I found this place last minute as I was returning to the metro. It looked appealing from the outside so I gave it a shot. The seating was a little cramped, but not uncomfortable. They maximized the space available. I had the chicken and mushroom penne and it was amazing. The beer is nice and cold and the food is... More

We traveled straight from the airport into the center so we're absolutely starving. When we saw pizza we thought it was an easy bet. Both ordered pizza with chips to share. In fairness, one pizza would do two people with side. But we were so hungry! Service was fast, pizzas were warm and clearly freshly made. Pizza quality was great,... More

My boyfriend and I ate here for breakfast 2 times on our visit in Amsterdam. I had an omelet one morning and the English Breakfast another. Both great dishes!

Dined here on Pizza and wine and the food was definitely above average. Reasonable service and couldn't really complain about anything in particular. Its exactly what you would expect from a pizza restaurant targeting Amsterdam tourists on a budget. Slightly better than the facade might advertise and serves a much needed place in the market, i.e.., pizza and wine on... More

Great restaurant food very good and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Stayed in Amsterdam for 5 days and went here twice for dinner. Very reasonably priced would go again if visiting Amsterdam again.

This is was our first stop in Amsterdam, the "Full English" breakfast is a let down, mushroom means one mushroom, the bacon was barely warmed. Priced fairly but wouldn't recommend for breakfast.

Location is great. Right on one of main streets across central station. Wether you are a mere passerby or wandering tourist this place with its location is right choice. The other, perhaps more important thing, is food. Simply great. The portions are also big so you can slowly enjoy in your food as you won't want to give it up.... More

came in for some food just after 10pm the service was great until the waiter snatched the menus from us all after placing our food order for whatever reason we don't know? Free wifi and decent food. Easy to find too.

Dined at this restaurant in 2015, the waiter was really nice and the food was both cheap and good. I was both surprised and delighted, an excellent meal after a day of walking Amsterdam. Would definitely visit again if I'm ever in Amsterdam again.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
