Description: The characteristic building at number 21 in the famous Reguliersdwarsstraat in the city centre of Amsterdam has a warm and relaxed ambiance. The interior has a retro look with a cheerful Mediterranean-Caribbean twist. The large bar with an extensive collection of spirits jumps right in the eye and invites you to drink one of our cocktails or just an ice cold beer. The menu consists of classic dishes, with an emphasis on comfort food. As a starter we serve for example a crispy Soft Shell Crab in tempura or Quinoa salad with figs, blue cheese and bacon.For the main dish we can not miss the Red Snapper: the fillet grilled with a Caribbean salsa and served with a cous cous salad. Or do you prefer a Surf 'n Turf with Diamond Fillet and Black Tiger Prawns? We serve also all time favorites with a "Snappers twist" as Fish & Chips and juicy BBQ Ribs. The prices of the entrees remain all under 10 euros, the prices of the main courses range from 12 to 18 euros. Oscar Steginga responsible for the cocktails, has made a beautiful cocktail menu including classic tiki and tropical cocktails. He works with lots of fresh fruit and homemade juices. And you can taste it! Take for example the Big Bamboo, including a mix of pineapple, overproof rum and Havana 3y. He uses homemade syrups such as rice syrup in the Healthy Pluym (Ketel One Vodka, green tea, prosecco and lemon in it). Furthermore, there are all sorts of Gin & Tonic combination served in perfect harmony.

As Amsterdam locals we have obviously tried a lot of restaurants in our city. However, our recent find Snappers has quickly become one of our favourites due to its wonderful starter dishes and consistently friendly service by staff always willing to advise with a smile.

Their claim to fame regarding their spare ribs is fully justified, but why take our word for it? Order a one person starter version of the ribs and be amazed first hand. Located centrally in the city it's a perfect place to stop by for an early dinner and plan the rest of your evening from there. The cocktail menu is something we will start to discover over the coming weeks as we intend to come back regularly. Definitely recommended as a place to go in Amsterdam!

The service was friendly and warm. Some changes were made to dishes for vegetarians. Every effort was made to make us and all other diners feel welcome..........and this was obvious in the atmosphere .
The food was simple and excellent. I'd definitely recommend Snappers for a small or large group of friends, also for couples though not a quiet and romantic vibe.......more for lots of laughing.

Was looking for a place to eat and saw this on TripAdvisor. Ordered the ribs, quesadillas (chicken) and the fried chicken! Amazing food and the waiter manning the bar was great too :)

To quote my husband... "Best ribs I've ever tasted" and the steak was just as good. Would highly recommend Snappers for food or for their cocktails!

This was by far our favourite restaurant we ate at during our time in Amsterdam. Friendly service, open kitchen, all made for a great atmosphere. Be prepared to get sticky, the ribs are to die for!!
