Dropped in for an after dinner beer. Classic decor, and friendly service. The place has a nice outdoor area to enjoy your drinks on a summery evening.

Slightly more pricey place but the bar is an experience. With traditional barrels, sand on the floor and classical dressed staff it is well worth a visit. Delicious locally brewed beers. Gin was pricey but that's a standard for Amsterdam it seems.

Double establishment - very old part (bar) with sawdust on floor reproducing its 17th century feel, and more modern part adjacent which serves light meals. Both have pavement tables which catch the afternoon sun, though on a rather busy street.

Mythical place in Amsterdam, apparently one of the oldest bars in the city (1670). Which could explain the crowd, as its location in the center. The draft beer was very good, service efficient.

My dad and I stopped here for drinks and appetizers one evening. Great food - the meatballs and fried shrimp were excellent. Friendly staff and good service.

Had breakfast here - not much variety. French breakfast included toast and orange juice but was pretty standard and boring and not super tasty. Did not get to try the lunch or dinner menu so might come by again next time.

A lovely cafe and fabulous hot chocolate (with loads of cream of course). Great atmosphere and character.

Visited many times. Always friendly and a great atmosphere. Drinks aren't expensive and neither is the food. Lovely to sit out on a hot day or hide inside on a cold one.
