A lovely atmospheric "pub"close to Dam Square where you can get a good basic selection of hot food to suit the time of day. Good coffee, hot chocolate, or beers are all available in warm comfy surroundings where you can take some time out from...More

Stoped by my walk around, friendly staff, quick service, prices are not bad. Lots of outdoor seating, today is windy so they have the shades pulled in. Add to your quick stop places, or sit back and have a beer.

Sat here early evening watching the world go by. Only had drinks which were reasonably priced, we have been ripped off in some of the cafes in the square so we're pleasantly surprised.

A place where you can have a nice beer near the dam square. It is pleasant to sit outside and watch the bikes that cross the street.

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
