“Must be an 'in' place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

A Dutch member of our who knew Amsterdam team organised a dinner here so it must have a good reputation - very good for a group, we all had a good dinner with drinks and coffee, although I am sorry to say I cannot remember what any of us ate!.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I was in Amsterdam over the weekend with my boyfriend and we were so hungry we asked the taxi driver to recommend us somewhere, so he took us to De Knijp and it was absolutely amazing. The food came quickly, staff were so friendly and the food was so so good. It's a nice cosy intimate restaurant and I would highly recommend, very affordable too.

“Great place to eat in Museum District”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is a good value for your money place. Not fancy but traditional Dutch interior. Service good. Food good. We went after 8 and there was lots of room. It stays open really late so you can go there after a concert at the Concertgbouw which is nearby. It is usually packed on concert nights but after 8 everyone is gone. We went once and then went back because we liked it so much. Look for Pete the waiter and tell him we recommended him and De Knijp as promised.
