I discovered it because I stay often in the hotel next door and was surprised by the nice atmosphere and great food for a very reasonable price. A small informal restaurant with 3 menus to choose from. We tasted two of them and they were both excellent.

A visit to Amsterdam docklands worth stopping here and have a coffee or a beer. A quiet environment with no tourists. A friendly and professional care of an old barman

Cosy Dutch gastro pub with a lot of history to it. 100 years ago it also already was a bar. Not much has changed, so it seems.

Not the best place in Zeeburg to have a beer, unless you are a smoker. These guys will sometimes allow smokers to smoke inside. For all you nonsmokers, like myself, I prefer the Kantine just down the street.

We stayed at the Lloyd Hotel next to this restaurant and I had a great night here and had very good food. The historic building was very attractive. Highly recommended!
