We didn't eat anything, just had a couple of local beers, but the atmosphere was very chill. We sat at a table outside and the combination between the jazz music from inside and the nice & quiet street gave us a really good vibe. It was perfect for our last few hours in Amsterdam.

The service was a little 'functional' until after we were about to leavel and after we left a 10% tip at which point the owner/waiter became more chatty. Pity. The food is good, not exceptional. I'll probably try another restaurant than go back.

Amazing place to have a lunch. I really enjoyed Caesar salad, but it was bigger than I expected. Relaxing atmosphere, good light music, friendly staff.

Nice place, good location (between Heineken Experience and Van Gogh Museum). We had to wait 45 min to eat, but the burger was fine!

Just passing and the menu looked interesting so we went in. Staff were very friendly and the food was great in fact one of us thought it was the best burger they'd ever had! Good vegetarian choice and the homemaid fries were excellent. We stayed until they closed up having had a great evening.

Hit up this place for lunch after the museum. Has an indorr/outdoor vibe and can imagine how great and busy the "patio" would be all opened up in the summer time! Caesar salad was large and tasty although the chicken was a touch dry, but the dressing balanced it nicely. The sausage in a bun was filled with different (probably... More

We thought this restaurant looked lovely so found a table and looked at the menu. The waiter came over to take our order for drinks and was very rude and abrupt when taking our order. I then told him my daughter had a nut allergy but he said he didn't understand so I showed him this written down in Dutch.... More

Really great breakfast place. Our orders varied from eggs to cheese board to dry sausage, and they were all tasty. Staff very friendly. Pretty venue, you can just sit there staring at the buzz going on outside

De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets.

Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
