I arrived early afternoon, the restaurant was fairly busy, with no free tables on the pavement, and only a few inside. The menu was good, they offered full English breakfast all day. I felt soft drinks were over-priced. Service was friendly, and the food tasted...More

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

Hi guys, I ate here with friends on Friday lunchtime, great food and great price, but I need to know who the waitress was who served us on the top floor? She was the most beautiful creature I have ever laid eyes on. :)
