“Amazingly good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I don't know if these are really the best fries in Amsterdam, but I'm pretty sure they were the best I had when I was there.
The prices might seem a bit high but it's worth it, because these fries taste absolutely amazing and they're just addicting. Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside... I think I burned my tongue several times since I couldn't wait for them to cool a bit. The sauces are also really good, I had the mayo and curry, and they both went very well with the fries.
So, if you have some time and want to have a good snack in Amsterdam, I suggest you visit this place! It might be slightly crowded, though, since it is very popular.

“BEST CHIPS EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I'm not a huge fan of chips, but these were definitely worth queuing for! You can choose from 3 difference sizes and a whole range of toppings! We even went back to get more.

“The Spot for Fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I had this idea that in Amsterdam there would be a frites shop on every corner with an endless variety of sauces. Apparently not- this is really the only one that has variety beyond the sauces you will get at Febo. My favorite so far is green peppercorn.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Not sure what all the fuss is about, pretty average chips in all honesty. Certainly not worth making a detour to visit

“Very good fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Very good fries and a huge selection of sauces.
The service is very fast (but friendly).
If I have to be entirely honest I've eaten fries in other places in Amsterdam and they were as delicious but I guess that if you want to experiment with sauces this is the place for you!
No seating
