restaurant was full of Dutch people and the atmosphere was... More

Hap-hmmm is a very cosy almost hidden restaurant where you can only order typical Dutch food. Your veggies are your own choice selection as well as your meat. Never tried Dutch food? Go on, give it a try! You might even like it and come back?!!

I'm surprised at the positive reviews of this place because it was truly the worst food we'd ever seen and had the misfortune to eat on any continent. And the service was worse than the food. My friend had 'Grandma's meatballs' which were extremely salty and looked so disgusting she took a phot of them (this friend is has worked... More

We were keen to try traditional Dutch cuisine, and this came with lots of recommendations, but clearly from people who were easy to please - at least my meatballs were just about edible (I was hungry), although oversalted and stodgy, while the calamari were beyond disgusting ... service was stern, and when we pointed out that the calamari was inedible...

On my first visit to Amsterdam we found this little restaurant. Tucked away and a small distance from the city centre this was the just the kind of place we were looking for. The evening we were there it was full of Dutch families enjoying home style dutch food which is always a good sign! Seated quickly, the staff were... More

We have been here a couple of times already, but the last time was about a year ago. When we wanted to grab a quick dinner last night, it was as busy as always. But that's a good thing ofcourse, people like to be there. We ordered a starter and a maincourse, both we're good and the meatball is just... More

Visited on the back of some good reviews and a search for Dutch food. We were not disappointed - quite the opposite. The menu is short, simple, but everything we ordered tasted so good (even boiled potatoes were very more-ish). A family atmosphere and kind staff topped it off, along with the bill for under 40 euros for 2 courses... More

On our last day in Amsterdam, decided to search for some authentic Dutch meal and found this on recommendations online. Was not disappointed. Place was busy and service casual but never to the point of rude. People were sharing tables and the rule was if you see seats, just take it. Meal was excellent home cooked traditional Dutch food with... More
