This bar, situated in an old bank building, is still slightly off the beaten track. But it is quite trendy and offers a different sort of experience from the average bar. The interior is furnished using a variety of homey accessories: a reading table, a small inner garden, loads of different places to sit and varied styles of chairs and tables, all done up in a very Mediterranean style. There's wi-fi internet available. Lots of color creates a warm atmosphere. Live music on Sunday afternoons makes this an even more tempting place to while the day away. The delicious tapas are richly featured on the menu. There are some excellent beers on tap, as well as a nice collection of bottled beers.
This is a lovely place to meet some friends and have some drinks. It is very spacious with lots of room. It was busy, but not so busy to be uncomfortable. I had a nice time here.... for the most part.
At first, my friend and I were sitting at a table, and we were able to see into the kitchen. This was a friday evening and by this time I am assuming (hoping!) no one was ordering food. As I looked in the direction of the kitchen, I saw at first one mouse. Then... multiple mice. 3, 4, 5, 6 mice. Not only on the floor, but up on the counters and prep area. My thought was if they knew they had a mouse problem, they should have a door on the kitchen.
The glasses are washed by hand at the bar, so I wasn't worried about our cups, but I would not eat there and I suggest any other number of places other than this for eating.
avoid this place if you're looking for friendly Amsterdam

Although the food is alright and the place is nice and trendy, the personel has more than the ability to compensate all this.
Right from the start they gave us the impression they had much more important things on their mind than helping us order our coffee and lunch; all their friendliness was saved for presenting the the bill.
