Stopped off here for a breakfast. The price was probably typical of most other breakfasts we had seen in Amsterdam. Service was good, food ok (could have done with a little more perhaps) and had we been staying longer might have tried dinner there.

The choice of restaurants in Amsterdam is superb but if you fancy ribs this is the place. For 19.95€ you get a great rack and the best bit - they just bring you more at no charge. Apparently the record is 9 racks but we...More

4 of us stopped to get a burger and drinks which seems easy enough. The server was completely lost. Ordered our drinks and waited and waited. This should have been a sign of what was to come. All of us ordered our food 4 burgers...More

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
