Bars & Restaurants  in Amsterdam

There are plenty places to get beverage in Amsterdam.

But: what is the nicest, coziest or best valued place to be or to experience? I mean, no tourist-food, no exceptional high prices because you are a tourist, and so on, just friendly waiters and bar staff and good and well-priced.

And, of course, where are the typical 'Brown-Amsterdam-Bars' and how do you participate in the real Amsterdam-feeling? This is something you have to experience if you visit Amsterdam!

I've made a selection of nice and good places in Amsterdam. Enjoy your stay at one of these places!
Don't forget to mention my website!

A typical Amsterdam bar. 'Bolle Jan' his son is the famous René Froger. Nice barwomen, good-valued beer prices. Dutch live-music.

Cafe 'De Blaffende Vis'
Westerstraat 118
Area: Jordaan-Centre
Entrance: free

A typical Brown bar at the 'Jordaan', one of the parts you have to visit in Amsterdam. It's only a fifteen-minute-walk from Dam square to here, so nice to do!
Good staff and the local people and students can be found here. Good food and drinks, nice prices too.

Bar 'Anno 1890' Café
Amstelveenseweg 1124
Area: Border Amstelveen-(South)

A typical Dutch cafe at 'the end of Amsterdam'. It's at the border with Amstelveen. The 'Saté' is the best of Amsterdam but there is more at the good menucard.
Every thursday-, friday- & saturdaynight "Club 1890".
Good music, nice people and several times parties with live artists. You need a cab to get there.

Bar 'In de Wildeman'
Kolksteeg 5

The biggest beer collection! 18 beers on draught and around 200 different brands on bottle. Monthly changing brands on draught. Sorry, no Heineken!

Café 'De twee Zwaantjes'
Prinsengracht 114
Area: Jordaan-Centre
Entrance: free
De Twee Zwaantjes (The Two Swans) is one of the better known Jordaan bars. Every sunday sing along with a live band! Caters mainly to a local public on weekdays, but during the weekend an enthusiastic crowd sings along to old songs from the Jordaan and an occasional opera piece. The bar has a canalside terrace. Say hello from me to 'Trees' plz!

A lot of students do eat here daily!

It's an old warehouse in the middle of the 'Jordaan' with a intriguing walldrawing. Nice and friendly staff.

Snack time! What to get?
Eetsalon Van Dobben
Korte Reguliersdwarsstraat 5-9
Area: Rembrandtsquare-Centre
Open: all week; morning till late

A real Dutch 'Eetsalon' (sandwich-restaurant). Established in 1945 and it's still the same: the food is still fresh, the staff is still friendly and the audience...! Take away the famous "Van Dobben Croquet" or eat it in with a glass of milk at one of the few tables in the restaurant.
Good food, nice prices, friendly people.
Manneken Pis, Vlaamse Frieten
Area: Central Station-Centre
Open: all week; morning till late

Real Vlamish Chips!
Manneken Pis is the best Vlamisch chips-bakkery, choosen by a jury from 'Het Parool', the daily local newspaper, in 2005, 2007 & 2008.
Over 20 sorts of sauces. Drinks to take away too.
