We love cafes and bistros and we love going to local delights like this often Their seating is cramped inside so we always sit out. You have to choose the off-peak hours if you want a table because it is very popular. The last time,...More

We rolled into this lovely establishment based on proximity, trip reviews and the burning desire to eat. With that as the backdrop one would expect our bar to be low, but it is not. The food here is simply excellent. The lamb burger was done...More

Amazing dining experience if you want seafood or steak, or both... The ‘Venus’ steak was the perfect size and done exactly as ordered. The lobster tail also was the perfect size and a must is the potatoes. The staff were so friendly, attentive and polite....More

Stumbled on this little cafe whilst wandering the streets on the way to the museum quarter. We got a table inside by the window. The place was packed. Food amazing. Highly recommend stopping here for a lazy lunch watching the world, and mainly the bikes,...More

Looks like a standard bar, but they have some great soup and their lamb burger are the best. Well worth a try.

The food is great! It’s a small place so sometimes the kitchen can get behind - especially if a large party shows up. A little noisy but once again depends on the crowd. Food quality was excellent, great high quality ingredients, good wine list and...More

I had heard great things about this restaurant, but in the end it was overpriced and lacking in quality. My steak was chewy and the sides were just ok. With the variety of restaurants to choose from in AMS I will not be coming again....More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too. The food was perfect, I really liked the atmosphere and the location too.

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.
