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

Went with a friend on a Sunday night. It's in the Jordaan neighborhood of Amsterdam which reminds me of SoHo a bit. I had the gumbo, which was blackeyed peas, rice, tomatoes, chicken and shrimp with a two-bone slab of bbq ribs on top. Not exactly what I was expecting, but very good. On the bartenders recommendation, my friend had... More

Great service and a 'buzzy' atmosphere. It's a small bar, but there is seating outside and at the bar. The food is tasty and the beer plentiful.

After wandering around the sleazy Amsterdam streets looking for a place to sit down and have a simple but decent dinner after constant disappointments regarding the food in this town,we ended up here out of pure luck. The place looks sleazy as it's surroundings but has that unique character of Amsterdam's coffee houses and bistros with trendy music to help... More

As mentioned by others, the nachos are grand! Chips really tasty and fresh toppings. Waiters were very friendly and quick to refill our beers - always nice. Location and outdoor seating make it a great stop at anytime of the day.

This place is a flashback to Harlem NYC. Good music, great service and food not typical to Amsterdam. We had nachos, tuna melt and soup. I don't recommend the tuna melt but the soup and nachos were very good. We stopped in for lunch. I could see this place would be hopping in the evening. They had several outside tables.... More

Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Went for dinner after a long day traveling and had an awesome plate of ribs and some jumbo. Our waiter was fantastic, funny, friendly and helpful. Loved it.

I come here often for a beer and nachos with toppings from the oven, coffee and apple pie, a veggie club sandwich or nice dinner. I enjoy the relaxed athmosphere, friendly staf and vibrant location. Just one request: soy or almond milk as an option for my latté!
