“so nice and easy!!”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

YES!! this is the right place to experience the local atmosphere while drinking or eating! few plates, but very well prepared and waiters are very kind, professional and great problem solver, even if very very busy. due to a misunderstanding, a waiter assigned us a table so we took place. a second one told us the table was reserved, but she'd have given us another one in 10 minutes. she asked us to order dinner so that it would have been ready together with the new table. maybe it happens everywhere...it's been my first time!! main courses around 9/10 euros, kitchen close at 21.30, but you can eat delicious fried food till late. NO credit cards....

“AMAZING VALUE, DELICIOUS FOOD”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

I cannot recommend this restaurant/pub enough for friendliness, great food and value. Dishes cost 8-9 euro and we couldnt believe our luck when the food came. This is a place with little tourists and many natives... which speaks for itself. Enjoy :)

“Great local restaurant in the Jordaan”
Reviewed April 19, 2009

We stayed around the corner from De Blaffende Vis and finally tried it on our last night in Amsterdam. The waitress told us the kitchen was about to close (it was 9:30 PM on a Monday night) and explained the four dishes they offered that night. I chose the gambas (large prawns) with couscous and my boyfriend ordered a special salad with grilled mushrooms & tomatoes, Aged Gouda cheese, and assorted greens & vegetables. It was quickly brought to us at an upstairs table. The food was fantastic and original. Later we went downstairs to enjoy a couple of beers at the bar - by 10:30 the crowd was just starting to assemble! At the end of our evening, we'd had two dinners, glasses of wine, and four beers - the total came to 33.30 Euro. A great value!
