Three friends and I had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is on a lively street yet is quiet. The music selection and general ambience are excellent and we all agreed the food was delicious!

Even though there are other places popular by their apple pie I believe this is THE ONE. Homemade and locally baked your pie is tall full of delicious apples and the right amount of cinnamon Not busy and family run

Stumbled across this fabulous little pub and eatery when we were here 18 months ago, and managed to find it again. Great service and the most delicious croquettes.

We had a good time in this bar, cold beers, La Chauffe's and normal ones. Upstairs the sounds are a bit amplified when really busy but the staff tries to be up there as much as possible to take your orders. Meals are good, cheese...More

I've lived here 14 years and remember how terrible service used to be here. Thankfully, the service sector has improved leaps and bounds. But sometimes, you find that attitude of "we're doing you a favor". This was one of those places. A friend visiting from...More

A very cozy pub in the heart of Jordaan. Definitely worth to visit if you are in the neighborhood. We were lucky enough to sit in the sun on the terrace. An extensive beer list with a wide range of draft beers. I went for...More

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.

Blaffende vis is `one of nicest and busiest matter of Amsterdam, where eating `can price/quality proportion be terribly nice. For a cafe an excellent assessment of spontaneousness and hospitality! A café in the Jordaan that timeless and comfortable. A happening.
