Called in after passing by and seeing the notice for Sunday Jazz. Delightful cosy ambience, and excellent jazz trio playing when we were there. Just had snacks so can't comment on the food but based on our initial experience we'll return and try the menu....More

We Stopped in here for a pint as the cosy atmosphere and live jazz caught our eye. Absolute pleasure! The waitress was so friendly and the musicians playing in the corner were brilliant. Lovely atmosphere. Will definitely stop by again before we leave.

Popped in for a quick dinner. The décor was atmospherically dark, with a view of the canal. There was the option to sit outside, also. The staff were helpful and polite. Menu was quite limited, but the food was enjoyable. Price was average.

This is like a great local pub but with a great Dutch vibe. Looking around from either the outside tables or cozy interior, there's great views. The Prinsengracht Canal, the classic Dutch architecture and the ubiquitous bicycles. Friendly staff do a great job serving simple...More
