Food really nice, good outdoor courtyard but slow (although friendly) service

We stopped here for a late lunch and went out the back into the open air courtyard. It has canal frontage seating, indoor seating and then the courtyard. The food was really good, I had a fish and couscous salad and the coffee was also really good. The service was however slow. The staff were... read more

We visited this restaurant twice because we enjoyed the experience so much. Luckily, we managed to secure a canal-side table, which added to the convivial ambiance. The food was excellent - lamb chops can be highly recommended. We had a brilliant waiter who was on task and friendly. Our food arrived promptly and was of a very good quality. The... More

Left outside for 45 min with no service at all. No apology when we complained. Won't be back. Shame because it's a lovely spot on the canal and food options looked quite good.

First, I understand why some might be frustrated if you have other places to go, but if you want to watch interesting people--give this place a try. If you are inside and not sitting outside, sit near the stairs to the second floor and watch the parade of people. In regard to the food, I had an excellent plate of... More

This cafe restaurant is bright and modern and has lots of space inside, unlike many of Amsterdam's restaurants. The atmosphere on Sunday lunchtime was cosy and welcoming. We really liked it.

Nice location, very friendly staff. Limited menu with fine quality food. Excellent Illy coffee. Relax music, good WiFi. Ideal for coffee & cake or a salad.

Walem is the neighbouring restaurant to Morlang and their atmospheres are, if not identical, at least very close to the same. This is not a bad thing. The service is a little bit slow, but their burgers are worth the wait. We never got the chance to sample the rest of the menu, but if it's comparable to their handywork... More
