Restaurant located in the nice historical building on Nieuwmarkt. I like this place because they have Jopen Bokbier and bitterballen. So, overall it is just another place to drink a glass of beer, but it is ok.

view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples

Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
