We will remember this restaurant for a long time for it's nice view of the Canals, its remarkably friendly staff, and it goes without saying that our two meals were outstanding.

We had a wonderful sandwich made with big slices of amazing bread. It really made the sandwich. The Amstel on draft wasn't bad either!

Comfortable and friendly “local”. Good sandwiches and beer, or try mint tea. House cat might be lounging on your table...nobody minds.

I have visited this bar many times. I like it both inside and out. Out especially as it’s a great place to people watch from whilst enjoying a nice relaxing drink. I would recommend visiting it. No large groups though please as I don’t want...More

We had an extremely disappointing dinner. Hamburgers that was some type of supermarket half fabricate from the freezer almost not cooked. Service was mostly invisible, and when visible quite unfriendly. If in Amsterdam, skip this place!

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
