Great bar! I visit the Schinkelhaven year round and it has proven to be suitable for any possible occasion. I've been here on my own for a well made cup of coffee, with friends to thoroughly sample the collection of special beers and with family for dinner. The waiting staff always makes me feel welcome and the kitchen staff keeps... More

I have been at this café a few times for lunch, dinner and a small jazz concert and I loved the experience every time. It's an authentic local place with nice staff, friendly service and great natural food. Once in summertime I sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed that as well. A great place for after a walk in...

i was recommended this neighbourhood pub near to the old Olympic Stadium of Amsterdam. I went with my wife, a cousin and his wife for lunch. First good sign is that it seems to be popular with the locals. Second a very friendly and warm welcome, in English. Third a menu in English, which is handy for non-natives. The choice... More

We stopped off here for a drink after a stroll through Vondelpark - wish I'd read the review though, because we probably would have stayed for dinner! The staff were very friendly and attentive - we were told to take a seat, and they'd come to us (have experienced this before in London, and found it just meant you waited... More

I visited here today with my partner. The staff were very welcoming and translated the menu for us as it was written in Dutch. I ordered steak and my partner ordered the burger. Both were absolutely outstanding. . Best steak I've ever tasted. .. will definately be visiting again before we leave

I had a vega lasagne which was suprisingly good. They had different kinds of beer including my favorite: Amstel Radler. They coffee was strong and hot. The waitresses were quick and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and the terras was cosy and refreshing after a hot day at the office. I can really recomment it!

What a pleasant surprise was this place, in fact went there twice during our stay in Amsterdam. The first time it was for a late lunch and we got a brilliant burger, just nicely done with all the trimmings and very flavoursome. Then we went the second time in the evening after a long day of trekking he city and... More
