De Reiger is mentioned in the Yellow Pages as a restaurant only, but to many, it is just a regular pub before six o'clock. This certainly holds true for the long small bar in the front, where dining is hardly possible anyway. During the day the clients are mainly the younger import-Jordanese from the neighbourhood. The kitchen is good and offers, in addition to the soup and the dish-of-the-day, a tasty three-course dinner: Meat, fish or vegetarian. Amstel is offered on draught; various bottled beers are also served.
We read about De Reiger in Rick Steves' book, and found it without any problem in the cozy Jordaan district (which it also immensely enjoyable to stroll through before and after dinner). The restaurant is relatively small, @ 20 tables, so you should definitely make a reservation. Everything we orderd was simply sensational. The owner and waiters/waitresses were full of life and enhanced the whole evening. Even though we like to experience as wide a variety of foods and restaurants wherever we go, we had to go back our second night, and it was very difficult not to go back a third night in a row. You will not be disappointed.
We loved the coziness of the place which has been under the same ownership for 25 years.The waiter was friendly and the food just terrific. Not cheap but certainly worth what we paid. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
As I was wandering the streets of Amsterdam looking for a good local place to eat I happened upon Reiger on a side street. It was nice and quiet. Like a neighborhood pub. The atmosphere was homey and comfortable. I had the soup of the day which came with cold cuts and dutch bread. I had a nice cup of coffee that came with a very nice piece of chocolate, which was perfect desert. The server was very friendly and helpful. He even gave me directions back to the central station. I recommend this friendly place to anyone interested.
