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

visited here while on business and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and standard of service, which was attentive without being overbearing. The steak was of very good quality and I would recommend a visit if in the area

Wonderful steak in this great restaurant/pub in Amsterdam. After a walk through nearby Vondelpark I drifted into this pub early on their Trivia night but the staff were great and seriously the best steak, perfectly done on a small bed of al dente veg, with 'friet' as a side, just wonderful. Complimented the chef and the bar staff could not... More

Located next to the park and the crew is friendly. Mostly shade though, and a bit overpriced. A nice selection of various beers and a decent place to sit if you don't feel like being surrounded by kids (on the other side of the street in the bar in the park).

Last night my friend and I both had a lovely meal each here. She had fish, cooked beautifully and served on asparagus, green beans, tomatoes and carrot with new potatoes and vinaigrette. Very tasty. I had steak served with same vegetables except for lovely chips instead of the potatoes. Friendly service, a pleasant ambience and all for less than 40... More

We loved the alfresco casual dining. The food was fresh and plentiful. The waiters spoke good English and were able to translate the menus for us.

Easy, casual dining at the entrance to Vondelpark. Friendly effective service and great food. You think a burger is a burger but their burgers are great. Also had a very nice steak another night. Easily feed a family of four for around EUR50.00 with beer and wine.

We stopped in for a late night snack and brew. We enjoyed the special of the night which was their bread and butter pudding. Previously we travelled the UK and had our fair share of puddings , but this was the best we had! Thank you again for the night cap! Great service, atmosphere and food! We hope to be... More

This cafe (also restaurant/bar) has a little of everything. Cosy, a little trendy, decent food, friendly staff, nice location (right near western exit of the Vondelpark on Amstelveenseweg). I went for dinner with parents who were visiting and staying near the Vondelpark - they were happy (and they are hard to please). The terrace looks like it would be a... More
