Description: In an old warehouse situated at the Amsterdam Lijnbaansgracht (a Dutch canal) a new cafe restaurant has been opened. It is a new hotspot close to the Leidse Square, In de Buurt is frequented by locals and it's conveniently located at 4 minutes walking distance from the Museumplein, the cultural heart of Amsterdam.

I originally sat down for an afternoon expresso along the canal with a book - after while I glanced at the menu and decided it was worth a try. I was not disappointed - the food was delicious! I had an amazing goat cheese salad with nuts and honey and other tasty bits. It's a small place that became pretty busy ~6-7ish and people had reservations, however others did just walk in and were able to be seated after a short wait. I sat a the (very small) bar which was fine as long as you didn't mind the occassional brush on the back as people made their way down the narrow aisles.

We wandered in to this restaurant for a late lunch after a wonderful bike ride with Joy Bike Ride tours. The food was outstanding and after trying all the top rated frites stands in Amsterdam, our entire family felt that the fries here were better than any of the ones we had at the snack stands. Both our vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals were outstanding and the service was great. There is a small seating area outside but more seating inside, though the restaurant is small. Definitely worth visiting - try the bitterballen (vegetarian and meat versions were great) and definitely get the frites (which, interestingly enough, come with entree salads!).

We found this place after being yelled at by hawkers from Argentinian restaurants on Leidseplein and ran. We saw this place and it immediately reminded us of a neighborhood restaurant (lo and behold, that's the name of the place) and we weren't disappointed. Waiters were cute, food was yummy and vibe was relaxed and pleasant, even though it is a scene only a block away. Food was well prepared and came out quickly. Enjoy a glass of rosé and watch the city pass by.

We ordered the beef steak with pepper sauce.
It was quite tough, not as tender as it should have been.

Booked this place for a special occasion as we had a large group and didn't want to risk not being able to get a small table. It's a tiny place with only around 50 covers, but it certainly packs in the crowds. The menu is not perhaps the most extensive (it's on the website) but the quality of the food is excellent. The chicken satay was amazing. We left feeling absolutely stuffed and really happy. I would gladly return. Some people may find the restaurant to small and noisy but this really wasn't an issue for us. In fact I think it added to the great atmosphere. The service was also really good. If you want somewhere central for a nice meal and not too touristy, I'd definitely recommend this place.
