“Good value for excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We came across this cafe bar when walking from our hotel and how pleased we were to discover it. The food was superb, we had steaks which were excellent ( had eat in one of the many Argentenian steak restuarants in Amsterdam another night and the quality of the steaks here was much superior) and the lamb stew which was fantastic. Our compliments to the chef. The meal was very reasonable as were the drinks. Staff were very helpful and it was obvious that this cafe is a favourite with locals, which is obvioulsy a good recommendation. So if you are in the area it is worth a visit

“Neighborhood cafe popular with locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

This is a cosy cafe frequented by locals. The food is good but basic. Prices very reasonable. Service and other guests are very friendly. The couple at the next table struck up a conversation with us and gave us tips on things to see in the city.

“Cosy café in the heart of historic Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

The Captein & Co is a cosy little café, a stone's throw from the action in the heart of historic Amsterdam.

Family run, with friendly staff, the food is good, with fresh specials every day.

When the sun's out, it's lovely to sit on the terrace, which faces onto the canals of Kromme Waal and Oude Waal.

Highly recommended!
