We stumbled upon this restaurant. It has a nice setting. The lunch menu is basic. My husband and I both ordered cheeseburgers. There was something odd about the beef texture. It certainly wasn't fresh beef. On top of that, the server was not friendly. A small smile would make a difference!

I come here often with my friends. Really good food for reasonable prices, ideal for students. You should also check the signs on the walls for weekly specials. It's almost always busy at dinnertime so be early or you'll have to wait 10 to 20 min. for a table (they don't do reservations). But you should definitely try this restaurant!

We had spent hours looking for somewhere to sit outside and have dinner but as it was exceptionally busy and sunny, there weren't many free tables. we stumbled upon this little gem whilst walking down an alley. We noticed an empty table and took our seats in the sunshine. A very friendly and pleasant lady came and took our order.... More

We were just in Amsterdam and stumbled onto the restaurant. Our friends had eaten lunch there the day before and were happy to go back for dinner. They have seating both inside at a table or the bar and tables outside with infra-red heaters to take off the chill of a spring evening. I had the Schnitzel with sautéed mushrooms... More

I had the short ribs, the speciality of the house. For not too much money, I ended up with 12 ribs! The fries tasted like they had been cut from real potatoes and the salad (cole slaw) was good too. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the service was efficient,

Waitresses spoke English and were so polite. The service was a little bit slow, but we went there on a Saturday evening, and the restaurant was full - couldn't blame the staff. I had the spare ribs, which were delicious. It should be enough for two people. My boyfriend had the schinitzel with mushrooms and brie cheese, which was also... More

Very friendly greeting and great service from both the lady and man who were serving. Has baguettes, frites and beer all for 20euro. The baguettes were oozing with filling and came with a lovely fresh,... More

Good gastro pub in the very centre of the city. Beef was of a good quality and the atmosphere was informal and friendly. I would recommend it.

We stumbled upon this place one afternoon when doing a bit of shopping. We wanted hearty food as it was freezing outside and this bar was warm and inviting, not to mention really busy so we thought we'd give it a go. The food was plain but good. They have a few specials on the menu every day and the... More
