Description: "Just moments away from Dam Square, Brasserie de Brakke Grond combines historic elements with a laid back contemporary ambience. No wonder that this is one of Amsterdam’s most favoured spots, day or night. The classic interior, with its sophisticated dark wood and black leather seating, green painted wood panelling and chrome beer taps plus tongue in cheek fireplace TV makes for a warm welcome any time of year. When the sun breaks out take a seat on the terrace to enjoy a cold beer or light meal. The seasonally changing menu is a delight giving diners a taste of Belgium right here in the Netherlands. Vegetarians are treated to imaginative specialities while meat and fish dishes are a joy. And don’t miss those waffles… "

I went there few times and each one service was EXTREMELY slow. You can wait to get served even up to 15 minutes while there's only 3-4 other tables! Moreover the quality of service killed me. I received DIRTY cuttlery, burger was literaly raw... Though I have to admit, that they are polite. Nothing special. Better save your time and energy for cooler places, who care more about people who come there.

Very friendly, great atmosphere and tasty snacks. We couldn't manage anything more than the tasting platter for two. Only a two minute walk away from Dam Square and it's so calm and relaxed. Definitely recommended.

Nice terras and nice location, however, slow staff and poor quality of croquettes (bread was good though, fresh and crispy).

Displays first night in Amsterdam, weary of travel, we arrived by chance to this restaurant that was close to our hotel for the purpose of a quick dinner and a formality before going to bed.
But lo and behold: a place with charm, delicious food, warm atmosphere and excellent reception memorable made ​​our first night in Amsterdam. Thank you!

This place is in the city center, yet far from the madding crowd:) set in a quiet cosy square it offers perfect setting to relax and have some great coffee (we didn't eat there). We could also see a free photography exhibition there, really nice one! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is kind of 'of bohemian nature'.
A minus would be the smell from the toilet - I guess it's not the only place with this problem, just sit away from WC and it's gonna be fine.
