Description: Cafe de Toog is a typical dutch bar-restaurant, located just from the busy Leidseplein and very close to the Vondelpark. Cafe de Toog offers an extensive beerlist, decent wines and great wholesome food for fair prices. The menu consists of dutch classics, burgers, steaks and much more, all for an affordable price! The typical dutch bar is decorated with paintings of famous dutch artist Herman Brood (de Toog used to be his local pub) and old photos from the neighboorhood. Get of the beaten touristic track and visit Cafe De Toog!

“Great restaurant with excellent services”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I had a delicious dinner and a few beers with my friends in this restaurant. The prices were reasonable, and you wont be hungry and thirsty at all for your money. Very good place to move out from the typical tourist spots and to eat and drink among locals in Amsterdam.

“A great bar that channels Amsterdam's effortless cool”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Cafe de Toog is hard to find unless someone tells you about it, but it shouldn't be missed. It's everything you'd expect from a good bar in Amsterdam: rugged but polished surroundings, fun but classy vibe and warm but competent staff.

The food's hearty, but if you're after a snack you can't go past the bitterballen, a traditional and ridiculously addictive Dutch dish of mouth-scorching, bite-sized crumbed balls filled with some miscellaneous creamy, meaty goodness. Add some great beer and you've got a bar/cafe/restaurant well worthy of Holland's wicked capital.

“Excellent place to have a great time, delicious food, nice chats and some high standard drinks for a short visit to Amsterdam!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Me and my girl decided to spend a nice weekend in Amsterdam. For us Germans it's always a pleasure to visit this great city with its friendly and nice people.
As we went to the Cafe de Toog, we would not have thought that we will spend such a nice time up there. We could easily find new chat partners and with the experienced bartenders this place made our journey!
The great food (especially those small potatoe things called billabong - sorry if I spell it wrong!) and the drinks we will of course come again!

“Must visit! One of the best bars in Amsterdam”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Cafe de Toog is without doubt one of the best places in Amsterdam, we loved it!! - a must visit!
Really authentic dutch bar/restaurant, the type of place the locals would tell you to go, we found it by chance and were really please we did.
Just far enough away from the tacky tourist areas but still within easy distance from most hotels and hostels. Food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Great selection of booze and the bar staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Really attractive decor and the atmosphere is vibrant and pleasant. Really recommend going even if you are just in The Dam for a couple of days
