We went here twice during our stay as it was near where we were staying, for breakfast and dinner. We all loved the food both times. There was a really nice waitress there each time, I thought the service was good.

This unassuming neighborhood bistro serves a great cheese fondue with fresh fruit, crusty bread, and crisp vegetables to dip, along with a side salad and tasty french fries. It is enough to share. And the chocolate fondue for dessert was tasty, too. It was so much fun, we had to return a week later. (Note: only available for dinner)

We tried this place a couple of times during this trip. We tried it during our last stay in Dam. It's a locals place and tourist seem to get ignored and you need to get the waiter/waitress' attention. They seem a little put out when you ask for an "English Menu". Takes a long time to get drinks and other... More

Two of us went for dinner around 8 pm. We sat down at an outside table and waited about 15 minutes for our server to take our drink order. We asked for menus so she went inside to get them only to give them to another table of customers who had just sat down. We had to ask another server... More

Monster sandwich. Must try and under $10 euro. Service can be a little slow, but food is fresh and hot.

Nice, casual, good value lunch. It was very quiet when we ate there (at 12 o'clock) which was a little off putting at first. The service was OK but the sandwiches we had were delicious. There was a cat in the restaurant which we didn't mind but I do know a lot of people that wouldn't be too happy with... More

Stopped here as it is near the Tropenmuseum. Had a selection of snacks including Bitterballen and a good sandwich. Great selection of draught beers, we tasted two and were not disappointed. Good value for money and a homely yet vibrant place.

We had a suprising sandwich for lunch. Friendly service and authentic atmosphere. There's a housecat in stead of doorman staring at you when you enter

We visited twice for food and drinks as it was directly opposite our hotel. The place itself is lovely, I loved the décor and the friendly little cat we'd often see walking around. However service was a bit slow and the food could've been a bit better, we preferred it the second time when we just went for drinks and... More
