Cosy cafe with English menus offering local food. The Ossenworst wasn't at all what I expected (more terrine than sausage) but nice anyway. Spectacular selection of bottled beers!

This bar became 'our local' for the 4 nights we were in Amsterdam. The owner was so friendly, as was his staff. We were there til close (3 am) on our first night! We met some great people, and enjoyed being a local!

Came here to eat with family. The food menu was limited and a lot of items were finished but the steak we had was fantastic. The beer selection was good and prices were in line with where you'd expect. Would recommend.

We stopped off here after a movie. 2 rounds of drinks. Really enjoyed being here. Would recommend. Good choice of beers. An international crowd as opposed to the Dutch.

The area is known for quirky and upmarket and its a little difficult to find something decent and not overpriced . This is an unfussy bar in the 9 streets which has a few seats outside and a decent beer menu both bottled and draught....More
