I was there on an lazy afternoon, for drinking an orange juice, which happened to have a big black fly in it. I didn't touch it, but asked kindly the bar man to change it for another drink if its possible. He got angry, and started to curse on turists, and asked me to "walk out"... So practicly i was kicked out becauce i was dare enough to mention a disgusting fly in my juice. However i can understand the local's anger against the turists, but when you are running a bar in the middle of the turistic area, sounds a little bit hypocrite to complain about them.
After the incident he left me there, and went out to smoke.
I packed my stuffs, and went out to him, mentioned silently im living in Amsterdam since years.
My only fault was that i was talking in English... this is ridiculous and complitely xenophobic!
For this and for the bad hygenic circumstance, i wouldn't recommend this place at all :/

This is a really typical and cute pub in front of two canals!
Good beers and warm atmosphere!
We didn't try anything to eat but beers were good and prices also good!

Its my local - very old, iconic and cosy Amsterdam café with great beer, on tap as well as bottled. Nice snacks - try the ultra dutch and delicious bitterballen. Right near the Noordermarkt. Worth a visit -its part of the culture.

This place is a fantastic location for people watching. It's at a busier bridge location and fun to watch the locals wiz by on their bikes or in their cars, nearly missing the walking pedestrians that aren't paying attention. The service and atmosphere inside are great too!

Loved this tiny bar. It was packed and very lively when we went in but got a bar seat and service was good and friendly

Locals and tourists in and all chatting to each other. Really nice atmosphere
