“Great place for break”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Best brew shop in town. Now that the little outside cafe on the Danrak has vanished (was still there last year Dec12 and really disappointed to see it gone?) the Koepel Cafe is the best classy stop for a warming cuppa or refreshing brew during or after a long trek around the Dam. Just don't expect priority boarding with that brew Sir you will jolly well have to wait like the rest of the cattle!

“typical brown bar”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is typically traditional Dutch brown bar,with good selection of beers and food,and becauseit is part of Renaissance hotel it tends not to get the rowdy tourists visiting.

“Try the burgers...”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Fab burgers - good add ons - especially dutch cheese. As a guest in the hotel week upon week, it was nice to stay in but be feeling like you're outside and enjoying the world. The service is a little slow, but that's the American in me likely. The prices are good, the portions are nicely sized.

“100 per cent”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had stopped here for a beer yesterday and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, great people watching and friendly service, so thought we would go back today and after a beer, decided to stay for dinner. We were so pleased with the roast chicken served with a large variety and quantity of roasted fresh vegetable. Everything was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The whole experience was excellent.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Good food, reasonable prices. Right outside our hotel door!
On a comic note, we walked right past it several times while touring, and then couldn't find it when we tried. Not until we gave up and went back to the hotel did we realize it was right next door.
We sat outside, because the inside involved stairs.
