Great neighborhood pub not overrun by drunks like some parts of Amsterdam. Quaint inside and great Bitterballen to go with good beer selection and friendly servers.

A truly authentic Amsterdam bar with a fantastic mix of locals and tourists. Very friendly staff and of course great drinks. Wonderful atmosphere and well named!

Tucked away behind a very unimposing facade is this little gem of a bar restaurant. The decor and the ambiance is very unassuming and very much like an old style bar. But the staff and the food are just great. The menu is very short so you can be assured of home style food cooked with love and care. Just... More

We found this cafe purely by chance and as it was a nice day we sat at one of the pavement tables for lunch. My wife ordered the Goats cheese salad which she said matched the presentation. It was perfect! I, not feeling very hungry chose a cheese & tomato toastie which was quite nice. 2 large beers and 2... More

My friends and I stopped into this place as one of the first places on our night out on the town. We grabbed a small table and had some beers. Some of us went to the bar side also. This place can get pretty busy like most places in Amsterdam as the night goes on, but if you can get... More

Perhaps the place looks better when full of people - it is tatty, messy all over. But, who cares about that sort of stuff, when in good company? Untill your coffee arrives. In best case, they reused yesterdays grindings, in the worst case... don't want to think. If the floor had been cleaner you could think they'd used that water... More

I happened upon this little cafe/bar on my first day in Amsterdam. Sampled some wonderful beers with the help of a friendly barman and had a few local bar snacks. 4 days later I popped back in for beer and dinner. So delicious, still the same friendly service and lots of new beers. What more do you want????!!! Check this... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
