A good surprise hidden in an alley!! Great tapas and beer 😊 Staff members were nice with one exception, the bald waiter with glasses was very arrogant.

We had the famous Farmer's omelette here and other local foods. Very filling and delicious. This place very packed and didn't know that actually it's a well known place to eat. Super nice carrot cake for dessert. Good service and clean toilet too.

I was really lucky when I found it. This is really nice place! Fish soup with mussels and shrimps is delicious. And the price is good (8,5£ for a big bowl) for Amsterdam.

Stopped in for an early dinner was treated well even though we only speak English. Food was very tasty, service was attentive and a somewhat decent Belgian beer selection. Dessert is a must. I would definitely return.

Only came here for a beer, but this place was an experience. Great location, and an incredible set up. Loved how it was hidden down an alley as well. Certainly worth checking out.

We came here for lunch after arriving in Amsterdam and were very impressed. We had the club sandwich (chicken, bacon and avocado) and the farmers omelette, which had lots of different vegetables. The best thing about the place though is the atmosphere. You have to...More
