We came across this place when walking from Anne Frank House towards Damrak. Once inside, we were quickly ushered to a table and our orders were taken. It was an extremely busy place, with a huge terrace out on the street as well - yet...More

We stopped at the outdoor tables on a canal bridge to have an afternoon snack before catching the train to Utrecht. We ordered some beers, some bitterballen and a cheese board, and enjoyed our food while watching boats on the canal and cyclists on the...More

Nice one for having a coffee, drink or some quick meal in the center of Amsterdam. Next to the tables you got the standard canal view where you can just sit and enjoy the sun.

Had a fantastic weiss beer IPA and some delicious croquettes with a colleague on a sunday night. Nice location by a canal with a big patio. Just what we needed.

We mainly stopped to take in the view and have a beer and wine whilst sitting in the middle of the bridge that crossed the Singel Canal on a cold afternoon. It was very pleasant.

Van Zuylen have a very attractive terrace on the bridge over the Singel canal. Unique! Service is friendly. But 14 Euros for a small basket of fried snacks is excessively overpriced even to Amsterdam big city standards.

Avoid!!!! Dirty, over priced, cats all over and the food is horrible. Got the burger and chicken skewers which were just reheated. Chicken was full of fat and burger was like some cheap frozen burger you'd buy. Also got the bitterballen which were rock solid...More
