My friends and I stopped into this place as one of the first places on our night out on the town. We grabbed a small table and had some beers. Some of us went to the bar side also. This place can get pretty busy like most places in Amsterdam as the night goes on, but if you can get... More

Perhaps the place looks better when full of people - it is tatty, messy all over. But, who cares about that sort of stuff, when in good company? Untill your coffee arrives. In best case, they reused yesterdays grindings, in the worst case... don't want to think. If the floor had been cleaner you could think they'd used that water... More

I happened upon this little cafe/bar on my first day in Amsterdam. Sampled some wonderful beers with the help of a friendly barman and had a few local bar snacks. 4 days later I popped back in for beer and dinner. So delicious, still the same friendly service and lots of new beers. What more do you want????!!! Check this... More

nice place with old decoration and very comfortable chairs. If you are tired to walk around, Cafe Stevens is the one of the best place to sit and take rest for a while. We went there before noon for cofee. It's not crowded place except weekends.

We visited this pub a couple of times, it's very central and near the train station. There's a nice pub atmosphere and a buzz, the service is excellent and it's not too noisy so we were able to actually have conversations. The selection of snacks is quite good, with the bitterballen being a highlight. Would definitely visit again when in... More

For lunch this is a great spot on the Nieuwmarkt. Café Stevens is a typical Dutch cafe where locals and tourists mingle. The lunch was really nice: the hamburger and the cheese sandwich taste delicious. And also good to know: friendly staff!

Always a great time at Stevens! Nice staff, great place to hang out. Between a lot of restaurants and other great bars. At the Nieuwmarkt, near Cental Station and the famous Red Light District.

We popped in here yesterday for lunch. The place was packed which is always a good sign. I had a lovely sandwich with fries and my husband had an omlette and fries. The service was good and the food very fresh and piping hot. Well worth a visit.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
