We dropped by here for dinner and were lucky enough to sit outside on King's Day as the weather was great. It's located a little far from the city centre which in our case was good because it was outside of the madness.

We got a chicken per couple to share, along with sides. When they brought out the food I was sure I wasn't going to be able to finish my portion as it seemed huge but we manage to eat everything. As a good rule of thumb, half a chicken per person is enough to get you full so don't be overzealous and get a full chicken as you probably won't be able to finish it. The chicken is really tasty and so are the sides.

The service was good. The one thing that is pretty annoying is that the beers are really small (either 0.25cl or 0.33cl, not sure) and quite expensive for the size.

Overall a good experience and might drop by again the next time we're in Amsterdam.

We had a very nice dinner in ‘Van’t Spit’. There was a very nice atmosphere and the people were friendly. The chicken nugget starters were to die for and the chicken dinner afterwards was delicious. When we go back to Amsterdam we will definitely come back!

I had dinner in this place and my experience was really great. Not too much expensive if you consider you're in a touristic neighborhood (about 20 euro for a half chicken with fries, bier, bread with herb-butter). Greatly advisable!

Went there with som friends. We all had half a chicken, fries and coleslaw. The food and sauces are always excellent here. The vibe is great. It is usually quite full and you may need to wait for a table. It is absolutely worth it though.
