My wife and I came here for drinks for 2 nights out of our 3 night break. We come to this bar every year as it is so good. It is in the best location in Amsterdam, has excellent service, excellent music and great atmosphere.

The breakfast and the beer here was nice and reasonably priced for the area. But it's all about the atmosphere. The cafe is beautifully located on a leafy corner in the north of Jordaan. The interior is beautifully preserved (or rather distressed as it's not...More

We thought we'd try the nachos having seen a bowl looking good in passing. But there's a staggered menu schedule and no nachos before 4pm! This is a friendly place; everything is a bit worn and frayed. Service was pretty slow but staff were friendly....More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow

quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
