We thought this looked nice and sat down for a drink and a snack. The staff were unhelpful, the snack was awful, and the beer was overpriced

We ended up stopping because of the cute name. Great service, great cocktails and reasonable prices! Awesome Moscow mule and Dark n Stormy. Didn't eat but great snack menu. Free wifi, too!

I enjoyed this place a lot, sitting outside having dinner and a glass of wine, while watching the locals riding their bikes and tourist gathering at the plaza across the street, it was charming and picturesque. It's a fun place to stop by and have a drink...or two and meet local people.

We'd walked around looking for somewhere on a busy Saturday night and this is the only place we could get a table. It was extremely busy and there was a short wait considering the amount of people sat inside and outside the cafe. The cocktails were a reasonable price and tasted great, they came with fresh fruit garnish.

Quite cheap compared to most places in that area. They even have grolsch on tap a change from all the Heineken! The cocktails are also a good price. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed!

I'm going to sound like I have a booze problem here but every cocktail I ordered and tasted, felt like it was watered down and not enough booze. The staff didn't seem to care and why should they as the place was banging, with people not complaining about the lack of ale. Nice pub though

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
