  • Nice atmosphere, you can have some shopping and walking in nearby streets. Amsterdam lovely Apple store is there also!  more »
  • Beautiful setting. It was winter, so my advice is to go midday to get the benefit of the sun and the beautiful setting. Great restaurants off the Square.  more »
  • Several options of restaurants and pubs. It is evident how hectic it is Amsterdam at this location and for attracting large numbers of young people.

  • The service and the food were horrible. It took forever for someone to take our order, I actually had to call a waitress over after we were sitting there for about 30 minutes. Then I ordered the calamari and spring rolls and they were absolutely disgusting. The calamari was deep fried and came out looking like funnel cake. You couldn't even taste the squid. The spring rolls tasted processed. I returned my food having barely touched it and the woman refused to comp it from my bill. This was my first meal in amsterdam and it was a horrible experience. DONT EAT HERE.
  • Nice place for dinner or drinks. If you are seated near the windows the view to Leidseplein is very nice
  • A great pub. Although located on a very touristic square it has the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of a neighbourhood pub. Service was friendly and brisk. Coffee, Bokbier and Bitterballen were all fine.
  • Went there twice, both times staff was more interested in talking amongst themselves than servicing customers. I was by myself too, my order would've taken them very little time and effort. But if nobody comes after 10 minutes, I leave.
  • Nice atmosphere. Good service on top floor. Tasty steak.
