We arrived there without any expectations, and we were surprised from the delicious food. All the dishes were perfect and the waiters were pleasant and lovely. Highly recommended :)

“Nice relaxing meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

As per previous reviews, we were not disappointed with this restaurant. We arrived at 8.30 and the pre-theatre diners had left. The place was quite quiet with only another four tables occupied. We shared a bruschetta starter which was excellent then had a salmon and steak dish. The house wine was very good and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

“Great neighborhood restaurant (but Museumplein neighborhood prices!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

My boyfriend and I have eaten at Knijp many times - and like it every time. The food is well done, the service super friendly, and the atmosphere laid-back. Perfect place for a good meal in the Museumplein neighborhood without securing a reservation ahead of time. But note that it's casual, pub-like atmosphere can be deceiving; the prices are not cheap and reflect the neighborhood. Expect between 18 and 23 Euros per main course.

“Weekend break Feb 14”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We had to make advance booking for this one as it has a healthy clientele from concert goers but our wait was well worth it. The atmosphere, the staff, the food not to mention wine & liqueurs were all excellent and made for a memorable experience. Another venue we won't miss if we can help it next time we are in this great city.
