“Improving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Been there last week during their bowling disco on saturday. Had no problems with the bowling, I was told they were closed for renovation a few weeks before, so maybe they read one of the comments on here. (or maybe the translation is bad?)

We didn't have any food, but we had a bunch of drinks. It's pricy, but everything in Amsterdam is. The staff was okay, they could pretent to like their jobs more. The music was good, the DJ seemed to enjoy it.

They do need to do something with the bathrooms, not really dirty, but reallt far from clean.

Overall, we had fun, and that was important for us.

“Horrible service at the restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

I just want to review the restaurant annexed, not the actual bowling facility that is quite alright. You cannot have only one waiter in the whole venue, have your guest wait forever to get their food, bring cold food to several people and take the luxury to say that the huge delay is our fault because another person added himself later to the table; it is just a stupid excuse. Will go again maybe for bowling, surely not anymore for eating.

“Expensive, no friendly staff and not clean at all”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011 via mobile

I went bowling here and I was really surprised by the high rates they charged me.

It was also not clean at all and the staff wasn't friendly, they just don't seem to care.

The problem is that there are just a few bowling centre in Amsterdam.
