I really wanted an authentic Dutch food experience so my friend recommended this place. We walked in and the waiting area was full, and the place itself was quite small. We waited around 45 minutes before they had a table for us and you can't call ahead which sucks. The restaurant itself is quite small but we were fine once... More

It may be hard to fine a restaurant offering local food in Amsterdam, this restaurant seems to be family owned and the best recommendation that it serves local food is because grandpas, grannies and people in the 40's and 50s visit this restaurant very often! it is a bit hrad to find a free spot during dinner time but table...

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
