Singel, Amsterdam
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Until the Middle Ages, Singel--a picturesque canal--surrounded the Dutch capital. After the city expanded, the canal continued to act as a moat around the city center, and today it is the innermost canal of Amsterdam's ring of famous canals. Running from the IJ lake near the city's central train station to Muntplein Square, where the water joins the Amstel River, the canal cuts through the city center, passing many significant tourist attractions. You'll see part of the infamous Red Light District along its banks, as well as a house that claims to be the narrowest in the world at only 1 m (3.3 ft) wide. Amsterdam's popular flower market, Bloemenmarkt, includes market stalls aboard boats in the canal.

  • Tasty sandwiches, relaxed service and comfortable atmosphere. Great for a quick, tasty, filling lunch.
  • Brie, smoked chicken, quacamole, sun-dried tomato panini is a show-stopper. Large portions and great prices.
  • Surprisingly good food. Cosy place, pleasant laid back atmosphere. Perfect for Sunday lunch.
  • 1 star because it smelled really bad inside. They need to do something about that. It is unhygienic. Sandwiches are great but not if you smell sewage while having lunch.
  • Excellent food for lunch. Had mamazing tuna pannini and club sandwiche they both were excellent quality and tasted amazing!!!
