Bar staff were fantastic and the bar had a great atmosphere. Easy accessible, it's a little bit out of the Centre but it's a nice break.

A very cosy and welcoming place with friendly English-speaking staff. We didn't try the food but the lasagne looked nice and the coffee and selection of beers was good.

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

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.
