We stopped here for a snack lunch and drink and to watch the world go by. We had some local croquettes, a toastie and fries (which were great!). Pleasant service and lovely to sit by the canal and watch the boats pass by.

Stopped here when we had time to kill before a late flight home. It's off the beaten track a bit which adds to its charm. We had a very enjoyable few hours enjoying some food and drink. Service was much better than Dutch standard; our waitress was quick to help and advise on food. The food itself was good simple... More

Just round the corner from the rip-off Red Light district this bar/cafe offers friendly service, good food and a great range of beer. They have space to sit by the canal or inside where it's warm.

We had a table overlooking the canal, which was very nice as the weather was sunny and warm, the food was of good quality and reasonably priced for Amsterdam, the ambience was just what we were looking for. Be warned they only take CASH!

Food was really delicious and affordable. Nice staff! We'll be back. We can recommend this place to whomever is looking for an affordable but good meal. We had the burger, tagliatelle, the wrap and the croquettes. Everthing was perfect.

Up for some good steak, spare ribs or sateh? Check this place in the heart of Amsterdam. Can be very busy. It's not that big. Nice terrace outside (little sun though).

If you want a basic meal at a basic price, this is the place. Tonight my group of friends had tomato soup followed by fish by some and spareribs by others - no complaints. House wine at 10-12 euros was drinkable. Coffee was good.

Beautiful setting, right next to a canal on a quiet side street with very little motorized traffic. Tables and chairs are a bit on the simple side. But the great Bitterbalen and the perfectly temperatured beer makes up for that Service is friendly and efficient as in most places in Amsterdam.

A really good and young place, with good food for good prices, and a nice happy atmosphere. Really suggested to all people that want to drink a good bier and eat something simple.

Went there last week a couple of times. Great food and great bar staff apart from one older barmaid who would do better working in an undertakers.
