Food good. Drinks expensive. Charged us dinner prices for lunchtime. Had to go back twice before they admitted it. Big show of how they couldn't understand how it happened, despite computerised system and experienced staff! My advice - avoid!

Things that make me happy in Amsterdam: terrace with a view, sunshine, good menu and great staff. Guess that this is the place to be. The staff chatted with every guest, very warm. The food was good too. Extra plus, very near Anne Frank House.

Only had afternoon snacks and beers here, but service couldn't have been more friendly and relaxed. Excellent spot on a sunny day to sit right on a canal and watch the world go by. Ahhhh...

The food was really good and the service friendly. The restaurant has a nice terrace right by the Leliegracht canal.
