Lovely small corner pub, very cosy on a cold March day. Had a few half litres of Heineken that was very nice. Service was friendly and efficient by the multi tasking barmaid/cook!

Very traditional, good beer, didn't try the food! Nice spot to watch the world go by! Set on a main street and just round the corner from the Jordan area!

Great place to sit outside and have a beer and watch the street activities. If you want something to eat then get a toasti, otherwise stick to the beer and eat elsewhere.

I was here reading and to make me leave they cranked up the music at 11:00am! The breakfast is 7.50 Euro and is cooked by Amsterdam's angriest cook. Same person was also very rude to other customers.

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
