We love this place and go here at least once a week, the staff is friendly and the food is great. Don't go here for a romantic evening or a catch up with friends - you have to fight for a seat (bench) so not a great place for a chat, but still very much worth a visit.

The front of the shop is the burger store, however behind the secret door is a whole different dining experience. Don't expect to get behind the door without a reservation! To get a reservation you have to e-mail them and request. if you are lucky you will be e-mailed with the time and a password. When we arrived, pressed the bell, ask for our password and name, upon confirmation a model blonde hostess greeted us and used a remote to open a second door. We entered a very dark speakeasy feeling room. All very clandestine and romantic! Food was great, service with Marsha was great. Very fun experience!

Been here a couple of times and have never been disappointed! Expensive for a burger but its a full meal, not just a snack. Great service even late at nght when its busy with young people looking for an equivilant of a kebab. The beef hotdog is the best...ever!

They have a variety of choices for burgers but weren't the best tasting burgers in town. Ordered a burger medium and received it entirely rare and even cold in the middle. When we mentioned it to the guys behind the counter, they couldn't have cared less. Burger bar burgers are way better.

In Amsterdam there are a few hamburger joints like " Burgermeester" , "Burger Bar" and the " Butcher".

In terms of quality, taste and service the Butcher outperforms the others! This is just the best place in Amsterdam to get a burger. Prices are very reasonable and not expensive.

It can be very busy and the place is not very big inside. You can order/ call upfront and takeaway or just be patient to wait to get a seat. We mostly go a bit earlier in the day or later to avoid busy times around dinner.
