“The typical Dutch Kitchen - Just the way my mother cooked it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you want to know what the Dutch eat at home, you should try this restaurant! Here, you can eat everything my mother used to make when I was young and it tasts just the same (or sometimes even better). Try the "runderlap" or the "gehaktbak"; you will love it. It is one of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam. And it is very good value for your money.

“Good, solid Dutch food at a very reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Nothing fancy here, and you might end up sharing a table with some locals if the space is tight. They close at 8pm, so go early. Off the beaten track but the perfect kind of meal for a cold January evening.

“Enjoy a typical Dutch dinner among locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Hap-Hmm is a treat, even for Dutch residents. The restaurant serves great and honest food for a very friendly price (the main courses start at €7,50).

I've had dinner here for a couple of times and the quality of the food is a constant factor. It is not possible to make a reservation and since it is always crowded, it's best to visit with a small group of people. If you get here around 17:30 - 18:00 you will not have to wait for a very long time, the restaurant is closed on saturday and sunday.

Tip: try the "Boterzachte Runderlap"

“Dutch comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We went to Hap-Hmm based on the recommendation of our landlord. It's one of his favorites in the neighborhood and where he turns to remember his mom's cooking. It's a popular place among locals. The food is simple, but delicious. The service is very friendly and fast. The prices are an oddity for Amsterdam - it is quite inexpensive. Great value, good food and a great place to taste Dutch food away from the typical tourist traps.
