Helpful staff as we entered. Food very ordinary pub food. None of the four of us felt the menu quite described what arrived. Beer was of course good, but a very ordinary meal. Food seemed almost a grudging afterthought in this pub.

Perfect spot to take a seat for a few beers and bitterballen. We already had a booking for a restaurant but otherwise would have definitely stayed on for dinner. Burgers looked delicious. Lovely vibe on a Saturday afternoon.

Great place to have some drinks or food. The menu offers affordable dishes. Hospitable friendly staff. Cosy interior. We came in for drinks, but, tempted by the atmosphere and menu on the wall ordered some food as well.

A real gem of a place - welcoming, cosy atmosphere and very friendly and attentive staff. Food was absolutely delicious; it was cooked to perfection and had a real home made feel about it. Would thoroughly recommend.

Came for a late-ish glass of wine - was a quiet evening, lovely atmosphere and decor, nice service, good wine, good prices! Great spot for looking out at the pretty streets - imagine in the summer the outside area must get very busy and fun!

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
