TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE I should have paid attention to the other horrible reviews! I asked for a glass of tap water -- waiter said we do not provide it. Well for almost 3 euros, I could have bought a bottle. Ordered the 3 plate sampler which arrived much later than a table of 4 who ordered the same dish after I placed my order. What was served was not worth the 18 euros -- 3 very small frying pans no wider than a small palm width, one with a piece of beef smaller than my thumb, another with 3 small slices of sausage and the third of overcooked small pieces of bacon. Beneath the pitifully small amount of meat were mashed potatoes mixed with saurkraut and the third had chopped up kale. And to add a bigger insult to injury, this sham of a restaurant DID NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS!!! I travel to Europe every fall for 3 months and this is the worst meal I have had in Europe in 9 years. Run, do not walk past this restaurant.

Might have been the party weekend, but the staff was quite inattentive, though quite pleasant when they do come around. 15 minutes waiting for a drink and another 40 minutes for the food is inexcusable. Food was ok (I guess medium rare means raw for steak).

Service was chirpy but the food was like 'The Stockpot' circa 1990 - filling but neither exciting nor interesting. However the signature dish when the meatball was replaced with the sausage caused a wry smile from the grandmere on the neighbouring table. Alas, it was only after the other three in my group were served that I was alerted to the missing meatball. After we arrived many other Lonely Planet readers joined us. I hope they were happier.

We had a great time! Very much a 'local' spot with so much character. The Stampott was really good as was the beef stew. A really lovely end to a very long day in wonderful Amsterdam.
