pretty nice beef and average sandwich

Visited Poco Loco spontaneously, when we were looking for other planned place, but totally lost between Amsterdam channels. We had chosen Poco club sandwich (mostly bacon, onion, egg, cheese, salad) and beef tenderloin with onions, paprika, mushrooms and fries. Well, on the one hand the beef was... read more

Try their scrambled eggs with bacon, et al for breakfast - its delicious. Located close to many dining options offering some delicious food and a good selection of alcohol!

Visited this place purely on the overall good score from trip advisor, and we definitely agree with the lesser reviews posted. Tapas were bland and not good, service was friendly but we didnt get the free bread everyone else is mentioning here. I also ordered the 7-tapas sampler but they only brought me the 6 piece (which was fine since... More

Had a really disappointing meal here. We'd read the good reviews and thought we'd give it a go, and at first all was promising! It had a great vibe, a free table even though we hadn't booked, and the waitress was very friendly. We ordered drinks but when mine arrived it definitely didn't taste like what I asked for...then some... More

Lovely smiley lady greeted us and made us feel very welcome. Just stopped for a bite to eat for breakfast, limited menu - more toasties than pastries but settled for yogurt and fruit which was a massive portion for all 3 of us to share! Orange juice freshly squeezed - Wonderful!

The ambience in this restaurant is lovely, its quite dark, warm and cosy and the presence of the cat adds to the homely feel. We were given free bread at the start of the meal which was delicious. I had the fajitas for the main course which came with an enormous selection of fillings including beef and chicken, peppers and... More

Good service and the food was outstanding - excellent tapas selection. Pretty good location as well - close to the Red Light District but outside of it so it's quiet.

Excellent little bar to chill out in to escape the night time crowds and madness of the red light district for a bit. Stopped here a couple of times for a few drinks. Nice view out the front, plenty of people walking past to People watch if that's your thing hahahaha. Friendly staff and decent beers to choose from. Top... More
