Nice salad

It was a nice day so we sat here and enjoyed a nice salad. The staff looked after us from start to finish and my special requests were catered for without any fuss or problems. Nice decor. Lovely location. Well worth a visit.

Great local cafe, we have visited twice and did have mixed welcomes, the first time was in the evening and was great with nice friendly attentive service, the next time was at lunch and we ordered two drinks and the waiter never came back to us to ask if we would like another drink or if we wished to order...

I might have not spend enough time in it but after having a meal and some drinks I haven't find anything special in this restaurant. Maybe because I'm chef with high expectations. Goods side of it was there was more locals than tourists.

This is one of the better bars / cafes we have been to in Amsterdam. Great selection of beers, the fried food tasting platter is soooooo good, and the service is just wonderful. Really great atmosphere.

We stumbled upon Café Stevens on our 3rd day in Amsterdam. Went in for one drink and left 2 hours later - after lunch and 2 drinks each. Truthfully, we could easily have stayed there for the rest of the day. The staff just can't do enough for you - that perfect mix of friendly and accommodating but laid back... More

Walked by this place whilst staying in Amsterdam for work for 1 night. It looked informal and a nice vibe so I thought I'd pop in and grab a drink. Stayed for 2 and - at the bar - I saw some food go by that looked and smelt VERY good. I asked the guy behind the bar what the... More

Nice relaxed pub near central station. Delicious sandwiches and good prices. We loved the IJ bock beer from Brouwerij'ij, it was the best.

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.
