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

Great place for a late night drink but get there earlier for one of their burgers they are pretty damn special! The drinks can be a little pricey but service is good and fairly quick and the staff are helpful and friendly which is good. There is a fairly positive and fun going crowd there most nights, good place to... 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

Brilliant restaurant, really quirky design inside and a really friendly vibe. The food is great - we had the special burgers served with chips in a cup which were so tasty. Our party of 13 was for a friends birthday and the service was really personable, very attentive and I would highly recommend this place for casual but great quality... More

Walk in on a Wednesday night. The place was packed with 2s, 4s and larger groups for dinner and drinks. A lively terrace looks appealing when entering the establishment. We were quickly seated, and were given a choice between a few free tables. Service staff was friendly and quick. A choice was offered between the between beers on tap. Balancing... More

The food is really good and the waiters quick and friendly. On thursday an friday its packed (mostly bar-customers) so do not try to eat there without a reservation. During... More

I went to Cafe Vrijdag for drinks and dinner on a Friday night. The place was so crowded we could barely set foot inside, and we waited for 30 minutes to get a table. The food choice is not that broad, so do not go for dinner unless you're up for a burger. I had a made-in-a-glass dessert which was... More
