Great selection of beers to enjoy. We sat outside and watched the world go by with a few beers and a Dutch cheese plate to share. A choice of 3 cheeses, rye bread, crackers and a delicious apple sauce - a good choice!

Amsterdam is expensive, but this place is ridiculous! We paid over €8 for one standard pint of beer, basically double what it should cost, even in a pricey city. We sat outside and were shocked at how lazy the staff were and how dirty the...More

Managed to get some vegan bitterballen here which were really tasty. Lots of good bar food. Service was friendly but quite slow. Fine for a lazy afternoon though.

We sat outside on the bridge watching the world go buy. We ordered smoothies, beer and a snack plate (traditional dutch bar snacks). The bitteballen were lovely and the cheese sticks were loved by the children. Everything was nice, well presented and and reasonably priced.

Bright with large windows onto the canal this is a buzzing place with good coffee and a small but appetising menu.

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
