Had a menu. Starter, a try out of 3 dishes was very good. Than a rib-eye. The rib-eye was cold and not tasty at all. Did not try the desert but took a cup a coffee, during which I had an eye-contact with a mouse.

Luden Cafe is a few doors down from Dante Kitchen & Bar (see review) and whereas we’d enjoyed the service and the food on Singel, Luden failed to deliver. The service was slow, even for tourist traps in Amsterdam. The burger had all the trimmings...More

Craved a burger, whilst strolling around Amsterdam. Stumbled over this restaurant, so decided to return for tea. Great quality cheese burger , plenty of flavour and came with chips. We eat everything! It was so appreciated, great place, would return.

Enjoyable enough food (a burger for me and seabass for my Dad), and the manager was charming and friendly upon arrival and throughout. Burger was very tasty but could have been more refined. Chips lovely. The sea bass was also good and well presented. A...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
