Came here because they were able to host a group of eight. The servers were upbeat and energetic. The food was DELICIOUS! We all had pannekoeken. Only downside was that the bathroom was out of soap, toilet paper and was dirty :(

We stopped here accidentally. It was pouring out. The place was packed with people for lunch so we figured it must be good. I had the best spaghetti Bolognese Ive ever had. The portion was huge. My fiancé had tomato soup and grilled cheese. He...More

If you want to eat the Dutch food that Dutch people eat, this is a good place to do so. The staff are attentive & the food is tasty & well prepared.

I've been here before and never disappointed. Service is always very good and attentive. Food is very good, served quickly. We had a very nice lunch and enjoyed sitting outside on a nice day. Located in a nice area and near sites. Worth the stop

Had a nice lunch here whilst waiting for our time slot at Anne Frank's house. The traditional Dutch stew with potatoes and gravy was nice and so were the pancakes. It seems to be the best eaterie in the area near the Anne Frank house

Yet another nice coffee place which was rather funky. This place serves muscles but I never had the chance to eat here, maybe next time.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
