Stopped here every day on way to centre. Nice old world decor , very relaxing atmosphere, nice music. I especially liked their apple pie. If you fancy a peaceful snack in pleasant surroundings you can do a lot worse than this place

We arrived here for a welcome pit stop and sat outside on the bridge enjoying the views. The menu is pretty basic with sandwiches and pub grub. We had the chicken wings and a tuna sandwich. The service was good with a busy atmosphere.

Weekend break in Amsterdam & found this place by chance, then kept going back! Seats outside overlooking the canal. Wide choice of beers served by friendly efficient staff. What's not to like. Away from the tourist areas as well, worth seeking out!

Good food (tomato soup, beef croquettes, lox sandwich), friendly service. We had our almost-2-year-old with us and the staff were very attentive and understanding.

The barman was on his period and the beer tasted like his mum. He put the beer down on the table then made us put them on coasters ourself. Rude as hell.

Excellent food, good service once we were inside, but too slow for our liking outside. Very nice, fresh beer too. Highly recommended after a visit to the Reypenaer Tasting Room

The restaurant itself is nothing to look at, but it has tables on a bridge overlooking the canal, and it's a great place to hang out, have a beer and food. We were there at lunchtime, had nice sandwiches and very tasty fries.

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
