It was good place for catching up with friends for a drink, but wasn't really impressed with the food. The bar snacks "tapas" menu was fairly limited and not somewhere I'd consider eating again. The main course burger was dry and my chicken satay was dry and chewy... So great place for a drink, staff are helpful but they really... More

Highly recommend this café. It is situated just a block from Albert Cuypmarket and was close to our apartment. In the two weeks we were in town,, we frequented this café/pub for lunch and our last beer of the evening. Enjoyed the light fixtures and wood, also sat outdoors on a great evening too.. Staff is great, will return as... More

This is a great little restaurant with really good food. It's about a block and a half from the Heineken Experience, and less than that from the street market. We chose this place just by chance and it was probably the best surprise of the trip. I requested a recommendation from the waitress and she did not disappoint. We had... More

We went here for a late tapas dinner first night after arriving as we were still on Aussie time and trying to acclimatise. Great little spot, buzzing with atmosphere. Good tapas and well priced drinks. All up was 34 euro for 5 tapas dishes and 4 drinks so good value.

Tapas, red Wine, good and friendly service. Food is spot on; not pretentious, but honest and super well made. Was served with a smile within 10 min. after ordering. Dimmed light, cosy and relaxed atmosphere. We recommend.... Thanks.

A good "brown" café with a funny name. Ask the bartender for an explanation of "Pilsvogel" and you'll never forget this evening out. We were there on a rainy November night, did not sit outside, already ate at another place and were happy to have made the walk over here none the less. This is one of those places you... More

This bar was recommended by a lady we spoke to in Amsterdam who lived in the area. It was very lively, the staff were friendly and the food was good, the portions are large. We both had the chicken satay which was great as was the beer.
