After we had used the toilet at this cafe and ordered a beer, it appeared that we were not welcome at this bar. In vain, we tried to ask the owner what was wrong. Out of the blue, one of our friends got slapped in the face by someone from the personnel, the owner and his family yelled the worst diseases at me and called me a prostitute. My boyfriend got pushed against the wall and we got threatened. Our friends still don't understand what the cause of this aggressive behavior was, so out of precaution: do not go there!

We were told be an insider this is where the 'appelgebak' taste best - and it was. We enjoyed it and a lovely coffee to o with it. Typical Dutch. Dankie.

A good choice of quality beers in one of the oldest pubs in Amsterdam. Full of character. Barman interested in his customers and happy to hold conversation with you. Excellent location away from main tourist area and great for having a nice quiet drink away from hustle and bustle of city centre. Glad we visited.

We were taken here by a Amsterdam-living Belgian who had promised us an experience. Its co-incidentally the oldest pub in Jordaan but that wasn't the reason we came. Its quietly sited on the junction of a couple of canals and has an extremely pleasant atmosphere for sampling a cold beer or a home made snack. Well worth a visit.

Supposedly the oldest pub in town. Friendly barman, reasonable beers (though not on tap - too much genero-lager for me). Definitely a local's pub, despite the tourist appeal
