I have quickly become a regular here because of how they run their restaurant/bar. After two visits, the staff remembered my drink preferences, and they always try to accommodate me in the event I wasn't able to make a reservation. The exhibitions they have downstairs are a nice touch and make it a great place for dates, as you have a conversation starter built into the evening. Food is nothing special, I've had almost everything and would suggest the ox cheeks or chicken and chips above all, but the atmosphere and tasty drinks make up for the average food. As an Amsterdam local, I can tell you that finding a place with friendly staff is almost impossible, which is why this hotel bar has become my favorite!
