This is a small restaurant which looks like it's been converted from somebody's front room. A cosy, homely feel to it, they don't take reservations but within 30 mins of opening it was full and queues had formed outside. 'nuff said. It seemed to attract...More

We knew it was a popular restaurant so arrived just before 8.30pm closing time to avoid the queue. We were greeted and seated by the boss and really enjoyed our meal. We ordered beef stew and beer chick which were both really yummy.

This meal was fabulous and reasonable priced by Amsterdam standards. (11-15 euros) Great Dutch food, schnitzel, stewed meats and the awesome potatoes of course. Busy but great service. Worth the wait if you have to!

Amsterdam is such a cosmopolitan city that it’s actually difficult to find Dutch food. This was a gem of a find, but we did have to do some research on where it was. It’s the ground floor of a house that’s been converted. The food...More

Depending on when you're visiting the restaurant can be quite busy as to the lack of space and the crowd the restaurant brings. Even though we had to stand in a queue very awkwardly pretty much in the middle where people bump into you, the...More

So sorry, I can't remember. I am sure though that I had a vegetarian option on one of our visits.
