“More than just a restaurant, it's an experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had a lovely evening in this popular Dutch restaurant. It is unpretentious in the extreme and very down-to-earth. The theme is really 'just like mother made' and it doesn't fall short on any level.
We had the comforting warm pea soup to start on a cool damp September evening... followed by two Dutch home cooking favourites, Suddervlees and Stamppot, with dessert to follow all washed down with beer.
Nice touches all round - like the wall bedecked with photos of diners' mothers which had been brought in by regulars, and the down to earth crockery, none of which matched... Brilliant. If I lived in Amsterdam I'd be eating here all the time - and my mother would be on the wall.

“Cozy with tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This eclectic looking place was packed to the hilt with locals. We wondered how the waitstaff could reach the tables. We had salad and a duck dish. Both were excellent. Wines were dirt cheap. An excellent price performer.

“My mum enjoyed it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Booking was easy even I don't speak Dutch. Quick respond from the restaurant.
This is a cosy restaurant and try to pay attention to details. I mentioned that it was my birthday that day and they even decorated my chair with colourful ribbon. High chair and baby changing is available in the restaurant.
My mum said this was the best meal that she ever had in Amsterdam! Mainly because they were not too salty after a few visits to other Dutch restaurants.
Waitress was friendly and attentive. Short walked to the tram station.

“Nothing is like moms food, but moeders provide you the concept of moms food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Don't forget to book, don't expect luxury and you will not be disapointed.
Honest and tasty food, ask the waiter for advice to try to adjust your choice (if you are not familiar with the food) to your taste.
