I visited this restaurant before going to a classic concert in the Concertgebouw. It is a cosy ambiance, but the atmosphere is a bit weary and routineous. The same is valid for the food: the baked cod I ordered had been cooked far too long,...More

We had fish and steak - the food was great! High quality and good taste. The Service was simply said: arrogant and not really listening. The location as such is really nice.

I was here with friends three years ago, and at that time recommended the place. The quality has not changed, the friendly service has not changed. Absolutely worth the effort of moving 10 mins. out of center of Amsterdam.

Although the menu is not extensive, nor is the wine list but this place makes up for that with good food and excellent service. There were mainly locals eating here and it is clear they think the restaurant deserves its good reputation

It's a restaurant with the feel of a pub. Try the steak or liver. It always comes with a starter salad for free. Good value.

Great place not far at all from the wonderful Van Gogh museum. From outside it looked a bit empty but that is because it is split level as I soon found out. Relaxed, unpretentious and lovely. Recommended.

This is a lovely, unpretentious restaurant which serves good quality food which tastes great. The fish seemed to be very fresh and the steak was excellent too. The service was second-to-none; the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the meal was delivered quickly as...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
