Desperate and hungry for a bite to eat - we found this restaurant on trip advisor and sought it out. Wolfed-down the most delicious coq au vin and rosé to complete the meal. Delicious, homely authentic French food in a wonderful rustic setting. Other tables around us seemed to be enjoying their specialty of smoked muscles which looked and smelled... More

Ate here in early December with some Dutch friends who recommended the place. Fantastic location just off Dam Square down a side street. Great food on the menu and not extortionately priced like much of Amsterdam. Really friendly and welcoming staff, knowlegeable about the food and the menu and of course the wine. We had a fabulous meal, was around... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam with the food, atmosphere and wine list being brilliant. The owners were really welcoming and guided us through an excellent menu helping us to choose a really good wine. All the courses were perfectly prepared simple but excellent food. It was so good that the following day we went out of... More

An excellent meal, well-cooked specials of the day. Good quality, reasonably-priced carafes of house wine (one red and one white). Friendly waitress/owner. Ten steps from Dam Square, five steps from our hotel. And a great view of the head shop opposite. What more could one ask for?! Definitely one to return to next time in Amsterdam.

We had lunch here on a day trip to Amsterdam. Convenient location for the sights, good choice of reasonably priced food and pleasant staff. The galette with goats cheese was excellent. Highly recommend this bar/cafe and would go back if I returned to Amsterdam.

I ate here twice in a week, with two separate parties and both were very enjoyable meals. It's a family run restaurant with a straight forward classic French menu and a few specials on the blackboard. Dishes run from moules (as a starter or a main) through to rabbit, lamb, fish, etc. Decent and fair priced wine list. Good portions... More

My wife and I enjoyed a good quality lunch today in this relaxed cafe/restaurant very close to the bustle of Dam Square. We had Galette Chèvre with a nice wine and a dark and blond beer. Good value and very friendly service.

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, it is small, quaint, and serves home-cooked meals. It literally sits maybe 5 tables. Nothing fancy, but warm, friendly environment and good food. Pricing is normal for Amsterdam. Beers on tap and liquor available. Would go back.

This place markets itself as a casual French bistro. And it is exactly that. And what's more it is a very nice one too. I went there solo on a Friday night and was made to feel immediately welcome. I was given an excellent carafe of red wine and settled into my menu, ordering the steak, with pepper sauce. It... More
