We had a very tasty lunch on a week day between work at this restaurant. We opted for soup and a nice big sandwich. Everything was very tasteful, staff friendly and welcoming.

We truly enjoyed the food. All the servers were nice with us. We enjoyed it so much that we also tried, even though we were staying at another hotel, to take the breakfast buffet here. It was delicious.

Maybe this is a symptom of Dutch dinner food itself, but we both found this to be good, but lackluster. Nothing really standout about the meal other than the friendly service. I had a prawn pasta type dish, while she had the Dutch steak. They...More

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
