“Good neighborhood restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

On a nice day you can sit outside at a table right beside the Prinsengracht. The restaurant features a good selection of local beers and a menu that includes Indonesian style chicken in a peanut sauce, sole lightly friend, and sirloin steak with a choice of three different sauces. Most meals come with a big paper cone of fries and fresh veggies that are perfectly prepared. Prices are reasonable and service attentive.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had an evening 3 course meal here for 24 euro's each ,food was wonderful and service very good,can not fault in any way,definitely worth a try if your in the area,may not be suitable for anyone with walking difficulty's as toilet's are down a very tight spiral staircase and after a few beer's may even prove a little challenging for the able bodied.....lol

“You'll visit here more than once”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Gaper became our local whilst we were in Amsterdam for four days. We loved the service, the staff, the Leffe beer and the food was good. We had lunch twice, an evening meal twice and went there for after dinner drinks twice. We loved it. The best food on the evening menu is the steak and chips with Bearnaise sauce. The lunchtime menu serves sandwiches, burgers, Dutch pea and ham soup and it's all tasty. The large portion of chips served with Aioli are really good. The apple cake is very nice at Gaper. We tried the Malbec wine which was good, drank quite a few draft Leffe and had Lavazza espressos which come with a chocolate covered nut. Great place, great people where we felt immediately at home. They don't have English newspapers by the way.

“Friendly service and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We spent a few hours relaxing here on a snowy afternoon. We enjoyed some delicious, well priced food and a few drinks. The nachos and BLTC were great and the apple pie was scrumptious. The service was friendly and efficient. A great location, close to the Jordaan.

“Ok food. Rude staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

My sandwich was nice. A little overpriced for what it was though and the lady that served us was terribly rude when we asked for her to call us a taxi.
