We cannot comment on the food, because we did not get to sample it. We made a reservation a week in advance and extra asked if we are allowed to take our small dog. We got a confirmation, got reminders, no mention of the dog....When we got at the restaurant after a long day in A'dam we were told that we cannot take the dog (we are not from Amsterdam so the dog travels with us). Unbelievably we were told that the restaurant had tried to contact us 4 times yet I did not have any missed calls either on my mobile or on my home phone (checked upon return). So some kind of dishonest excuse. I respect the policy of every restaurant or hotel to allow pets or not, I always ask if it is allowed or not. But common guys, you have a website - put the info there, read the reservation requests and do not mislead customers.More

We arrived as a group of 6 people, seating was very good and the atmosphere also really pleasant. The food when it arrived was really very good, the Half chicken in particular was succulent and served in its own juices, sides were very good as...well. Price wise, ok, probably inline with most nicer restaurants in Amsterdam, It isn't a cheap town!. The temperature inside the restaurant was almost unbearable at time of visit.More

Starters and main served at the same time “because they’re busy”. Returned then had rock hard chips to eat. Ordered drinks 4 times. Finally received drinks after finished eating but all 4 rounds on bill. Chicken is good but sides are awful. Didn’t wait around...to try dessert. Other tables were being asked to pay up and leave early because they needed tables. Heel slecht.More

This place was a great start to our short get away! I chose it for our first night in Amsterdam, coming from the USA, and being jet lagged, wanted something simple and comforting and near our hotel...found it! The roasted chicken was great, along with...the tenders and wings. Drinks were great as well. thank you.More

Loved this place! We got full chicken, 4 sides, and 2 ciders (€58) and it was a feast. The chicken itself was super tender, sitting in its own gravy. The flavour was great and it was perfect for two hungry chicken lovers. We had booked...which was good as it was completely full. The vibe is really nice too, buzzy but relaxing. 4/5 as the drinks were super pricey for bottles.More

After reading all the reviews, we were really looking forward to dining at this restaurant. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The atmosphere and staff were warm and welcoming, but we waited nearly an hour for our food. Turned out our server was waiting for my...husband to finish the whole basket of bread he ordered as an appetizer before bringing us our meal. We had to ask twice for her to bring it to us - he was not going to eat the entire basket - while we watched tables around us get served very quickly. Then, once our dinner finally came, the chicken was so salty I could barely eat it. Would not return to this restaurant.More

My partner and I came here on our last visit to Amsterdam three years ago in November 2019, just prior to Covid. It seemed appropriate to go again on our first trip back to the city since then. We were not disappointed. The food is...good (it’s chicken and chips basically) and the staff very friendly. The ambience is nice to especially for a busy city centre location. In fact, just as I remembered from three years ago. See you next time!More

The chicken & chips were really good, really enjoyed it. That was about it really. The sauces were tiny pots , the gravy was just water. The brunette waitress who seated us who seemed to be doing bar to was very friendly and helpful. The...blonde waitress serving our table didn't appear to want to be there and pretty rude. Refused tap water with no apology or explanation just' we don't do ' pretty shocked as this is definitely not legal in the UK to do. We didn't even get the bottled water we did ask for.. Guess we were expected to drink the warm one next to the candle. Had to check we didn't have it on the bill. Had to keep looking around or get up to get someone's attention. When the bill came it was slammed on the table . No thanks when we paid . When we left we said thanks and bye. All 4 staff members by the bar ignored our exit. Came before in 2019 and had a really good meal seated at the bar and had really good service by the bar staff hence making the effort to return. This time was a disappointment , will find somewhere that actually wants our business next time.More

We stopped in here for lunch on our first afternoon in Amsterdam. It was a blisteringly hot day and the restaurant unfortunately didn’t have air conditioning, but it was otherwise very modern and nicely decorated with very comfortable booths. As their name suggests they specialise...exclusively in chicken and they do it well. I went for the rotisserie half chilcken and fries, one of my friends went for the pulled chicken tacos and one for the chicken burger and fries, plus two cokes we paid about €50 euros in all so pretty good value. One thing that we were disappointed in, however, is that this was the only restaurant in our four day stay that declined to serve tap water. This is a very common issue in the Netherlands so don’t be surprised if this also happens to you. Bottled water is available for purchase and this is left on the tables to advertise. A small point but one that makes the difference between a four star review and a five. Would recommend apart from this if you’re looking for a filling comfort food meal in central Amsterdam.More

Chicken was dry and not particularly flavourful, restaurant was very quiet when we were in. Toilet door opens straight into restaurant which was strange, nothing special to be honest…
