The staff was not very friendly. They don’t welcome you or even give you a little smile. Feels like you are just a bother for them. Location is ok but feels very touristy

Sidewalk Cafe serving fresh, healthy food. Service was fairly fast for a busy time. Beer was good also.

Stopped in after sightseeing for Bitterballen and Beers. Not disappointed. It was very crowded with an afterwork crowd, but the server was attentive and we got served very fast. Really had the feel of a classic Dutch brown bar.

Our Dutch friends took us this bar. It was such a treat! Best bitterballen I think you can find in Amsterdam!

Good place to sit and watch the world pass by. Try and get a table along the road or a row back, order a beverage and relax. Service is very good, we only had drinks but the food looked good too.

I like the place regarding atmosphere and possibility to have more types of beer. You can taste and enjoy the old pub style.

With one of my friends it’s tradition to have white wine and bitterballen. Love the atmosphere and the staff of this great café in the city centre of Amsterdam.

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
