Service is potentially the worst I ever experienced. Drinks did not turn up. Waited what feels like several days for a couple of sandwiches. Bit of a joke

Stopped here when passing on a walk around the city, is a buzzing little spot near the canal and market. Good place to stop and have a drink and watch the world go by.

Street corner cafe/pub with outside tables and a lively atmosphere. Good selection of local foods and beers. Good service. Worth a visit or two.

The service was good and the food also. The place was a bit crowded but we managed to find a table. The soups were delicious and the club sandwich I've had was good. The portions are quite big.

Great food and prices in a beautiful area of the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. Lots of lovely veggie options, and the service is excellent too. Really nice place to stop.

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.
