English spoken

Good western food/snacks here -sandwiches or hot food, coffee/tea. More westerners here and a few Mongolians that can speak English better than other places. Just off the main road and up some steps so can see the traffic view down below.

After 7 weeks in Mongolia coming in by the Russian border to Bayan Olgii we eaten almost everywhere on the road to UB. We did visit a few restaurants / Cafe's in the center of UB where tourist talk about or have a name, Cafe Amsterdam was the one where the coffee was okay, but do not have no idea... More

went for lunch and think staff must have been hung over from Nadam! Took our orders for 4 of us and over an hour we had to go back and ask what had happened. Eventually we gave up as we had to go, but wrong drinks wrong dishes and two of us without a meal!

Although it was recommended on guidebooks, we expected much better. The iced coffee was diluted. Couldn't drink it. We ordered muesli for breakfast and for the price you are paying it was "measly".

The panini was good, the drinks also. Everything was clean, service was prompt, and the location is central. They have wifi. What's not to like? Their prices are inexpensive for the States but definitely are not cheap for Mongolia, but if you're very cheap, you shouldn't be hanging out in cafes that cater to ex-pats.

We decided on Cafe Amsterdam after a grueling 4+ hours of milling around gift hunting at the State Department Store close by. Wasn't very hungry so food wasn't on our minds. We really wanted cold draught beers and they didn't disappoint. The service was pretty good and friendly. The outdoor patio is great to catch some rays and people watch.... More

Nice place to crash on the terrace after a day in the city or after some weeks in the country side! Although its's a place were you will find a lot of other tourists, it's one of the best places in down town UB. Loved the terrace!

Cafe Amsterdam is a great place for breakfast or a tea/coffee. They do a full English breakfast which is really nice and others raved about the ability to get a good cup of coffee. It's a popular place with tourists.

We found this place as part of a tour service and the food served was appallingly sad and soggy. Coffee is equally as bad. Only thing I can say positive about this place is the location, but even then I will never go back to over pay for horrible service.

If they could understand some english, it would be a nice place to have breakfast, if you have plenty of time (service is unbelievable slow).
