We came here twice yesterday as we loved the ambience and oldy style. The food looked awesome. We had a few beers and listened to the great music that was being played by staff. Very friendly and fun staff.

Reasonably priced food, good selection & large servings. Great spot just of Rokin, you can watch the canal boats pass if your not interested in people watching. There is indoor seating, but didn't look, if its raining.

We weren't expecting much. We went in off street. But ended was very good food for lunch. We got pulled pork, steak sandwich, club and chicken on skewers. All good and reasonably priced. Very tasty buns and more meat than most restaurants in Amsterdam.

I was here with my friends while visiting Amsterdam. The location is very nice and the service good. The food is very tasty and it is coming in huge portion. We paid 60 euro in 4 width drinks.

Given that the cafe is near the university, it is not surprising that you get a good meal at a reasonable price. The staff are courteous and at the same time professional. I have stopped here a number of times over the past ten years and it never disappoints. On a nice day, get there early for an outdoor seat... More

Got the burger with fries and salad (which was coleslaw with raisins I used as topping for the burger). Twelve euros altogether but definitely above average burger and fries.

A typical Amsterdam atmosphere and not fancy at all, but the food is very good. I'm sure I will recommend this place to my friends.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
