Nice little eatery. It is true, Amsterdam is not sure of places to eat and drink so a place needs to be spectacular to stand out.... This cafe is not spectacular. However, the staff are pleasant and food was well presented and tasty. Can't complain....More

Visited Cafe van Zulen for a beer and a burger, a friday afternoon. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. We got no surpriser. The service was fair enough, and the burger decent. Seems to be a safe, although not very exciting stop. A decent meal in a...More

It was so good when we ate there last year that we went back again this year. Located about 2 1/2 blocks off Dam Square on the way to the Ann Frank House, the heavy foot traffic running outside makes for great people-watching. We split...More

Food is very nice. Go for the spinach quiche with almonds and get the apple pie for desert. Inside is more intimate and quite but sitting on the on top of the canal beige is hard to miss.

I slowly grew to enjoy Bitterballen at this place. Other than that, the caprese panini was just ok. Front patio area is a nice spot to drink a beer. Honestly, it's Amsterdam.. you'll find a million spots just like this.

Dutch pub food with Grolsh on tap. Cool vibe and a local hangout. A tad spendy for food. Cheese nachos were about $9. A little overpriced.

If you want breakfast, brunch or just enjoy a beer while view a canal that is a place to visit. They offer Grolsch and ask for the flutes or the smallest serving size. It's refreshing, yummy and if the day is sunny I can't imagine...More

This is a true Dutch pub. Most of the customers were Dutch. The food was excellent. The service was FRIENDLY and helpful - a great asset in Amsterdam. It is a few minutes walk from the Anne Frank house and near many of the main...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
