Definitely not prepared to serve families with kids. The environment was nice but it was mostly empty. Service was mediocre and food came very slowly. Waiters were not paying attention except to the only other table with people in the restaurant. The food was real...More

Food was gorgeous, service was very good and waiter helped us understand the menu. Atomosphere was slightly lacking as we went for an early dinner at 6:30pm as we were hungry after a busy day out. Recommend the cocktails!

This restaurant has good food and acceptable service with a buzzy, Italian feel to it. The specials were pointed out to us but we chose other things from the menu and were happy with our choices. There is a tank of lobsters you can choose...More

Great location in Amsterdam, the restaurant itself looked ok, quite simple, nothing sumptuous, but the food was absolutely fantastic, I would walk across Amsterdam to enjoy diner there any time.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
