So glad we stumbled on this place. Superb cosy pub. Super, good value food, great collection of beers, great background music (jazz in the main) and Walter is the perfect host. Highly recommended.

This place was my favourite find on our recent trip to Amsterdam. It's cozy, inviting, charming and friendly in equal measure. The staff were super nice and, while we didn't eat here, the food looked very appetising. This place is perfect for a lunchtime drink...More

A wonderful location near to the waterlooplein metro station but more importantly in an area full of character. Best experienced after dark, this little cafe/bar serves basic but tasty food at a reasonable place. The staff are extremely welcoming and it just feels like you...More

By far, my favourite cafe in Amsterdam. Clearly popular with locals and tourists alike. A warm welcome, with a great range of beers and spirits. Good food and snacks too!

Found this lovely little bar whilst strolling round town in the evening. Great location - great host - really relaxing we sat outside and and people watched whilst sipping on our drinks. Great beer selection too

Thank you for visiting:)

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
