“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This a smallish restaurant in a street full of them and you have to run the gauntlet of people trying to entice you into their places.

We received a friendly welcome and were shown to a table outside which was nice on a very warm evening. There is an extensive menu and competively priced. The service in general was very good & helpful.

We enjoyed our meal here but have to say we had better during our trip. We didn't think the portions were as large as previously claimed and the lamb I had was a little overcooked for my taste. But overall it was good and value for money.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We found this restaurant using trip advisor. It was quite small and we found two seats at the bar. I got the special which was chicken on top of pesto and came with a salad. It was a ton of food and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly too.

“Great food if you have a big appetite ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Regular visitors to Amsterdam and always visit s & s.
staff friendly and welcoming. Always busy while most around are empty.
A little bit cramped for room but the food is great.
Only tackle the ribs if you are particularly hungry. I struggle to finish which is unusual for me!

“Good food, fair price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

A nice small restaurant with a good service. Don't miss it is you are nearby Leidseplein square. A meat or fish main-course you won't regret. My favorite spare ribs and boiled mussels.

“Great Dutch food at a great price - a good alternative the flashing bar and restaurants around this area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We wanted to try some traditional dutch food - not really knowing what this what. The reviews looked good and this restaurant didn't have flashing lights or someone hounding us to go in. It was busy with both tourists and locals.
The food was delicious - dutch pea soups and probably the best beef capaccio I have ever had to start. Followed by the dutch beef steak and the house burger - both great options. We finished off with the apple pie which we had wanted to try earlir in the day - like an apple cakeif you've not tried it.
The waiter and waitress were delightful, offering advice and recommendations.
If you like your wine - be warned there is 2 choies for white and 2 red. Luckily the savvy B we chose was a good option for us - but if you are fussy you may be disappointed witht the lack of choice.
We would eat here if we revisited the A'dam in the future. Highly recommended.
