“Nice concept... Not quite there yet! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in the hotel, so decided to give the restaurant a try. First of all, try and book. Not a lot of room, but we ate in the bar area.
The menu was interesting if a bit limited. A very nice waitress explained the "sharing" aspect of the restaurant akin to tapas style restaurants. The food was very tasty, but very over priced for what it was. In fact we had tried another more traditional tapas bar two nights previous and found that much better value.
Portions are on the small side and the concept really only works if the dishes arrive in quick succession. So when we had to wait 30 mins for the pork belly, the event kind of lost its way.
Overall ok. Not sure I would go again without some changes. Bigger portions, or less expensive and try and keep on track with the order. The staff however, we're excellent. Amsterdam isn't known for its friendly attentive waiters, but here was a pleasant exception.

“Trendy, friendly, great food and great vibes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

5&33 is a bar-restaurant part of the Art'Otel where I stayed with a friend.
We were offered a drink on the house as we were hotel guests so also thought we'd try their tapas-style menu.
We sat at the bar sipping prosecco and chose 4 or 5 dishes to shares all priced around 5-15 Euros each. The scallops and samphire were particularly good, as were the cured meats and pasta dishes. Foccacia and oils were served as a friendly extra which was a lovely touch.
The bar staff were so attentive and chatty that we stayed on for a further cocktail or two which were excellently presented and made.

A DJ was playing some chilled music and we were told that the bar turns into quite a full dance floor towards the end of the night however we left to find a different shot bar for a change of scene on our short weekend trip.

Would definitely recommend the place for a light dinner and/or drinks with friends or if you are a couple - whether you are staying at the hotel or not.
Directly opposite Centraal station so easy to find :-)

“Break or business meeting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

If you have a business meeting or you need a quiet place to work or to chill in one of the busiest areas of amsterdam, the lounge of 5&33 is a great choice.
The location as well as the position is top, ambience in welcoming and easy, wifi working perfectly, coffee is good and staff is informal and friendly. To be checked for drinks and dinner as well.
