Was there on a dinner out in November. The location is lovely, it should be beautiful in the summer, overlooking the canal. Food was good, I had an excelent tuna tataki. Beer selection is good

Beautiful setting on the canal. We went in October when it was starting to get chilly, but they had heaters for the seating area to keep you warm. Normal range of drinks offered at a decent price.

It was a slow Sunday evening with most people just having drinks. We sat to order. The outside was only about 40% occupied. We finally were asked for drinks but it took multiple tries to get our dinner ordered. The steak arrived medium rare not the medium where we had reinforced level of cooking. It was returned but still not... More

Sunny Saturday and very crowded. Positive aspects are the friendly stuff and the quick service. It may take some time before finding a place (we were 4), but it is worth as the location is great and again, service is more than good. Not 5* just because it felt a bit like being sardines in a can, but again, it... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We were looking for something quiet and 'gezellig' by the canals. After searching for a while we decided to go with Annie's mostly for its location and menu. The service was friendly and prompt but the food/drink left much to be desired. My wife ordered an espresso which... More

Watch the boats pass by right next to you while enjoying some ok food. Food is just that : Ok. But the atmosphere compensates. We visit this place regularly for a drink and a small snack.

The location is very nice but that's the only thing this place has got to offer. Staff was very uninterested. Neither of us ate more than half a serving as nobody was enjoying the food.

After dinner (elsewhere), we sat down on the floating terrace. It was busy and had a good atmosphere. The drinks were in order and reasonably priced, considering the location. The staff is correct, but that's all there is to say, they could be more friendly.

Thank Brigitte_1977
