Good choice in drinks (multiple beers, tasteful wine), food had excellent taste for a good price. Great service; quick at bringing foods/drinks, and quick at re-order when glasses are empty. Will definitely return here!

The food here is not bad, but the menu is not very big. We went there at about 7pm and ordered 4 pieces of lamb. Turned out that there was only one piece left.. At 7pm! And to make it worse... It was served cold....More

Had a snack on an week evening. Place was not to crowded, but the music was rather loud, but maybe that is considered normal in Amsterdam. Enjoined a Kale Burger which was very good price/quality, but pasta of the day a little bit less appreciated....More

Delicious food, superior service - beyond brilliant. Four beers on tap, sweetest tunes on the sound system. I spent a few hours here soaking up the pleasant ambient friendly atmosphere.

We had a late lunch of sandwiches. The staff was friendly. The portions were perfect for lunch. The sandwiches were tasty. The only issue was that smokers sat on the patio with the doors open, right next to us.

Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag
through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp
Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s
many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic
thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in
search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly
half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners
and a good number of them are students. Here you'll

Café Kale de Grote restaurant right on Amsterdam’s charming Marie Heinekenplein is an eaterie of two parts. Inside, the ambience is subdued and antique, with brown walls, low beamed ceilings, lamps hanging just over the bar and tables, blackboard specials, book-lined walls, candlelight, wooden floors, seating and tables, and a general air of relaxation and cosiness. Outside, the feel is lively, with an acre of wooden tables and chairs under scarlet umbrellas spreading over the square in the bright sunshine. This is a fine place for light meals like filled rolls and tortilla wraps, salads and pasta dishes, and full meals from the daily specials board. Groups are well catered for in this large restaurant with their own attractively-priced menus including dishes like light tomato soup with basil and croutons, grilled entrecote of beef with soy, sesame, shiitake sauce, and warm tart tatin with vanilla ice cream.
