Amazing wine, food and service, very boutiquey quirky, we had ‘catch of the day’for dinner at about 9pm with a starter of the grilled bread and dip which was incredible! The staff were lovely. The vibe was friendly and everything was just great!

A friend who lives in Amsterdam recommended the restaurant and i was not dissapointed. Plenty of seats available along the canal in the sunshine and the service was very friendly and helpful. We both had sandwiches which were lovely and very tasty.

We were walking around looking for place and found this. My date had iberico ham and Parmesan on a baguette. I had a bulghar salad with eggplant. We also had a plate of olives and dark draft beer. Delicious. And the service was perfect.

Worst service ever! We waited more than an hour for our food and when we asked for it we got an arrogant answer while the neighbor table which came 30 minutes after us got served.

The atmosphere is great and the cocktails are strong and fairly priced at around €10 each. However the food is a huge disappointment. The menu choice is tiny for such a prominent restaurant. The steak I had was very poor quality - overly fatty and...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
