The restaurant itself is nothing to look at, but it has tables on a bridge overlooking the canal, and it's a great place to hang out, have a beer and food. We were there at lunchtime, had nice sandwiches and very tasty fries.

I would have given Cafe van Zuylen five but there was a mess up in the kitchen and my Black Angus steak which was supposed to be " Van Zuylen " style arrived with pepper sauce instead of the mushrooms, onions and pancetta. This meant...More

A thoroughly enjoyable place to hang on a Sunday afternoon with a beer, enjoying the scenery. Food is pretty simple sandwiches and limited pub fare (we did a caprese sandwich and tuna melt), but enough to recharge the batteries. Service was efficient and quick. Waitress...More

Atmosphere lovely, attentive and smiley staff, outside seating in sunny weather is awesome and inside there is a nice buzz, but not too loud. Good place to go with a few friends. Recommended.

We loved this special snacky place on a bridge overlooking all the boats and cycles foing along the canal. It was always very busy mostly with residents and a few tourists with a great atmosphere. We had wine and snacks here which were very good....More

Nice food, but a limited range on offer. The beef stew I had was amazing. Located not far from Dam Square thus cafe is fairly central.

Go with the majority view on this; very pleasant location on a sunny evening for people watching. Menu not exciting, but seems fairly typical in the area; Classic burger is a good meal, all the ingredients are right. Staff friendly and efficient

This place is not one that will stand out in your memory, at least that was the way with me. Burgers, beef stew shrimp all good.

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
