“Fantastic (and cheap) Herring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

This was a great little local spot tucked away on a small side street near Dam Square. It was a great place to try Dutch style Herring. There are only two small tables and the food was fantastic. The man working the counter was so nice and recommended the best way to eat the Herring. I had it raw in pieces with onions and pickles. It was soooooooo delicious. I definitely recommend stopping in there for lunch.

“Something Dutch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were desperate to try Herring in Amsterdam, by accident we came across this restuarant, down a small alley in the centre of Amsterdam. The restuarant is very quaint, with one person running it, and locals pop by to have coffee, so it feels authentic. The food was excellent, and there are other types of seafood available, and the drinks were affordable. We loved it so much, we ate there twice while in Amsterdam.
