Nice place with good service, fair prices for coffee and tea. No idea about the food quality. Good location at the Leidseplein.
A realily nice building in a central location away from the tourist crowd this cafe/resturant was buzzing with local knowledge on whats was really happening in Amsterdam, and great coffee and tart
We have just arrived to Amsterdam and needed coffee asap. We glimpsed at this place and got into it. Ordered a fantastic breakfast (scrambled eggs, croissant, marmelade, muesli, joghurt). The ingredients were really good quality. Coffee was around 6-7 on a scale of 10. The service was a bit slow, we had to wait quite long to order.
We go here often to have drinks before or after going out. They have a 'special' that is reasonably priced and often it's a gin and tonic. We only ate once here and that is because the food is quite average and there is a limited choice for vegetarians. On weekends, there is often a DJ so you can shake... 更多
We had the fish of the day (Vis in Dutch) The Skreifilet was perfectly cooked but presented on a mix of rice, spinach and squid and.. But location is superb, an the environment fantastic. Cafe, restaurant, cinema, bar, you name it it is here.
De Balie is a cultural centre in the middle of Amsterdam for movies, debates and expositions of art. In daytime you can enjoy a coffee or lunch. And in the evening dinner. The menu is simple and nice, the staff friendly. Sometimes it's really busy because it's also a cafe.
Very nice place to meet the Dutch intellectual scene. There are many meetings, discussions, films and you will meet htese people at the abr as well. We had dinner as well but that's no succes. We had the burger with dry (old) bread, dry frites, too much unions. So bettrer keep it by drinks and talks.
The Balie, a former courthouse and prison has been turned into a theatre and restaurant several years ago and offers a good combination of culture and food. Lots of creative patrons (often engrossed in their tablets), but very nice drinks both soft and alcoholic (try the Texel beer) and a modest menu for food which is however of good quality... 更多
Went here with some colleagues for a late dinner. We were served by the most charming waitress, who made a nice break after a hectic day - thanks ! I had a very tasty lamb casserole and a good local beer. The atmosphere was quite relaxed and laid back.
