We dropped in here after a long day of walking around the city and found a nice little bar/cafe with a view of the canal and a friendly owner behind the bar. Good cold beer and authentic Dutch food (we had wonderful pea soup). The...More

I was excited to visit this place. Finally visited this evening for dinner.Good ambience, good vibe and live music. However food was not at all great and especially not worth the price. Completely disappointed with the price paid for the food.

After a long morning of walking around Amsterdam we stopped at this great place to grab a beer and lunch. They have tables along the canal as well as inside. The food was outstanding. I had the traditional croquettes with thick slices of homemade bread....More

Came here one evening after visiting museums as it was close to our hotel. The food was good, as was the service.

Fab location - shame they don’t really want your custom. Deep fried beige food - overpriced - felt very cliquey. We were obviously not part of the clientele they ‘aspired’ themselves too.

A great location ruined by very bad food and very high prices. Service was very slow and not friendly. We had a mediocre salad and even more mediocre sandwich. We sat during lunch and were constantly interrupted by the flow of arrival of products. And...More

Found this place by chance when walking back to our apartment. Lovely location and away from the centre so much quieter. Really cosy place with seats outside next to the canal. The food is excellent, with various tapas dishes, starters and mains. The meatballs are...More

We stumbled upon this delightful, busy pub while walking down Prinsengracht in Amsterdam and were lured inside by the sounds of live jazz. A quintet of seasoned pros evidently play there most Friday nights, and they are truly amazing! We wandered in to have a...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
