In a very central location with outside seating. The food was very good and so was the service. We had salad and would recommend this.

Food was good, friendly service and good atmosphere. Restaurant was busy when we passed by so tried it after a tiring walking tour. Burger, lamb and salad were all good and large portions. Waiter was very friendly to. Generally good.

Located on Spui, it's a great location to watch people, get a drink and have a good meal. Right next to Hoppe and overlooked.

Stopped here and had great fish and chips. Staff friendly, good for people watching. Prices reasonable for where it is in the centre of Amsterdam.

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
