A hidden Gem!

Stumbled on this place while looking for a place to eat in the area. It's off the beaten path... So felt like a place for locals and not too many tourist. The food was delicious! I ordered the ribs and the meat was falling off bone. The staff was friendly... One waiter forgot to bring out an... read more

Great, little restaurant! We had the beef Carpaccio and a Rib Eye steak (perfectly cooked). Fair prices, large selection of beers and a very kind staff!

We were wondering around amsterdam central and popped into a pub for a drink. The barman told us that he was a local and liked the food in this restaurant so we decided to go for dinner here. The food was fresh and tasty. The service was great and the atmosphere was relaxing. On a warm night get a nice... More

We turned up late but didn't want to call it a night. Service is a bit ditsy but just lock your drink orders down and keep at them if they forget anything. Kitchen was closed when we got there but it looked and smelt amazing. We tried booking the next night (called at 7pm for 830pm and they told us... More

The food was fantastic. Well presented and very tasty. They had a separate menu card for English speaking people who do not understand Dutch. At the rear of the restaurant was an open area like a beer garden, which made it pleasant to sit and which gave the restaurant a nice flair in the middle of Amsterdam. There were few... More

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Amsterdam! Service was friendly (and you can't experience this very often in Amsterdam), the interior of the restaurant and its inside terrace was cute and food exceptional! We got a starter on the house. This consisted of olives, fresh bread and aioli. Afterwards we have ordered mussels, chicken pot and french... More

As most others say, it's a friendly experience and the kitchen knows what it is doing. Highly recommended for comfort food.

So pleased we popped in earlier in the day to reserve. We arrived at 7 to find ours was the only unoccupied table. And for very good reason. Lovely friendly staff; I think we were the only non-Dutch, and the waitress took the time to translate the specials board for us and make us feel really welcome. Our youngest helped... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
