A very nice place ! Comfortable and conveniently located to the Heineken Experience. The thing I liked the best were the big comfortable lounge chairs which you could sink into after a long walk

My friend ordered the fish and chips only to find that the fish looked as if it was frozen before cooked. Considering theses a fresh fish market 150 meters away. The service was ok aswell nothing...

The guiness was great, the meals were tasty, only if you have to hurry up, don't choose this, the service is a bit slow.

My boyfriend and I visited O'Donnells on a few occasions during our stay in Amsterdam and really enjoyed the atmosphere and feel of this pub. During our first visit we enjoyed drinks outside whilst we watched the world go by. We also ate breakfast here and was impressed with the quality of food and customer service. This pub is well...

I tend to prefer local pubs selling local beer. Walking round this area fromc my Museum Quarter hotel I didn't really fancy the local pubs selling unlocal beer.... why not?.... so I ended back at O'Donnell's. They sell Kilkenny so why not? Indeed! Decent place to sit and watch. Reasonable service, pleasant relaxed garcons with no hassle to buy anything,... More

Rude floor staff.... It's meant to be an Irish bar....replace floor staff with people who want and care to work there. Good points: location watching sports

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
