“Food was okay. Service was slow. ”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We opted to grab lunch here as we were looking for a place with western food, not heavy Dutch food.
My girlfriend had the Classic Club sandwich and I had the scramed eggs with salmon and toast. The food was fine. Nothing special yet nothing bad.
The service was particularly slow and confusing.

We were seated promptly but then waited a while to order. There seemed to be no logic for how the wait staff dealt with the various tables. The table to the right of us hadn't eve gotten menus by the time we ordered our food despite them having been seated before us. The table to our left got their food before us even though they ordered well after us.
All in the meal was fine but be sure you have plenty of time and are in a patient mood.

“Great food”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Lovely place to eat, staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for you. We were given an English menu which we found a nice touch as it stopped us from struggling with trying to translate things. I had the spaghetti and it was rather nice and easy to eat. It didn't leave a mess, like other spaghettis that we eaten. Desert was lovely and very filling. The toilets were clean as well, which made it go up in my estimation as I'm extremely fussy over toilets. Would I recommend it, yes! If we go back to Amsterdam, we will return to this restaurant.

“Winter Market!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

A must if you're in the Dam during the winter hols. Great street food, dutch holidays snacks, a lovely and lively atmosphere. Don't forget to bring cash! I'm still craving the warm stroopwaffes, delish churros and brats!

“Good views”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

The square is a cool place to hangout and people watch. Good view of the palace, the festival carts, and restaurants.

“Central location, lots of good street food”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

One of the central locations for the trams. Busy plaza near on by the Winter Market, the train station, Red Light district and the palace. Nice walk around.
