Description: The characteristic building at number 21 in the famous Reguliersdwarsstraat in the city centre of Amsterdam has a warm and relaxed ambiance. The interior has a retro look with a cheerful Mediterranean-Caribbean twist. The large bar with an extensive collection of spirits jumps right in the eye and invites you to drink one of our cocktails or just an ice cold beer. The menu consists of classic dishes, with an emphasis on comfort food. As a starter we serve for example a crispy Soft Shell Crab in tempura or Quinoa salad with figs, blue cheese and bacon.For the main dish we can not miss the Red Snapper: the fillet grilled with a Caribbean salsa and served with a cous cous salad. Or do you prefer a Surf 'n Turf with Diamond Fillet and Black Tiger Prawns? We serve also all time favorites with a "Snappers twist" as Fish & Chips and juicy BBQ Ribs. The prices of the entrees remain all under 10 euros, the prices of the main courses range from 12 to 18 euros. Oscar Steginga responsible for the cocktails, has made a beautiful cocktail menu including classic tiki and tropical cocktails. He works with lots of fresh fruit and homemade juices. And you can taste it! Take for example the Big Bamboo, including a mix of pineapple, overproof rum and Havana 3y. He uses homemade syrups such as rice syrup in the Healthy Pluym (Ketel One Vodka, green tea, prosecco and lemon in it). Furthermore, there are all sorts of Gin & Tonic combination served in perfect harmony.

“Must try the ribs!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner whilst in Amsterdam for a few days. I wouldn't normally order the ribs but he did and they were incredible, easily the best ribs either of us have had. They were also able to adapt things to be gluten free and they had a great gin list!

“Excellent food and sublime cocktails in the centre of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

I have visited this place several times since the opening and there is only one thing I can say: EXCELLENT! Friendly staff, a great variety of quality dishes and a loungy atmosphere. Beautiful and delicious cocktails and the best thing of this place is that it transforms into a bar after dinner. Try the delicious big bamboo which is their signature cocktail! A new hotspot in Amsterdam has been born!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

close to the flowermarket you will encounter a lot of people trying to get you in their 'restaurant'... but just don' please... somewhere nedding a seller in front to get you in means it's NOT a right place to go... a bit further we fell across this nice woody place and we got in after a quick look at the menu... simple and choosy... for everyone... nice meat, wonderful quinoa salad, great ribs, good wine... and friendly prices... AND WHAT A SMILE !!! a great team awaits you there...

“Great atmosphere and creative menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

A few friends and I went to snappers to have dinner, watch some football and to drink some beers,

Havent been in a bar in amsterdam with an atmosphere like this.

The two waiters and owners are really kind and the best coctail shakers in town!


Food is not expensive and realy nice. Also the names on the menu are really creative.


We are definetly going to come back to snappers! Amazing place

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Went here for dinner, wasn't familiar with an ingredient and it was graciously explained. Food turned out to be fantastic, I had the holy ravioli and my boyfriend had the cod and chips. Amazing meal, good value, excellent service and attention to detail. Gutted I didn't have room to try a dessert they looked amazing. A must see!
