Cosy cafe.

Clean cafe/restaurant. Friendly staff. Small but effective terrace Cheap prices for drinks. Although not a central location, perfect if you live in the riverienbeurt or at the Amstel station. In the weekend a lot busy, a hub for local residents. Dutch and English languages commonly spoken.

I went with a group of friends on a Friday and the place was buzzing with college students, work colleagues from the neighborhood and small & large groups coming in for a drink, a meal or both. Good menu offering and very interesting fish specials. Good service.... The place is buzzing as I mentioned, so may not be the ideal... More

Nice cafe with good laid back atmosphere. We had lunch here and they served good coffee, Dutch pancakes and sandwiches. People come here to meet or work during the day. In the evening also open for dining and parties. Atmosphere remind me of the 60's, all funiture and decoration. Friendly staff and they played blues music in the background. Cafe... More

We went here once during the week for diner, which was very nice. And the last time we were here for drinks on Friday. The place was packed, so we expected it to be quite a struggle to get a drink at the bar. To our surprise, this went very smoothly and several times at that. They were attentive and... More

Very nice cafe with a good atmosphere. I went here with some friends for drinking a few beers. The place was filled with people which made very cosy that evening. We also decided to eat something. The food was average and flaw from my point of view. This was a little disappointing because the presentation of the dishes made us... More

Relatively new popular place near Rivieren kwartier and Amstel. Limited choice in menu but not expensive and good taste. When crowded service is a bit chaotic but friendly and helpfull.

We went here with about eight persons. Had a burger and a few drinks. The burger was mediocre, nothing special but ok, the service was ok, but when we asked for the check we thought it was very expensive. When we took a further look, we saw extra drinks on our check. They tried to charge us for over 50... More

Food was incredible.. Service exceptional (felt like I was in the US). The vibe here made my company and I stay longer then intended. We tend to be the type that eat and leave but we made ourselves at home here. 2-3 separate areas with different vibes. Go enjoy this place before it becomes to popular!!!!!!! Stay thirsty my friends... More

For years this has been a place where no restaurant could succeed. Cafe Vrijdag (Dutch for Friday) however, has the potential of becoming a popular (Friday afternoon drink after work) place with a modest terrace, basically at the Amstel river (you can't see that much of it though because of the house boats) and a BIG space inside. It is... More
