“Excellent bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This place is a real find as it serves excellent beers at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and it's full of locals so you can soak up the friendly dutch ambience inside or sit outside and watch the world go by. We use it as a base whenever we stay in Amsterdam. There's nothing to fault it.

“Nice place for a drink and a bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stopped here when we arrived in Amsterdam to get a bite. We had a nice lunch and a few drinks. I found the food to be good and the service to be good as well.

“Traditional bar with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Following a long walk we needed a drink and something to eat and decided to try this pub which turned out to be a good choice. The bar is a traditional old pub with a large selection of beers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The sandwiches are delicious and very good value compared to the majority of restaurants in Amsterdam which seem to be very expensive and poor value. We actually returned there the following day as it was so good.

“Friendly, lots of students”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A friendly cafe where you can go alone; there are plenty of students and a nice assortment of locals. Nothing pretentious, but the prices are reasonable, location is good, and wine is reasonably priced. A mainstay in Amsterdam. Great to meet people at since it is easy to find and centrally located.

“First lunch in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

After an overnight flight from the US and an hour spent wandering around Amsterdam, Cafe Stevens was just what we were looking for in a first meal. After fitting through the very narrow door, we found a homey little spot full of old wooden tables, candlelight and locals. We both had sandwiches -- one gorgonzola, one ham -- and beer, all for a very reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit.
