Great service, good food

Stopped by tonight as walking around the area looking to dine. Really friendly and welcoming staff, authentic tasting Asian fusion food and good beers. Would return!

We tend to visit Cafe Tabac during the day, but we have seen it packed in the evening. It has just a few tables outside on the corner of Brouwersgracht so you can watch the world go by. Inside there is a famous view out of the double height sash windows across Prinsengracht to the Noorderkerk church in the Jordaan,... More

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. The food was fine and typical fusion food with decent flavours. The place gets busy at weekends but its a nice spot and has a great atmosphere. Everyone is... More
