Lucky, it’s summer in Amsterdam. So in the evening we could sit on the terrace. Nachos and fries were on the menu, and soft drinks. The combination is great, the staff is nice too.

Had a quick lunch at 11am. Great service and fantastic meal. Really enjoyed spicy prawns, a best in Europe. All good but disappointed with desert as I couldn't get chocolate mousse neither chocolate eclair. Otherwise it was an awesome experience

I found this whilst wandering the streets of Amsterdam. Everything I wanted. Nice atmosphere, classical music, lovely decaf latte and a breakfast of Greek yoghurt fruit and granola. Perfect!

Had the Dutch burger, it was ok - coming from a Texan that is saying something. It was a lot of food lol so recommend only getting it if you’re hungry. It’s pricey too, but you can easily share for two to justify. Staff is...More

Supposed to be a good lunch. Waited 45 min and never got our food. The “waitress” also got our drink order wrong. Gentlemen next to us had same problem. Poor service.

Just across the way from our hotel. We had lunch here a couple of times. We sat inside once, and out in the sunshine by the canal another time. A bit windy, but we really wanted to sit in the sun! Food was tasty, service...More
