We had read about Labyrinth and it sounded like a fun off the beaten place kind of place. The food was delicious soul food that truly soothed my soul - made with care and great flavors. Now, the cocktails were some of the best I have ever had. Watching Sam make our drinks was like watching an artist create a masterpiece. And the flavors - off the chart experience for my taste buds. Excellent combination of ingredients with attention to every detail. Service was great. All around great experience and can't wait to to return.

I have been to this restaurant three times, once with my mom, the second time with my mom and my boyfriend and the last time (last night) with my boyfriend and his parents. All three times I have left the restaurant completely satisfied. The drinks are simply amazing - I definitely suggest Wild Nights, in the pictures - and the food is truly “soul food” - plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, I particularly loved the steamed okra, the jacked sweet potato and the gyoza dumplings, and from what I heard from the other non-vegetarians the chicken wings and the prawns were delicious too. Besides food and drinks, the atmosphere is warm and cozy, I loved the poems from MeP (an initiative founded in Italy called “movement for the emancipation of poetry”) all over the place and I also enjoyed the music on a Saturday during Blues night. This place is truly a rare pearl and I am not exaggerating when I say that it is probably my favorite place in Amsterdam. Thank you for creating something so amazing!

If you want the best cocktail in Amsterdam, Sam is your man. Not only are they crafted with care, the ingredients blend together so perfectly and still preserve that flavor you are searching for. Sam will check in on you to make sure he’s making the drinks to your liking which I always appreciate in a good bartender. Our waitress neither neglected nor hovered over us while we ate. She was wonderful. Gave us great food recommendations and was very professional.
The menu has great variety among small plates and the flavors were delicious.
The ambiance is a little dark, more lighting may make it a more inviting place.
Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam in search of good cocktails and tapas.

This was my first visit to Labyrinth and fell in love with this establishment. It far exceeded the recommendations from others. It reminds me of the 50's hangouts in San Francisco and City Lights and those great bars and hangouts. The atmosphere hits as soon as you step through the door. This night there was a great little jazz group playing. Then the STAR of the night Miss McNaughty appeared on stage. She holds the audience in the palm of her hand. Her poetry covers a wide range of subjects, and they are thought provocating. A perfect evening.
