Didn't eat here, but stopped in for a late night drink because it looked cozy inside and it was - very friendly and cool spot.

Nice bar when in the Jordaan area. Always very full so if you see a seat try to catch it. Sometimes music can be a bit loud, but cool crowd compensates!

I enjoy going to Tabac and sitting outside by the canal. It's great for people watching. The Jordaan is full of nice Cafes and Tabac is one of the best.

Discovered Tabac about 5 years ago when I first started going to Amsterdam and return every time. Staff is friendly and they make a good mojito. When it's nice outside, you can sit around the corner overlooking the canal. Great place to pop in to get some bitterballen and other yummy bar snacks. Worth the trip!

Tabac is a nice little bar in the jordaan district of amsterdam. We ate here recently as they serve a selection of small asian dishes which was recommended by a friend.

Cafe Tabac is located in one of the nicest and most pittoresque neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. Next to it, two canals come together and you have a nice view of all the little enlighted bridges. During the evenings, the bar/restaurant gets quite busy but always sourrounded by a nice athmosphere. The food is rather plain and the 'borrelhappjes' (little snacks you... More

On our walk home from the Red Light District to our hotel, we stopped at Cafe Tabac for a beer and were pleasantly surprised. We have never met such nice people as those in Amsterdam and this was true at Cafe Tabac as well. If you are friendly and inquisitive, the people from Amsterdam will receive you warmly. We sat...
