Our first visit to Amsterdam and while searching for somewhere to have dinner we stumbled upon this restaurant, the restaurant looked cosy from the outside, quite rustic with lovely candles but inside it wasn't very warm and we sat with coats on. The food was quite pricey for what you got and really could have done with some garnish and... More

I was surprised to read such mixed reviews for a restaurant that we really enjoyed! We only went in as we had been struggling to find a toilet on the busy shopping street (having no coins at the time!) We were so glad we did as we got a delicious, hearty lunch of soup and toasted sandwiches. I was pleased... More

I stopped in this restaurant for breakfast, with my girlfriend and a couple of friends since it looked full of people. Unfortunately we almost immediately regret our decision. Both the staff an the food are remarkably low quality.

Came here for lunch before returning home from a long weekend in Amsterdam. Was made to feel really unwelcome. One waitress was polite and helpful the other was rude and arrogant. The food was hot but overpriced for what you get portions aren't great. Plenty of other places about where you aren't made to feel a burden.

Stopped for a bite to eat before leaving Amsterdam. Worst place to fall into. Didn't feel welcome from moment we walked in. Food was average at best. Not much room inside. Decided to quickly pay and leave as a big group came in and tried to squeeze in behind us. Just wanted to get out of here.

This is a rustic and beautifully decorated and cozy place with good food and delicious coffee. The waffles are amazing! We come back here every year on our annual New Year's trip to Amsterdam

I visited here with my partner in December on our weekend break. Nice variety on the menu: pancakes, burgers, toasties etc. I had a burger and chips which was really tasty, good portion sizes. Partner also enjoyed his meal which was pancakes with bacon and cheese. Staff friendly and attentive, only thing was it was very busy when we went,... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
