The pub itself is so utterly Dutch. It's dark, lots of deep colored woods, basic wooden tables and chairs and almost too cozy. Counter that the menu is interesting it's elaborate it caters for all (although heavy on the meat - no complaints here!!). The staff are friendly and service is good. One tip: wear layers as it gets very... More

Really welcoming small 'brown cafe' style restaurant, close to the Mercure hotel. Great atmosphere, obviously really popular with locals as it was always packed, unlike the restaurant almost next door. We ate here twice in our four-night stay - much better value than the two other places we visited. Piet and his staff were so friendly. Tenderloin beef was amazing,... More

Accidentally booked this place thinking it was somewhere else I'd been before. Decided to stay in any case. Menu was fairly limited if you don't like beef or horse. Yes, horse. Had beef tenderloin, which was nicely done with a stroganoff sauce on the side and some chips. Enjoyed the meal but have had better.

Yes a great little find "off the beaten track" - but less than 50 meters from Mecure Canal District hotel. Group of four had pleasant meal including beef in red wine sauce and another had beef & horse steaks. Served with chips and great salad. All very tender meat, but my only grumble would be a slightly bigger portion of... More

Have you booked? No? Then onto the big tables as all small ones reserved- and they were! Not to worry (as long as you don't mind other people - we don't. Excellent steak with salad, cooked just right, Mrs W's dorade perhaps a little on the dry side - I think it is best cooked a la meuniere to try... More

Het is ons adresje in Amsterdam, we komen hier dan ook met enige regelmaat even lekker happen! De biefstukken zijn verrukkelijk (en absoluut aan te raden is de paardenbiefstuk) ook de kalfslever en de zeetong zijn hier heerlijk! Heerlijk gewoon en goed eten met zeer vriendelijke bediening in een bijzonder pandje! This is our regular "do" in Amsterdam, and we... More

It's not a fancy place, simply casual but the food was good. I got to enjoy a nice horse tenderloin, well cooked. The meat came with fries and salad, which was simply okay.

A business colleague invited us to his favourite restaurant. It is a quaint restaurant in a side street in Amsterdam. Food choices were good with a good mix local dishes. Service was good and food was good Lovely evening

Looking for a nice quiet café, near our hotel, we found Piet de Leeuw on a little sidestreet in Amsterdam. Some of us were turned off by the menu posted outside of the café, in which they had horsemeat on the menu. Looking further, they had all types of steaks and other entrees. So, we decided to try it. All... More

We would never have found this place without a decent guidebook. What a gem! Not a huge menu but what they do is great. Price-fix menu also available. Staff were great and added to the evening for us. Try the horse!
