When we arrived late one night and the bar was open and the kitchen was closed the staff went off and brought us back a snack. They did not have to but they did. Very helpful and friendly.

Had a bottle of wine with two main courses outside in February thanks to heaters. The place of the bar is in good neighborhood and it is far from being a touristic place.

Stopped by while in Amsterdam for a spot of lunch, wasn't sure as it was empty but thought we would give it a try. A warm welcome from the staff, inside is very like a poker club feel and a relaxing setting. The service was great and the food was also good value for money and very nice all considered.... More

A short walk over the bridge from the Rijksmuseum, my wife and I had an enjoyable lunch sitting outdoors on a beautiful October day. Our server, Leon, was attentive and courteous, even though it appeared he was taking care of many tables.

This restaurant might be particularly for drinks, so there were not many choices of food on the menu. I arrived at nearly 2:00pm. I could pick a good place to sit and the staff were very nice. I ordered a pasta which was just average. But I could rest a bit and was very relaxed there.
