A lovely and long standing traditional cafe / bar amongst a slew of more touristy bars. Well worth the visit. Barman greets everyone coming in and tales orders from the table. Candles on the table give a cosy feel when it’s dark outside. Good range...More

A real great bar with a lot of history. Service is excellent with a good number of draft beers and of course the well-known 'bitterballen'. Their agenda shows a new exhibition each month and on each thrid Sunday poetry.

Candlelit tables made this bar seem very cozy. Many of the patrons seemed to know each other or the bartender.

The service is poor and they dont have a menu for dinner as advertised. Only finger food of low quality. The barman was hopeless and he was the only one to serve. Didn't seem keen to get our business. Dont waste time here

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
