Café de Reiger Review

This excellent neighborhood brown café ("brown" because of its nicotine-stained nature) has a long history of being packed with boisterous drinkers and diners. Its past is reflected in its tile tableaux and century-old fittings. The Dutch fare is of the bold meat-potato-vegetable variety, always wonderfully prepared and sometimes even with an occasional adventurous diversion, such as the sea bass tastily swimming in a sauce of fennel and spinach (but regulars usually just opt for the spare ribs). At lunchtime on Saturdays there is a menu of sandwiches and warm snacks.

    creative & delicious

    From the friendly & helpful staff when you enter to the thoughtfully prepared dishes, my husband & I loved this delightful cafe. We ate there twice on our recent trip to Amsterdam. I had veggie meals both times, while my husband had meat dishes. The veggie meals were obviously prepared with fresh available ingredients, since I had similar items in both meals, but prepared entirely different. One was a (excellent) mushroom sauce topped pastry shell with assorted grilled vegetables and the other, veggie 'wraps' (in a league of their own, rather than the fastfood variety that word evokes). I honestly don't remember my husband's meat choices, but do remember he thoroughly enjoyed them,
