The service was perfect as was the food. Highly recommend the sticky chicken wings (my partner said they were the best he’d had EVER). Waiters were super friendly and made the meal comfortable from start to finish with just nice little touches such as wiping the table down between courses, keeping the table clear, checking in regularly. I’ve found Amsterdam quite hard to find nice places to eat in as most locations are just tourist traps but this place is certainly the exception. Will definitely be back!

I felt the steak wasn’t as special as it’s made out to be even though it looked pleasing the taste was disappointing.

The steak was one of the best I've ever had. Service was efficient, if not a bit fast. Menu was in both Dutch and English which helps. If I'm ever back in Amsterdam, I certainly would return.

And they always have good availability at short notice. Definitely a diamond in the rough given its location in a typically tourist trap area. Food is fantastic, and the service is second-to-none. The staff are always chatty and friendly, and provide a very personal service.
