We were looking for somewhere nice for our final meal in Amsterdam and found this restaurant on a quite bridge quite close to Dam Square. We were lucky as it was a sunny day and we were able to site outside on the bridge and...More

The cafe location is amazing. Food is a bit overpriced. I had spring rolls which tasted great. Overall you can give it a try. The location is quite good. Service could be a bit better as you have to wait for someone for a while...More

Nice food, but a limited range on offer. The beef stew I had was amazing. Located not far from Dam Square thus cafe is fairly central.

Go with the majority view on this; very pleasant location on a sunny evening for people watching. Menu not exciting, but seems fairly typical in the area; Classic burger is a good meal, all the ingredients are right. Staff friendly and efficient

This place is not one that will stand out in your memory, at least that was the way with me. Burgers, beef stew shrimp all good.

Nice little eatery. It is true, Amsterdam is not sure of places to eat and drink so a place needs to be spectacular to stand out.... This cafe is not spectacular. However, the staff are pleasant and food was well presented and tasty. Can't complain....More

It was so good when we ate there last year that we went back again this year. Located about 2 1/2 blocks off Dam Square on the way to the Ann Frank House, the heavy foot traffic running outside makes for great people-watching. We split...More

Food is very nice. Go for the spinach quiche with almonds and get the apple pie for desert. Inside is more intimate and quite but sitting on the on top of the canal beige is hard to miss.

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
