    A great cafe, amazing interior and great views! The menu is great and the bonus is that this is the perfect place to get your laptop out and do some work.

    This grand Cafe is the real deal if you are looking for a fancy place to grab a bite or have a decent drink. Nice and openly furnished! The French fries are absolutely enlightening!

    The cod with quinoa and pomegranate sauce was SO good. The outdoor area was completely crowded on a nice night, but grab a seat here if you can!

    Even when it is not sunny, get the outside table (which is heated) and enjoy the lovely view of Amstel. Coffee is great, they have nice magazines and very nice staff. Can be my fav place in A'dam.

    Great spot near canals to just enjoy drink on sunny day or delicious dinner in the evening. Fish was delicious with nice freshly made chips.

    To start, get the Caesar salad. It comes with a poached egg and actual anchovies. We sat by the canal and ordered the tuna and lamb shank. Both perfectly cooked. You can sit anywhere upon arrival.

    Get poached egg with salmon when you have a kick-ass hangover. It will kill it, the smooth way.

    Firstly, get the Croque Monsieur, that greasy shit is the tits. Nice setting if you can stomach the staff's mind games. Overall an OK breakfast, but where else are you gonna go? Drovers Dog? Please.

    Go here for breakfast or lunch. With nice weather make sure to sit on the terrace and order a 'wit biertje'. Also a great spot for business meetings

    Great location next to the river with trendy decor. Came late night for drinks with friends and it was quite enjoyable. One afternoon though I was ignored by staff for more than an hour and just left.

    Great food, but mostly lunch-like dishes. We visited at Queen's Day, so it was very busy and the waiters had little to no time to communicate with guests. It's a stylish with a primarily young crowd.

    It's a eetcafe & that's the food you'll get. If u want haute cuisine, this is not the place. But if u want some good quick and decent food this is the right place. Love the pâté and the smoked salmon.

    They have great gluten free bread here. Avoid the grilled sandwiches since everything goes on the same press.

    Great restaurant and awesome service. I'd recommend either the lamb, lobster or the ribeye and wash it down with a few Gulpener

    Really nice creamy mussels soup, but the chairs outside are made of iron thus cold autumn/winter and prices are a bit above average.

    Despite its size De Ysbreeker has an intimate atmosphere. It's quite noisy but if you like some background noise it's perfect for working/studying. Some tabels offer reading light and power plugs!
