“We had a really good meal here.”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

My experience her was a very good one. Because of its very central location I was expecting the worst.
In reality the food was very good indeed and well presented and at a reasonable price.The atmosphere was calm and serene.We returned twice and had the same good experience.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality here and the price.

“Really disappointing food”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

This café is located close to the large museums at Museumplein. The interior is ok, but the food was very disappointing. We had a sandwich and a salad, and both were tasteless and sappy. The staff was a bit inattentive.

“Nice location bad food”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

I went here with my wife for a meal thinking it would be really good because of the location but I was very wrong! I would have thought that a restaurant in the heart of museumplein would have been a lot better. My wife's meal was really salty and when she mentioned it to waitress she didn't seem to be too bothered but then when we paid the guy at the bar (because it took ages to get the bill at the table) he also wasn't bothered at all. We weren't looking for a discount or anything like that but just more to let them know but we were just dismissed, twice! And they weren't even very busy. Horrible place with horrible staff!

“Nice lunch option at a good location”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We sat outside on a beautiful Summer's day, while watching the crowd go by at the Rijksmuseum square. Food was decent and considering the location, was surprisingly pretty well-priced. Lunch menu is pretty standard but I was merely after a simple kalfsvleeskroketten met brood (veal croquets with bread) and had a satisfying meal.
Unfortunately we sat next to smoking guests whose cigarette smoke kept blowing in our 7 month old baby's direction. Nothing you could do about that I suppose, so we left quite quickly after we had finished our meals.

“Nice location, average food and service”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The place is located where you would want it to be in the southern part of the centre of Amsterdam just opposite the Concertgebouw and close to the Rijksmuseum. The place is fairly big so reservations are probably needed. We had slow service and half of us had very average food while the others were happy with startters and ok with mains. It is quite expensive certainly if you consider the quality. Check the bill because we did not get dishes that we ordered but they were on the bill (and not a word of apology also not for the dish spilled over trousers)
