I visited Amsterdam in September with my boyfriend and I read about Coffee and Jazz on the Lonely Planet guide which lists this restaurant as $ (i.e. cheap place to eat). How wrong it was!
It is literally a Tourist Trap as someone who reviewed it below has described it.
When we sat we were not provided with a menu. There was an Indonesian lady who verbally described the menu. There were only two starters and two main courses (or maybe three, I don t remember exactly). So we ordered a bottle of water and 2 glass of wines, two starters and two main courses. THE BILL WAS 90 EURO. The bottle of water alone was 6 euro (not even in London where I live and is one of the most expensive cities in the world I ever paid the equivalent of 6 euro for a bottle of water). Between no receipt but only a piece of paper on which the lady noted the orders.
The place itself is nice and the owner (I think he was the owner at least) an eccentric guy. There was an old piano but no live music. Food was good but if those are the prices, the least they can do is provide customers with a menu or VERBALLY clarify the prices. I want to specify that the only reason why we didn't ask prices when ordering was that Lonely Planet listed it as a cheap place to eat and that, NORMALLY, if a restaurant doesn't provide menus it indicates that it has average prices. By the way I learnt my lesson ... ALWAYS ask for prices first.
