First night in Amsterdam and I had made a reservation before we arrived. Our plane was a little late so I called and they were very accommodating. The staff was amazing, food very delicious (wanted to make sure to try local fare!), and the space quaint and cute. We loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

We are used to having great fries in Belgium and The Netherlands. But here they were likely from frozen fries, not crispy, even soggy. When mentioned to the waiter, he was insulted and said that "our fries are not crap" which unfortunately they were.

Service was fast and food was delicious. Especially recommend the beef stew and the cinnamon ice cream that accompanied the apple pie. Great place for a traditional Dutch dinner.

This restaurant is one of those gems that are hard to find these days. Cooking is flavorful with a varied menu with many excellent choices. Service is superb with friendly, knowledgeable, laid back and accommodating folks. The atmosphere is equally warm and inviting. We went 2 nights in a row. Did I mention that 2 persons can eat with wine for under 100euros?

This restaurant was a special find. We enjoyed dinner our last night in Amsterdam. My wife enjoyed the stamp pot and I enjoyed the pork loins with salad and fries.

I chose this restaurant after I learned that my original choice was closed on Monday. It did not disappoint. It was Dutch cooking at its best. Comfort food. I had Oma’s Beef stew. Delicious . The service was first rate and the decor was wonderful, down to the oriental carpet table cloths.

Based upon previous reviews my husband and I were looking forward to our dinner at Zwaantje. Unfortunately, our experience was extremely disappointing. We enjoyed our appetizer which was excellent, but then waited 45 minutes for our main dishes to be served. We were told our waiter forgot to notify the kitchen when we had finished our appetizer. My husband ordered the beef stew which was very good. I had ordered the Chef’s special, duck in a mushroom cream sauce. When served the sauce was cold, so the waiter took it back to the kitchen. When it was returned to me the sauce was hot, unfortunately the duck was overdone and tough. Besides apologizing and stating that he would advise the chef, the waiter did nothing to remedy the immediate issue. This was our last evening in Amsterdam and we left as unhappy customers.

Lovely traditional place in Amsterdam. Great atmosphere, delicious food, really friendly and attentive staff. For all these reasons it was busy so probably wise to book.

We ordered the Grandma's beef stew, stammpot and grilled trout. The beef stew and stammpot were so good! Nothing to shout about with the grilled trout. Great service as well, lovely local spot. Reservation's important as it gets full and we saw them turning people away.

Gezellige sfeer, echt amsterdams. Heel druk in de negen straatjes. Dus soms lang wachten. ook geen grote porties, wel extra na te vragen maar duurt lang.

Go to a real Dutch restaurant in the heart of Amsterdam. Find an authentic interior of an Amsterdam pub with the facility to eat simple but good. Try the classic dishes that fit this original place. The atmosphere and decor of an ancient café make everyone feel right at home here. Informal, warm and plain. A fine place to rest for a while and enjoy the genuine, Amsterdam coziness.
