We went her for part of our team Christmas evening. We had two lanes with some food and drinks included. The bowling was great fun. But what really stood out was that it was absolutely Packed inside yet the service was speedy and friendly and any special requests were dealt with quickly.

Went here with a group of colleagues for bowling and dinner. Upscale bowling alley with attached restaurant. Bowling was fun. Drinks and appetizers were served to us while bowling. Cold beer in glasses including Heineken and craft brews. Honestly not sure what the different appetizers were but they were tasty. Dinner was billed as a traditional Dutch dinner. Different dishes...

We went here with colleagues for an hour of bowling. The theme was like disco bowling, but its just a lot of lights with a bit louder music. In the end it was a fun time out as it always is with bowling :)

There isn't a saying but when u visit a city ask the locals where to go. So here is an advise from a local. If you are looking for a entertaining evening just visit Knijn Bowling & Restaurant. They have 18 bowling lanes and 2 restaurants. The staff is friendly and thankfully al the issues with the lanes are history... More

Quite old but good location opposite the RAI exhibition and conference area. Many tiny restaurants and street cafes near by. Techically sufficien, good bar with attentive waiters. Food only average. Good for a relaxing brak after show hours but nothing more.

Been there last week during their bowling disco on saturday. Had no problems with the bowling, I was told they were closed for renovation a few weeks before, so maybe they read one of the comments on here. (or maybe the translation is bad?) We didn't have any food, but we had a bunch of drinks. It's pricy, but everything... More

I just want to review the restaurant annexed, not the actual bowling facility that is quite alright. You cannot have only one waiter in the whole venue, have your guest wait forever to get their food, bring cold food to several people and take the luxury to say that the huge delay is our fault because another person added himself...

I went bowling here and I was really surprised by the high rates they charged me. It was also not clean at all and the staff wasn't friendly, they just don't seem to care. The problem is that there are just a few bowling centre in Amsterdam.
