Nice laid back feel, candle-lit tables in the evening, somewhere that doesn't feel like a tourist-trap and isn't too big. Nice casual snacking menu as well as sandwiches and more for lunch. Canal-side location, recommended.

Wandered into this place because of the cat sitting in a chair in the bar. Had a great lunch in the restaurant portion. Super food and excellent service. Only place we ate in Amsterdam that we went back again. Had dinner there on Thursday night - loved the loud energetic atmosphere, and again the food and service did not disappoint.

So we wandered in because it was an easy location, and it said burgers... ended up having the best pasta meal... smoked salmon with Parmesan and capers ... came back the next night for a repeat! Wife’s burger was quote “best I’ve ever had”. Great food, good prices, and yes, a cat sleeping nearby..

We stopped here for lunch and shared our table with a sleeping cat. The food was ok, as well as the service.

If you feel like a nice lunch and a beer with a sunny day don't sit down on the terrace of this restaurant. After sitting down it took some time before any of the staff noticed us. After we ordered drinks we had a look at the lunch menu. When the drinks came to our table either the waitress didn't like us or didn't liked here job, no smiles or greeting what so ever. Drinks where almost thrown on the table. I ordered a BLT sandwich, it should be with baked bacon. When i got the sandwich i got raw pork bacon on the sandwich. after asked on very nicely way if it could be baked, the answer was: No this is how we always do it so we can't do this. I could be crazy but i never got unbaked bacon on a sandwich. The whole situation and the reaction of the staff reacting like i was crazy made me feel very unpleasant. After asking a different staff member he said this should always be baked I don't understand why you got it like this. There are so many places in Amsterdam I would for sure chose a different one. A Shame.
