“Another great meeting spot, just not for the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

It has a terrific location in the center of the city near Centraal Station, and the food is passable, but I wouldn't go back. We were disappointed and were just as happy to leave.

“Nice terrace, good wine list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Very nice terrace and bar with good wine list and a decent range of beers. Also great for a quick cup of coffee. Friendly, mixed crowd (cool kids, professionals and tourists alike).

“A GREAT place to hang w/Friends!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
