The best meal we had in Amsterdam!! The sitting is very unique but comfortable especially after a long day of walking in the city. Good service. The meat was cooked to perfection.

The food was first class. Service to match. Very impressed will visit again. Un-assuming from the outside but extremely well later out inside. Attentive staff and good selection of drinks. Food served at the bar or on comfy seats on boards. Well thought out.

Not really child-friendly, certainly didn't notice a kids menu.
