sateh, not fresh prepared, meat tasteless. Fries a bit weak. Only the sauce brought some taste to this spoiled lunch.

We were staying locally for one night and found this place to eat at on trip advisor prior to arrival. We were warmly greeted by staff and we choose to sit outside; while my wife sipped on a nice glass of white wine and read her book, my son and I played football on the green area using a ball...

A bistro style venue just 25m from Sloterdijk station and the Holiday Inn, the Hermes is the one and only decent restaurant in the area. The fish (fresh daily) and the kebabs are delicious. A good range of unusual beers and the friendly atmosphere completes the picture and have persuaded me to return every week that I'm in Amsterdam.

The Grand Cafe Hermes is a traditional Dutch cafe offering a warm and friendly experience. It's convenient if you're staying at the Holiday Inn Express, Sloterdijk, which does not have an in-house restaurant. The food is well prepared and not expensive. The atmosphere is warm and cosy at this time of the year and you are made to feel very... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Sloterdijk and several recommended this restaurant. Everyone was very friendly. I truly wish I had gotten the name of our waitress and she was fantastic. We enjoyed chatting with her We went twice during the week we stayed in Amsterdam. The first time we ordered the burger. It was huge and very delicious.... More

I went to this restaurant the first time because it was raining and the restaurant is close to my hotel. I will return many times! The food was EXCELLENT and the service (from Yvonna, not sure if I've spelled her name correctly) was superb. I ordered the surf and turf and I felt like it was prepared for royalty. Not... More

Service is really good, its a quiet... More

We visited Amsterdam during the week and stayed at an apartment complex nearby. The restaurant was busy but not too loud. The waiter was friendly and the menu was printed in many languages. We ate dinner. The surf and turf was disappointing as the stark was underdone but the shrimp were good. My son loved the ribs and the ladies... More

I have stayed at The Holiday Inn Express by Sloterdijk Station (which is very conveniently on the rail line from Schipol Airport and Amsterdam city) a couple of times and how grateful I am that this hotel only serves breakfast, thus "forcing" me to wander over to the Grand Cafe Hermes. The staff are just brilliant and made me feel... More

I occasionally work closely so was great to find this lovely place just outside the station. Have eaten here 4 times now and the food it reasonably priced and consistently good, service is good, nice atmosphere. Have only been at lunchtime so can't say about the atmosphere for evenings etc, great place to come with friends! We
