Stumbled upon this place after wandering for 20 minutes looking for options to eat, and what a great find it was! Awesome Irish / New American cuisine in a trendy atmosphere. I appreciated several vegetarian options on the menu. I had tomato cream soup and the vega burger, and both were delicious. My partner had a regular burger which he loved. Very reasonably priced. Service was spectacular - only possible way that I can ding it is that it was a bit slow since the waiters were spread thin, but our waiter was extremely nice and professional. Came by several time to make sure we liked our food. Best part was that owner of the Tara came by to check on us several times during dinner and then offered us a free drink at the end of dinner (we opted for limoncello). We loved the overall ambiance and service. Would definitely recommend to anyone in Amsterdam in search of a good meal at a reasonable price (and in a great location)!

We knew to enter when we saw the fresh herbs hanging in the window. Outstanding entrees of salmon and duck. Exceptional service.

Next door to the Bierfabriek this bar has outside seating where you can enjoy the sun and unfortunately the continuing road works. However the food is good and the little table flower arrangements show they want to make their customers happy regardless of the road works. A good menu is available for lunch.

good spot to stop and have something to eat and drink after a visit to the museums in Museumplein. Nice deck area if the weather's good.

This place is really quite a visual treat, and the food's pretty good. It's pretty large, with a nice array of different seating areas; from modern football cheering bar to quiet(er) fireside conversation area. The food was pretty good-tomato soup was excellent, the caesar salad was good, but nothing special. The service was quite good, however-so overall, it's a great place to plop down, have lunch or a drink, use the free wifi, and hang for a bit. I would definitely go back.
