Food is okay, not much difference compare with many other herring selling booths in AMS. The service was impressively rude. When asking for menu the owner just look at us and laughing arrogantly with his friend in shop, pointing the herring and said "this is...More

Amazing lunch and very cheap. Friendly owner took a while to find but worth the search to experience real Dutch food.

The herring sandwich was good but nothing to write home about. Cheap, but also small. This is a really small place and the smell from the fryer was a bit strong, so we just ate as we walked.

Came here couple of time during my stay in Amsterdam for lunch. We had herring and eels. They are fresh and tasty. The owner is super friendly. Would definitely go back there again the next time I am in Amsterdam.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and that is exactly what it was. Just three tables and few seats, but a very friendly owner and very tasty food. We tried herring, smoked salmon, smoked mackerel - simple and delicious.

Very nice experience. Dive into the local culture in this restaurant that is very cheap (3 euros a great sandwich) and talk to the guy. He is super friendly. Definitely worth the visit, multiple times.

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
