The food at Mashua is incredible! I have returned here several years in a row, and since my first visit in 2013, has always offered a delicious menu, awesome service, and if you get to sit outside in the summer you get to see the world pass you by on the canal! An Amsterdam must!

We had a nice little lunch here waiting for our room to get ready. The waitor was friendly and was always close by our table when we needed something. We had Bitterball, a pumpkin soup and a beef sandwich. It all tasted good allthough the soup lacked some crunchieness. Nice location, and we guess even greater when it's warmer and... More

Stumbled across this place while walking with a friend. Booked a table for about 8 and everyone was pleased with the food. The ceviche was amazing. Would go back if in that area again.

We had a steak and chicken sandwich. Both were excellent. Steak had onions with a special sauce. The chicken was amazing, had avocado, cucumber, lettuce, egg and some chipotle sauce. Would definitely go back!

Tasty treat in the heart of Amsterdam. Get proper fresh ceviche that will take your breath away, quench your thirst with some delicious Pisco sour and feast on the starters combo with another person if you want to try a bit of everything. Service tends to be a bit slow in the busy periods, keep this in mind.

Chaos reigns supreme here, understaffed by inattentive waiters who have no idea of what good service is. Having to shout "excuse me" to the waiter who's passed your table for the 6th time (staring at the floor while doing so), wasn't a great start. A quiet Wednesday night saw a 30 minute wait for a starter, followed by forgotten drinks... More

The seven of us came to Mashua to celebrate an occasion. Some of us are Dutch, some are Americans, some are from the other lands. Unfortunately, the food was partially served and we had to check on the status ourselves. Hour and a half later the food was still not on the horizon, no apology either. Apparently the kitchen just... More
