I came back after a walk at the Vondelpark. As it was quite cold, I decided to have a short hot drink and to eat something. This place is just outside the park, offer a quick service and good quality apple cake. Together with the hot fresh mint tea, it was a good refreshing stop. The only thing is that... More

It has a good location, but sadly its understaffed, which leads to poor customer service and food. I have eaten there few times due to the location and convenience, but each time has been poor. Unless more attention will be given to running this properly and have a consistent chef, then it could be something quite nice.

We had dinner here Tuesday night for the special burger night and the food was good but the service very slow... We had to wait almost an hour to get 2 burgers which is unfortunate.

We live very close to this café and had never been here for food before, only for drinks (they have a really nice variety of beers). Unfortunately it was a terrible experience and we probably won't be returning considering the other options in the area. It was a Friday night and admittedly quite busy, however the fries were obviously re-heated,... More

Thank you for taking the time to place a review on Tripadviser. I would like to appoligize for what happened. You are right that there has to be a manager on an evening like this.

I love very close to this pub and go often here. It's not very crowded, the terrace is big and you'll find good food and drinks.

Great spot on the edge of Vondelpark. I have been here many times and it's great for a lunch time snack. Lots of beers and comfort food. Recommended.

On the other side of the Vondelpark is this nice restaurant at the corner. They have a great terrace, nice pub food and friendly staff. Good for a coffee and also for casual dinners.

After a walk in the Vondelpark, looking for a place to have a simple lunch. The interior is OK, nothing special. On a nice day it may be nice to sit outside and watch people go by. Service very friendly and the choice of food is limited but good. Also a place for the local people to get out of... More
