First stop after a long walk, great atmosphere and selection of beers. Just what we needed! Staff were helpful and the beer was cold.

It's a small and calm restaurant with low range of options, but with enough alternatives to satisfy everybody. Tradicional dutch snacks and plates, like meatball, soups, pancakes, toasts and sandwiches.

Have a seat outside, have a beer or coffee and a lunch and enjoy the activity around you. Located in the heart of old Amsterdam, the streetcar unloads people at that location. Cyclists, school children, mothers, workers all parade by. Lunch and snacks reasonably priced.

We stopped off here over lunch on a rainy day alongside a canal so the views were nice during lunch. A cosy atmosphere with homemade soup - the meatballs was a huge meatball! Welcoming service and good fare.

We ended up here on the way back to our hotel after a busy day in the city centre. The landlady was really nice, offering a great selection of drinks from her very nostalgic bar! Her roaming cat added to our visit as it strolled...More

An "Ooievaar' is a stork apparently, and I feel sure there must be a lovely story to this. Pity I did not find out at the time. As tourists we were staying a block away from Onder die Ooievaar and it became our "local". It...More
