We came to Amsterdam recently for a weekend. We stumbled across cafe tabac by accident having tried to go to another bar which was too busy.
We loved this place and was the higlight of the bars we visited (and we went to quite a few!).
Bar staff were super friendly, and we got table service. Music complete mix of classics.
We ended the night dancing with everyone else left in the bar. Such fun and definitely will return. Thanks Cafe Tabac!

Discovered Tabac about 5 years ago when I first started going to Amsterdam and return every time. Staff is friendly and they make a good mojito. When it's nice outside, you can sit around the corner overlooking the canal. Great place to pop in to get some bitterballen and other yummy bar snacks. Worth the trip!

Cafe Tabac is located in one of the nicest and most pittoresque neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. Next to it, two canals come together and you have a nice view of all the little enlighted bridges. During the evenings, the bar/restaurant gets quite busy but always sourrounded by a nice athmosphere. The food is rather plain and the 'borrelhappjes' (little snacks you enjoy while having a beer) defenitely not worth the money. Prices for drinks are fine and if the weather is nice, you can enjoy the sun outside on the terrace. The staff is always friendly and helpful - a rarity in Amsterdam! Defenitely worth a visit when in town.

Excellent place, nice people, nice music and the food is extraordinary for a café (especially in a'dam which is a dreamlike city, but not eatingwise ;)
