Popped in for a pre-dinner drink and was impressed by the selection of beers on tap, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the ambience of the place. I didn't dine here, but the menu looked interesting and shall come back on my next visit.

We stumble upon this cosy but busy venue located in one of amsterdam's more relaxed quarters. Even if they didn't have any vegan options for me their staff was extremely helpful and made me an excellent version of the house salad including freshly cooked vegetables. My friends was also happy with the pizza and vegetarian pasta. Even though they're really... More

Dear god, be careful what you order! Not because it's not amazing because it really is, but because their portions are so generous. We had nachos, fondue and burgers followed by chocolate fondue and crepe to share: we were lifted out by crane! Lovely surroundings, sweet waitresses and only a slight delay for service but they were unsurprisingly busy! Go!... More

A group of 8 of us had dinner outside at the beginning of September and had such a great time. The food was excellent, good atmosphere and the service outstanding. The owner has a great sense of humour and that added to making it a very memorable and enjoyable night...thank you Chocolate Bar!!!

Stopped here for breakfast while exploring Amsterdam. The service was good and the food was lovely, I had the avocado scrambled eggs, which were top notch. Very good food and quality for the price. I'd recommend.

Really good service here, comfortable outdoor seating. Soft drinks slightly overpriced, though. Local Zatte beer recommended!

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
