“Cosy, relaxed, and generous portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Although we had a bit of a walk from the centre of Amsterdam to find this place, it was definitely worth it. It was a very informal and relaxed atmosphere, with mismatched tables and chairs, but the service was friendly and helpful, and the food was lovely, with very generous portions. You can see the food being cooked and could tell that everything was prepared to order, so although it took a little while our food was fresh and tasty.

“It's cheap and easy and healthy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Yeah it's a weird place and that's why it's good. Those bad reviews were from folks who just didn't understand. It's a studenty vibe but I like the food, it's cooked with care. It's cheap so the complaints aren't valid. ... is not the ritz.

“Very good, a bit odd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Very nice food and service, food like vegetarian home cooking, from the outside looks a bit from but appearances can be deceiving. Very cheap was around €90 for four people including drinks.
