“Good Dutch fare”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We went here following a recommendation from somebody who is Dutch and comes from Amsterdam. We were not disappointed. We were treated to Dutch food by means of Stampot and good reasonably priced wine.
It appeared that once you had your table there was no rush to get you out! Just chill out, relax and enjoy the food.
You need to book if you want to eat before about 8.30, however, some table came free after then if you have not booked.
Well recommended.

At Prinsengracht 287, and run by Carla and Esther, who are great fun, with current Dutch pop music playing and basic Dutch menu and beers etc at good prices. And free WiFi.

“Great little Dutch restaurant by the canal”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Saw this on our afternoon travels decided to go for dinner later. Had the Dutch meal stampot. As they say when in Amsterdam eat Dutch. Found the meal very enjoyable. The place has great food and service and the location is great also. Suggest booking as it can get rather busy. We went early and had no problem but would not chance it if you really want to try this lovely restaurant

“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place trying to get dinner late on a state holiday. They couldn't seat us then, but every one inside was having so much fun, we knew we had to try again the next day. It is a small place with just a few tables inside - maybe 10 - with additional seating along the canal. Expect traditional Dutch home cooking - tasty and filling. If the waitress gives you a recommendation take it. She knows her stuff, and was very sweet. We felt like locals for a little while, and left happy, and well fed.

“Make A Reservation”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Very quaint Dutch bistro, but DEFINITELY make a reservation (I made mine via email) because the inside is rather small. They were having to turn people away who hadn't made a reservation. Had the traditional Dutch meal stamppot with stewed beef and was very good. Warm and perfect fill your belly when it's chilly outside! Glad I stopped in for a traditional Dutch meal here!
