To be honest, Players is not the sort of place we'd normally go to eat, but on a wet Saturday evening, we decided to give it a whirl despite being at least 20 years older than everyone else in the place. We're really glad we did.

My steak was superbly cooked just to my liking (between mooing and pink), and my partner's coq au vin rich, tasty and bursting with flavour. The young waitress was attentive and polite and welcoming, and overall we were delighted to have found such good food (and merlot) in such unexpected surroundings.

Three Aussies, 70, 68 and son 40. Arrived on Saturday 23 Nov at Centraal with three big suitcases. Police lady at the station said to take a tram, 16 or 24 and get off at the Heineken Brewery. Should have taken 1,2 or 5!!! Dragged cases for seemingly miles to our hotel, checked in and, desperate for lunch about 3PM, found Players. Had a much needed wine, Ricotta Ravioli with sage and butter sauce, hamburger and croquettes on brown bread. Food was fabulous, staff delightful and Sauvignon Blanc most enjoyable. All this at a high bar table.
Our son went off to do his own thing so, after a lovely canal cruise the next day, my wife and I returned for early dinner in the more formal area. Most charming service and delightful food again. Not so busy on Sunday night and the manager/owner?? sat and chatted for ages.
Prices are reasonable, couldn't fault the meal and highly recommend.

We came back to Players several times. Once for just drinks on the patio & people watching. The second time for dinner. Both experiences were great, service was A+ and they also have free wifi!

Definitely a nice, relaxing spot for drinks with friends on your vacation!!
