“Mix of Cafe and Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

The word "Cafe"is in the name, an indication for a very informal atmosphere. Opens at 10 a.m.; serves your morning coffee, but also lunches and dinners. It's a kind of place where you meet friends and after while decide to stay for something to eat. We had dinner: On the menu 5 starters, 5 mains and 4 desserts. Nice looking options, but none we were really excited about. As starter we both took the Mackerel tartar. Tasted good, but was too cold.
As mains we had Venison with beetroots and mash, very good. Prices are a bit high for this mix of cafe/restauant and when a lot of tables are occupied it's a bit noisy due to the bad acoustics. Service is good. We paid 80 Euro for two, including starters, mains, a bottle of wine and coffee. All in all, no regrets, but there is some room for improvement.

“Fine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

A friend and I went here after work - with the location and style clearly the customers they are trying to attract. Everything about the restaurant was 'fine'. Meal was carbohydrate heavy and vegetable light and we would prefer the other way around. Probably better for burger, chips and beer with a group of friends than dinner with friends.

“A much welcomed addition to the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Great location, and a much needed addition to the area around Amstel Station. Rather small lunch menu but the food is really tasty. I'll be going back!
