Denied tap water, tried to sell us a bottle instead. Ordered a fizzy drink which you get a large at €4 unless you specify a regular. Food arrived quick as the restaurant was empty, food was below average with a high price tag.More

Loved finding this cosy hideaway on a side street. We shared a pizza and pasta between us with garlic bread. Really fresh and tasty food. Would recommend.

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
