Friendly local bar

Friendly, welcoming busy bar in central Amsterdam. Good is good both at lunchtime and in the evenings. (In the evening the menu is much move extensive) Small terrace to watch the world pass by from. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I think one of the best local bars in the center.

In the day time, with the sun pouring in through the big windows facing onto Nieuwmarkt this is a really great place to have a drink and a bite to eat. We'be been using the place for years and the food has always be tasty and hearty. The decor is maybe a little bit too shabby in places to qualify... More

We stayed 3 days in Amsterdam and ate here 3 times! The staff are lovely and the atmosphere is cheerful and uncomplicated. The food is good value and there are some excellent beers. If you don't know which one to try just ask the barman - he is obviously a connoisseur and expert in giving advice.

Visited cafe Stevens for lunch on 2 occasions. Lunchtime staff very friendly and place had a good atmosphere. We both had a salad which was very nice, good portion and at a good price. The following time we shared soup and a sandwich. Soup was fine but the sandwich was average and looked like it had been thrown together. I... More

We dropped by on a wet Sunday when we weren't interested in looking around. But we made a great choice. We had two burgers (Steven's of course) and an omelette and the food was delicious.Two cold beers helped wash it down. Staff were friendly, service was great and the place has a great vibe. We were there during the day... More

There are several restaurants / cafes to pick from in the Nieuwmarkt area and we are happy we picked this one. The menu is written on a chalkboard in dutch but they will translate for you. The food is made from local ingredients and you can tell. I loved every bite. Since we were only there 2 days, we did... More

Super location on Nieuwmarkt Square. Very often busy at lunchtime, and a favourite with local Amsterdammers. Always seems to be packed and have a great buzz in the evening. Wonderful service from very friendly and attentive staff, and a fine selection of great value lunchtime food. The Cafe Stevens sandwich is one of the best sandwiches in Amsterdam!

An unassuming look to this corner cafe but step inside and it is a comfortable, friendly place with a great atmosphere. The selection of beer is very good, service is excellent and the food is tasty. Non-smoking venue makes it very pleasant. One of my favourites in Amsterdam.

This bar is amazing. The bartender was so friendly and even gave us free beer to try. We tried the bitterballen snacks and they were so tasty and good. The location is stellar and it was nice to sit back and relax inside with the windows open.

We were showing a friend around Amsterdam, and ended up in this cafe for a welcome sit down, it being a favourite haunt of my partner for many years. Being unable to decide which beers to try, they were both offered good sized tasters of no less than five separate ones ....something all done with a smile and good advice... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
