Nice location, fairly near to the station. Can get quite busy with limited seating. The food was very nice and were quite large portions.

Small restaurant / bar in one of the best streets in Amsterdam. Close to the cities main attractions and the central train station but not too crowded by the vast amounts of tourists in the city. Good honest food, nice staff and value for money.

The chicken enchiladas were massive and absolutely delicious. I recommend this place for those who love Mexican or Louisiana style food. A wonderful gem!

It is more of a bar than restaurant but that said it is still very nice. Very small but food was good and service was excellent. Not sure if I would recommend but would say a reliable if passing. Little heart sweets with the bill were a nice touch.

Stumbled upon this gem on our way back to the hotel one nigh, it was wonderful! Lovely local atmosphere, mouth watering food (the New York Strip steak was fantastic and big!). The staff were very helpful and friendly, great value for money, good beer! Would definitely go back when we return to Amsterdam1

The food here isn't fancy but it is exceptionally tasty! I had a Jamaican chicken dish which was probably the best chicken I have ever had- lots of different flavours on the plate which were all fantastic. The restaurant has a great atmosphere too and the staff are really friendly. Highly recommended if you want down to earth, tasty food.

Love this place- a small place that looks unassuming on the outside but was a gem of a find. €7.50 for a pint of Heineken and bottle of coke. Then we decided to share a burger which was delicious and homemade. The music is definitely chilled and soul, the whole place is homely and laid back. Definitely worth a look

I've goto Cafe Harleem every time I come into town from the states or Africa to get my my reset to Amsterdam. Great and friendly bar tenders. Guests are awesome and quite beautiful. Especially fun in winter when the Dutch women take of all of those layers of sweaters to reveal their "cat suits". I normally walk there from Amsterdam... More

Following a disappointing visit to Barney's for food, we were just glad to eat. It was very small, with minimal seating so we sat at the bar mostly. No smoking at all, and they'll move tables around to accommodate group sizes where possible. Very steep stairs for the bathroom (note for those to whom it matters). We both had a... More
