Was given the name of this restaurant by a local we met on the plane. Glad we took her advice. We ordered the fixed price 3 course meal. Everything we chose was well prepared and tasty. I would recommend it to anyone.

Some Amsterdam guides say this is supposed to be a good place. It wasn't good, it wasn't bad - it was just mediocre food with pretty bad service. So spend your money somewhere else. There are so many good restaurants in Amsterdam, not this one.

A modern bistro near the vibrant pijp area of Amsterdam exudes the ambience of France. Delicious cuisine at reasonable prices, also very friendly service.

many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic
thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in
search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly
