Description: The characteristic building at number 21 in the famous Reguliersdwarsstraat in the city centre of Amsterdam has a warm and relaxed ambiance. The interior has a retro look with a cheerful Mediterranean-Caribbean twist. The large bar with an extensive collection of spirits jumps right in the eye and invites you to drink one of our cocktails or just an ice cold beer. The menu consists of classic dishes, with an emphasis on comfort food. As a starter we serve for example a crispy Soft Shell Crab in tempura or Quinoa salad with figs, blue cheese and bacon.For the main dish we can not miss the Red Snapper: the fillet grilled with a Caribbean salsa and served with a cous cous salad. Or do you prefer a Surf 'n Turf with Diamond Fillet and Black Tiger Prawns? We serve also all time favorites with a "Snappers twist" as Fish & Chips and juicy BBQ Ribs. The prices of the entrees remain all under 10 euros, the prices of the main courses range from 12 to 18 euros. Oscar Steginga responsible for the cocktails, has made a beautiful cocktail menu including classic tiki and tropical cocktails. He works with lots of fresh fruit and homemade juices. And you can taste it! Take for example the Big Bamboo, including a mix of pineapple, overproof rum and Havana 3y. He uses homemade syrups such as rice syrup in the Healthy Pluym (Ketel One Vodka, green tea, prosecco and lemon in it). Furthermore, there are all sorts of Gin & Tonic combination served in perfect harmony.

Amazing cocktails and good burritos!

The service was quite attentive, however, I personally think it lacked of Mexican "soul"... They should get at least one Mexican person or someone who fully understands this special and huge culture to get to the next level(maybe the top?)

Really good prices for Amsterdam!

In the last 2 months I've been here several times for a reason: the cocktails are really good! The cocktail menu is full of unconventional drinks with funny names, as Kim's cum (when asked about it the waiter answered that this cocktail was named after a girl working here a long time ago ). I literally loved that they serve Negroni, typical Italian drink not easy to find abrod. Food wise I only tried nachos with chicken, they were quite tasty. Thumbs up for Snappers!

Very small tex-mex/burger place that has a great bar and cocktails. Staff lovely, atmosphere warm and friendly, and a good music background. Seems very popular so booking advised which is easy via their website. Great burgers.

We were recommended Snappers by Door74 and made the short walk up the road.

We entered and it was really busy, we stood at the bar for a while before I asked if there was any seats, we then waited 10 minutes before a couple left the bar seats so we sat down.

Fast forward 45 minutes and we hadn’t even had our order taken. Their was plenty of staff doing not a lot and the arrogant bar tender was too busy flirting and loving himself that he didn’t even make eye contact with us even though we were sat a mere meter from him.

We then stopped a waitress who took our order but after another 25 minutes we still had nothing. I asked to cancel our order and left, with no apology or reasoning.

I don’t mind waiting for good cocktails, but when the bartender was not in a rush at all, it’s insulting.

We found another bar up the road (cannot remember the name) and our night was saved.

We visited Snappers on a Monday night for dinner and despite being quiet at first it soon got busier with most tables drinking. We ordered the small chicken nachos to start between two of us and what arrived was huge (the waiter said the chef had been generous)! They were really delicious and so reasonably priced for what we got! I had a salmon burger, my boyfriend had the OG burger and we shared fries and all were really good! I would say the salmon burger needed to be a little bigger as I had a bit more bun than needed but netherless it was all delicious.
we were sad not to try the cocktails as they sounded and looked great but after all the food we didnt have room!
