“nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

I've been there for a b-day celebration, the place is huge inside although it does not seem so from the entrance. The waiters were responsive and not annoying (or at least we were lucky). The Ysbreeker burger was very good, although if i could compare it to the Burger Bar burgers...not that delicious anymore. Definitely recommend the creme brulee it's very heavy as a dessert but has lavender it which makes it special.
The menu has lots of fresh fish and seasfood and French desserts.

“De Ysbreeker catches the sun until late afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Very nice place for all kind of meals, very nice for a drink too. It has a Berlin kind of atmosphere, relatively dark inside. Locals love it, it's a wonderful location in front of the river and bikes pass by all the time making the place lively and happy. It can be a family place too - I see happy babies and kids quite often. Just perfect for Sunday lunch, the food is average European, well cooked, well served. Not very sure about the service, some of them seem to be kind of lost and do not always communicate well. De Ysbreeker catches the sun until late afternoon, the sun is reflected from the river and the place is the ideal option on a sumner day.

“Very nice setting but so so food and service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The waitresses in this place really need to get a course of client service. They seem bored (or hung over?) and are not at all interested in their customers.
The food is average. We had both breakfast and lunch here. My yoghurt with fresh fruit and muesli was quite poor. The muesli I'm sure came out of simple supermarket pack and the fresh fruit salad tasted like it was from the day before. Coffee is good.

Same impression during a quick lunch. Again a bored waitress, sandwich with spicy mackerel salad was ok. Chocolate cake was divine though (they seem to get their cakes a famous bakeries. If anything, go for coffee & cake.

“Nice Bistro/Bar/Terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Nice Bistro/Bar/Terrace overlooking the river Amstel. Closes at 1 pm I think. It was great seating outside, sipping one of the many beers and other Dutch jenever!
