During a visit to Amsterdam with a friend, we came across the Happy Bull and we were really happy. The burgers are amazing with excellent range of sides and beers to go with your burger of choice. Best onion rings I ever had.

Have been here once before and had to come back - this place is amazing. Hamburgers are delicious. They only have one vegetarian alternative but that burger is amazing and well worth its price. The fries are also amazing.

The Happy Bull is a burger restaurant located in Amsterdam South, near end of the Vondel park by the Hoofddorpplein. We specialize in hamburgers and milkshakes. Our love and passion for high quality food has quickly earned us the reputation of serving the best burgers and milkshakes in Amsterdam! To ensure our customers get the best quality and freshness, we prepare our food daily. Our hamburgers are made from high quality steak meat that we grind ourselves in house. And our rich and tasty milkshakes are made from Italian ice cream, imported from Venice. Additionally, we recommend you try some of our other delicious options, like homemade fries, chili con carne, nachos with homemade guacamole. We have gluten free and vegetarian options as well. Please stay tuned in to hear out what's going on. We frequently update our menu and services.
