This is a great Dutch style brown bar. Bigger than most, it's often full of a happy mix of tourists and locals. Beer selection is ok, but not a huge variety like some specialty places.

Stumbled across this gem while walking away from the typical tourists route. Seems to be a place where the Dutch actually go. Service is nice and great local beer on tap. If you seek something more Dutch come here and relax.

I went to this bar with some friends to celebrate my birthday with some drinks. The ambiance was nice. Kind but chaotic service. Very loud music.

This place was recommended by locals, and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing. Everything we had was so delicious - onion soup, toasties, grilled salmon salad, croquettes. One of the best meals we had in Amsterdam.

Thijssen is where locals go for a decent beer and some bitterballen. Mix of bar service and table service. Decently priced.

Popped in for breakfast on Friday. Lovely view with canal in a quiet part of town. Nice food. Nice service

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
