Went in for a drink after a great Indonesian meal. Place is full of large wooden tables and we were lucky to get our own. Good beer and wine pretty acceptable. We were the only foreigners there which is heartening!

Good selection of beers. Didn't eat there (as we had already eaten) but kitchen was busy and food looked good. Nice outdoor patio with heaters in the evening

I came back after a walk at the Vondelpark. As it was quite cold, I decided to have a short hot drink and to eat something.

It has a good location, but sadly its understaffed, which leads to poor customer service and food. I have eaten there few times due to the location and convenience, but each time has been poor. Unless more attention will be given to running this properly and have a consistent chef, then it could be something quite nice.

We had dinner here Tuesday night for the special burger night and the food was good but the service very slow... We had to wait almost an hour to get 2 burgers which is unfortunate.

We live very close to this café and had never been here for food before, only for drinks (they have a really nice variety of beers). Unfortunately it was a terrible experience and we probably won't be returning considering the other options in the area. It was a Friday night and admittedly quite busy, however the fries were obviously re-heated,... More

I love very close to this pub and go often here. It's not very crowded, the terrace is big and you'll find good food and drinks.
