Description: We love food, every second, every minute and every hour we think about food. Eating shouldn't be done only three times a day. We like to eat all day long. That is why our kitchen is open till late in the evening. In our kitchen we don't differentiate between starters and main courses. Just order what you like and if you want to eat more, you order another dish. Our kitchen combines the best of different international cuisines, using classic and avant-garde culinary techniques. Did we mention we love food? Hmmmm.... However we might love our drinks even more! The variety in drinks is so big, that nobody should stick to one drink in their life. At T&S we offer you a wide variety of spirits which all have their own story. We like to introduce you to new flavor combinations in our drinks and tell you the tale of the spirits which come together in your glass.

“One drink, one story”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Hidden spot behind Dam square with nice atmosphere, friendly staff and drinks based on famous, funny stories - served in form of drinks and written on walls. Splish Splash with Ken in our bathtub glass made this passion fruit cocktail one amazing experience, definitely a place for fun-loving minds on nice spring and summer night ;)

“So much fun!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

On the recommendation from a colleague I booked a reservation at this restaurant for an evening with friends, full of great expectations. We were not disappointed! The staff was so friendly and fun! And the food just delicious!!! We also really loved the signature cocktails. The only minus was the acoustics, as it was quite noisy, but not surprising as even on a Thursday evening fully packed! Will for sure come again!

“a fun visit!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Thanks for other TA travelers, we went to Tales and Spirits during our trip to Amsterdam. The drinks were suburb, the staff were welcoming and every single drink is served with a story to go along with it! They even won a trophy for their story telling. It gets packed here and we weren't able to try their food since we didn't make reservations and it only has like 4 tables, however the bar is awesome-we'll be back asap!
