“A GREAT place to hang w/Friends!”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

This cafe is in a perfect location in Amsterdam!!! Just close enough to Centraal Station, shopping and the center of town!!! It is also close by to my family!!! So, whenever I am in Amsterdam it is a must to go there to meet up with friends and even hear some live music!!! The service is always good and the tapas selection has something for everyone!!! If you come to Amsterdam you should make a stop before shopping on Haarlem Straat!!! #travel #FOJ

“Nice live jazz sessions on Sunday evenings”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

It wouldn't make the difference to any other Dutch pub without the jazz evenings every Sunday (from 4 till 7). That is the strongest point of this bar to me.

Other than that the food is just fine, typical Dutch snacks, sandwiches and so on. Drinks are also the usual beers offered in draught on any regular bar.

“Apartment attached fab!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

A group of 8 girls stayed for the weekend. The apartment is on the 4th floor and the staircases are very steep but if you can manage it. It's worth it. The apartment is situated in the city centre about 2 mins walk from the station. It is beautifully furnished, with towels and hair dryer supplied, which helps with the packing. Jan the host was fantastic, giving us great direction and support when dealing with him in the uk, but also answering questions and offering advice on places to visit, eat, etc, via e mail, over the free wifi provided the apartment. Great value for money, and having the cafe underneath you always have somewhere to end your night. We absolutely loved the city and the apartment and are already planning another trip.

“Too cool to fool”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

Nice central pub that served overpriced food. Trouble was that they didn't seem to keen on people over 25 judging from the attitude of the staff and customers.
