We have chose that cafe because it looks very authentic and promising but we had to wait to be served for pretty long time and it seems that the staff just do not pay much attention on people who are waiting at the empty tables....More

My wife and I recently were fortunate to enjoy a two week home exchange on the Singel canal, just a short 5 minute walk from Cafe van Zuylen. This place became our default lunch/bite and beer joint after a morning or afternoon of touring Amsterdam....More

We decided to call into Café van Zulen as the menu had something for everyone. The range is excellent with some typical dutch offerings, I have croquets which where filled with ham and cheese and the beer selection was good with very friendly staff.

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
