We stayed just around the corner from this bar, and visited on quite a few occasions, a great atmosphere and lovely food/drinks.

Would recommend a visit, definitely. Always people outside drinking and eating and a great get away from the touristy city centre bars.

It was wonderful to have the choice of a nice bistro right next to Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam where we were staying right on a canal. The food is well prepared and tasty and the service is welcoming and efficient. There are inside as well as outside tables, especially for smokers. One is welcome to have just drinks, or snacks or a full meal.

Food here is good quality, and the cheeseboard is huge. Sitting alongside the canal April-September is awersome.

On a sunny day Amsterdam is lovely. Terraces are overcrowded, people are friendly, love is in the air. Gent aan de Schinkel is one of those places where you can spent time from aperitif at 17.00 till the last ''one for the road'' at midnight. We were here late June, by coincidence the day that the summer had chosen to pay a short visit to Amsterdam. Service was relaxed, drinks were fine, food was mwah, OK but not spectacular, apparently the kitchen was very busy so time for a nice presentation was lacking, but at the other hand prices are decent. We spent with three all together 105 euro's. Ships are passing, the bridge opens and closes, nice trees and many bikes, it is Amsterdam as we know it, as we like it.

A great place to drink a few beers in a sunny day. They have a good beer collection that will satisfy most people. As for food, I have only tried their bittergarnituur (deep fried snacks plate), which was quite good. The food that other customers were having looked quite good as well. I have only been here a couple of times but in both cases the service was friendlier and faster than what I have got used to in Amsterdam.
