Another night in Amsterdam and another dinner with Dutch family. They love this place... for good reason. The menu consists of appetizers that you would normally find on the appetizer list of a North American style Japanese restaurant. They are meant to share and they...More

We have been recommended to go to this restaurant a few times but always missed the opportunity - we were lucky walking in relatively late and getting a table, the place is in very high demand. We have been waiting at the bar while being...More

We ate a lot of wonderful food on our European holiday, but it was very difficult to find good Japanese... and De Japanner is VERY good! The food was fresh, great flavours, good variety. My only suggestions is that rice would be a nice option....More

It is a nice place to have an extensive diner. We took the menu and we had plenty of food, even too much. They play good music and has a lively scene. Nice place to visit but not visiting again anytime soon.

Nice tapas style restaurant. Every dish was a pleasant discovery. Special note for the squid fries and the beef (so tasty and tender). Very nice and pleasant service. Will go back and try the rest of the menu8

Small plates Japanese, great cocktails, and fair prices. Staff was super friendly and attentive. Strongly recommend showing up before 7pm with a reservation or else its standing room only.

Very good atmosphere for a Monday evening. The food was nothing amazing (but good) and we found out they don't serve rice with dishes you may expect it. Will def be back with friends but I think its a bit loud for a date.

You read the review score and hope they've been left by people like you. You don't need to worry about this little gem. Service is informal but attentive. Menu is simple but tempting. Atmosphere is relaxed and vibrant. The food is very well presented and...More

De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag
through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp
Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s
many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic
thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in
search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly
half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners
and a good number of them are students. Here you'll
