Simple is good. This pub will provide you with great local beers and simple pub food. The place itself is cosy, lots of candles are lit inside. They even have a cat!

We ordered cheeseburgers. They were mostly fluffy, tasteless bread. What little meat there was tasted awful.

Locals, tourists, old men, university students and me with my children - everyone was relaxed here. The food was good, the service was timely and the beer was cold.

We stopped for a drink and food after seeing the neighborhood. It was a sunny day so we sat on the bridge. Shut back. Relax. Enjoy the day with friends and a good beer. I had Grimbergen Tripel.

Had a few drinks and steak (cooked to perfection!), loved the atmosphere inside, the canal view and ambience outside, really great place to hang out, drink and continue to eat... we didn’t need to move, we carry on the night!

One of my favourite bars in Amsterdam. Always a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Standing outside on a warm summery night with a cigarette and watching the people go by is a treat. Order some bitterballen whilst you're there.

If the location and the view are quite pleasant, the service is barely acceptable. A cappuccino with no sugar proposed and no tiny biscuit is not normal.

We stumbled across this café one evening and had a few drinks. We observed the meals that was being served and decided to return the following day for lunch. We were not disappointed as the meals were fantastic. All the staff that served us were...More

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
