The characteristic building at number 21 in the famous Reguliersdwarsstraat in the city centre of Amsterdam has a warm and relaxed ambiance. The interior has a retro look with a cheerful Mediterranean-Caribbean twist. The large bar with an extensive collection of spirits jumps right in the eye and invites you to drink one of our cocktails or just an ice cold beer. The menu consists of classic dishes, with an emphasis on comfort food. As a starter we serve for example a crispy Soft Shell Crab in tempura or Quinoa salad with figs, blue cheese and bacon.For the main dish we can not miss the Red Snapper: the fillet grilled with a Caribbean salsa and served with a cous cous salad. Or do you prefer a Surf 'n Turf with Diamond Fillet and Black Tiger Prawns? We serve also all time favorites with a "Snappers twist" as Fish & Chips and juicy BBQ Ribs. The prices of the entrees remain all under 10 euros, the prices of the main courses range from 12 to 18 euros. Oscar Steginga responsible for the cocktails, has made a beautiful cocktail menu including classic tiki and tropical cocktails. He works with lots of fresh fruit and homemade juices. And you can taste it! Take for example the Big Bamboo, including a mix of pineapple, overproof rum and Havana 3y. He uses homemade syrups such as rice syrup in the Healthy Pluym (Ketel One Vodka, green tea, prosecco and lemon in it). Furthermore, there are all sorts of Gin & Tonic combination served in perfect harmony.

OH MY GOD!!!!

Possibly the best accidental find of our entire break away. Me and the GF stumbled upon Snappers through the Tripadvisor App after the first choice place fell through from being too busy. How lucky were we to find this place, it was ah-mah-zing!!! The burgers were so frigging good I nearly orgasmed... read more

We decided to eat here after reading the reviews. Can honestly say it was a good decision. The food looks a bit pricey but don't worry, the portions are double the UK. I had the ribs which in all honesty, was the best I've ever had. They just melted of the rack (full). As per everywhere else in Dam, lager... More

The staff were friendly, made me a personalised cocktail and gave recommendations for places to go after. We visited twice and it never disappointed. They also let me have dessert first so I could try it and have room for those fabulous ribs!!!

I had a mexican burger which was the best I ever had. My gf had the ribs which I ended up finishing too (she loved them, but it was too much for her) and I loved them as well. I would go back to Amsterdam just for this restaurant.

I had the best spareribs in my life! My girlfriend had an awesome burger, too. The location is kind of fancy (hipster place). The service is surpassing. They have an amazing drink selection. Highly recommended!
