Friendly, great beer, good food

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

Fine brown cafe in Amsterdam. We were here for a sandwich and a drink. It was good. The place is nice with low light and music pictures on the walls. Afterwards we went to the flower market outside.

Inside it is great, U can tell how long the bar has been there and can easily picture it back in the 40's 50's 60's The staff are really nice and polite, the drinks were nice and priced just the same as...

I come here quite regularly for lunch meetings with colleagues and it never dissapoints. The food is affordable and tasty and the drinkes are decently priced with a great variety in supply. The service itself is not amazing but neither is it something to complain about. To be honest, this is just a realyl relaxed place to go for a... More

Cafe Stevens is located close to Centraal station but a bit out of the main tourist district, so not filled to the brim with them. Lovely staff, great sandwiches (the Stevens sandwich is delicious), bitterballen, and coffee (difficult to find in Europe!), good place to just chill out.

I would say this is one of the best pubs in Amsterdam with its superb location, great selection of bevs and very nice staff. Especially the blonde dude is a looney, can't miss him.
