Wanted an informal, early dinner while visiting Amsterdam and we found Harlem Soul Food in the edges of the Jordaan area. Definitely a neighborhood restaurant and it reminded me of my hometown in that it was a mix of people getting off work and students.

Last time I was in Amsterdam I struggled finding good places to eat, so I made sure I did my research prior to visiting. This restaurant was one of my finds that we decided to try. It is a few blocks away from the train station and tucked away on a quaint street. We arrived late in the afternoon (around... More

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
