We stayed there for a drink and small food in the evening. The atmosphere is stunning and will take you a century back. There is a live parrot at the bar! It's unusual and fun, but started to be little bit distracting when he was...More

Liked the choice on the menu so decided to eat in here. Quick and friendly service. Food was cooked in an open kitchen. Was very happy with the quality and the price of the food. Would definitely return in the future.

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
