“What a deal, great food & atmosphere, perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Run, do not walk, directly to this restaurant with an empty tummy and you will be delighted with what you find here! This is a branch of the Pieminister restaurant from the UK and I'm glad they opened here in Amsterdam, spring of 2012. You'll be warmly greeted not only by the servers but by the inviting smells of delicious meat pies of all types. We (two of us) had their daily special which included Brit-basics like mashed potatoes, mushy minty peas, the best meat pie I ever had garnished with melted cheese, onion bits and gravy. Have a Heineken on the side (heck, you ARE in Amsterdam after all) and you'll have the perfect cheap-eat that will leaving you full until the next morning. The place was very clean and gezellig (cozy) but ample room to enjoy your meal and drink. Very quiet considering the extremely busy road it's located on. I wish I had gone back one more time before heading back home, though!

Great set up, made very clear with step by step process on the board! We both had moo pie with mash and gravy. It was very quick and tasted delicious! Would definitely return :)

“ideal for shepherd's pie's lovers: a cozy and tidy place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

..between the rush and motley animation of the old centre's canals; in front of a University site (the stately courtyard deserves a glance).
Delicious meat pies-cum-gravy-cum-topping: I had a moo pie (beef, mostly) because it was the only one left and readily available, but the nice guy behind the counter was busy preparing another batchful of different varieties.
Clean and smart interior design, clean toilets complete the picture. Maybe draught beer would be asking too much? 12,5 € with a bottle of beer.
