Good food, excellent service! I had the Jamaican Jerked chicken - and I have to say it was the best meal I had in Amsterdam! Great atmosphere!

Went here on a day trip to Amsterdam with relations in the Netherlands who had been there before. Were welcomed and once the waitress realised we didn't speak Dutch changed straight away to English (always put to shame in The Netherlands), had a very rich and flavoursome focaccia sandwich and a chocomelk. Service was good and with a smile. Would... More

A great little pub with delicious food and drink! The bartender made our visit even more special by recommending some live music venues to visit during our stay. He also delicately steered us beyond Heineken to discover some truly amazing Dutch beers. Cheers, and enjoy your time in Amsterdam! (The pumkin and coconut soup was to die for!)

We were searching for a place to hide from the rain and we chose it well ! The staff was very cheerful and nice. We took a beer and salmon sandwiches (around 7€ ). Those were very good and made us feel quite satisfied ! We felt at-ease. We'll come back :-)

The food in this restaurant is good enough that I had dinner here two nights running. The first night I had the Jambalaya which was very interesting, given the varied component that made it up! But it needed more spice. Second night I had the jerked chicken. Again, really good food that would benefit from more spice. Best chips n'... More

Poor service, food worse than mcdonalds. Dont know how they earned current position. The music was fine though. The waiters are some Justin Bieber like kids, so whoever loves him this is a must visit. Everybody else stay away.

We stumbled upon Harlem Soul Food on the hunt for traditional Amsterdam Herring...another story...however I am so pleased we stopped off for a welcome refuel. The staff were helpful and friendly and there was a delicious selection of Lagers on draft as well as some nice bottled offerings. The food menu is limited but we ordered a large sharer of... More

My boyfriend and I wondered off the streets and into this little place after a quick glance at the menu in the window. It is a little cramped when busy but has a great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We ordered the nachos to share which were very tasty and a pretty reasonable price.
