“Great little bar in centre of town”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Place is inviting and friendly, maybe this was because of the rain and wind outside! We still loved it though as was easy to relax and had good atmosphere. Sat at the bar with a good range of beers and nibbles. Good place to meet up with friends and have a beer.

“Good location, loud music!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

2nd time I was here. 1st time (in 2007) I just wanted to have a nice cup of coffee for a fair price, and I got that and the reception was friendly. 2nd time I was there there was too loud music inside and I felt it was just one of those Amsterdam places not necessary to visit. In summer, however, you have a nice view of De Waag en de Nieuwmarkt if you sit outside or by thge window.

“Good cafe on the edge of the red light”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Located at Nieumarkt just to the east of the Red Light District. This cafe has a great terrace out the front. For a sunny day this is perfect for watching Amsterdam pass you by.

“Excellent all round”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We came cross this Cuban café whilst orientating ourselves around the market areas of Amsterdam and needed a break for a few minutes.

The barman was very informative about the area and very chatty to the point we stayed for nearly 2 hours and bought several KRISTELS each of Amstel beer at what has to be one of the most reasonable price in Amsterdam itself .

If you get a chance to visit this café the Cuban music is not so loud to be too loud and the decoration/atmosphere in keeping with the Cuban feel making this a most relaxing atmosphere despite a very steep wooden staircase that I would be wary of if I wasn't totally sober.

If you are not particularly tall chap, you might want to avoid what has to be the highest positioned urinal in the Country, so unless you’re around 6 foot tall, you might want to use the cubicle instead.
