“Great workshop with the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Wonderful cooking workshop with the family (8 pers). After a little bubbly wecome drink, we all went to the separate preparation and kitchen area downstairs. Ruud was very patient and professional his approach. We learned some new recipes and techniques like making our own fresh pasta (!) and then ate it together upstairs in the restaurant. Very cozy and comfortable environment. Definitely a good tip for a fun workshop with colleagues or family!

“Good quality food, friendly local veggie-led cafe/restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed at the West Cord Fashion hotel, and this place on the Overtoom was the only local we liked - we went there 3 times. It is quite casual and people tend to drop in rather than book. Open morning to mid evening. The seating areas are small. However, the staff are very friendly, speak English well, and all the food is made on the premises. It reminded me of Bill's restaurants.
They had lots of deli, quiche, salad, pasta type food to choose from, all freshlly made. We had their 'surprise' three course menu for 25 euros one night and it was all delicious and very filling.
Great spot for vegetarians - about 50% of the options are veggie.
Good value for Amsterdam.

“Nice stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

We just stopped in as it was near our apt. Very friendly service. Nice menu but limited choice. Lots of locals in place. We both had a pasta special and enjoyed it greatly. They have English menu and both staff speak excellent English.

“Lovely food and relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

This place was near my hotel. The first time I ate there it was a random choice but I went back twice because it was so nice.

The food is very good: mainly pasta dishes, salads and tapas. Portions are generous. Service is friendly and helpful.

I saw lots of locals come in to buy food to take away and there seemed to be plenty of regular customers eating there too.
