Called on spec for a bite of lunch - friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Meatballs were really tasty and the salmon steak was declared delicious by my wife. Decent house red too. :)

Stopped in here to grab a little lunch. First, they don’t offer free water they want you to pay for it which is ridiculous. The wife had a pancake with bacon...she says it’s OK not great. In my opinion there are better choices out there.

Visited this great cafe with a small group of friends. We were served some really nice food by a really friendly waitress. I’d recommend this as a great place to eat.

We found this place by accident, just walking by, but it was a great find. Sitting outside along the street added to the experience! We were kindly welcomed and enjoyed eating Dutch pancakes for the first time! YUM!!! Excellent service!

We had savoury pancakes and it was delicious. Service was average and it is nicely located. It was a good stop for a quick lunch.

Astounded the Manager still said we needed to pay even though we had only one mouthful of each dish. Please do not go to this cafe/restaurant they operate by knowing that tourists will probably not return so have no concerns about the food they serve...More

We had pannekoken and beer. Not great, not bad. Frankly I think one can do better in this part of the Jordaan, but if you're looking for a quick bite with a view, you could do worse.

A couple of beers after supper. Small bar with good relaxed atmosphere. Limited seletion of beers. Staff good. Music varied but mosyly ok. Didnt eat but the food looked good.

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
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
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.
