A friend of ours while driving us around insisted we check out this pub because of history and a lot of character. Really worth coming here. The place was buzzing with people chatting away-no music to disturb conversation which might include the digging of a...More

Just arrived in Amsterdam and found this cozy nook of a pub. The bartender was very helpful in recommending a local Jenever to try: VanWees Jonge. It was very smooth and icy cold. A real treat. The apple tart is also wonderful.

The Papeneiland Pub attracted our attention because of its many lights that were hanging from the ceiling. There's not a lot space inside but this makes it even more cosy. We only went there for drinks and the waitress made us feel welcome at once....More

Papeneiland Pub was just across Prinsengracht from our B&B and therefore the natural first choice to have a beer after late night arrival. As we felt very comfortable, we returned every night. Highly recommended!

Been here many times over the last dozen Years. Last here on a very hot August day. Greeted with a smile from Barmaid Babs and Owner Tiel. Just sit back enjoy a beer and Apple Pie and relax and enjoy the ambiance and History; bliss!

Ran Out of pie at night. GO here early and have breakfast. Good coffee. Bill Clinton buys two cakes and takes them home every time he comes here. Lots of locals hang out and read the paper.

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.
