    This bistro type restaurant is conveniently located on the Amstel near the Rembrandt House and the Jewish Museum and represents a good choice for lunch ( dinner also served ). The crowded room drew us in - must be doing something right. The few available internet reviews are quite variable, and service is not well regarded - the servers were harried and hurried but on asking for more time to review the menu encountered no difficulty at all. Tables are crowded together, noise level is high.

    Sandwiches seemed a good choice and were quite acceptable, although the menu offers more sophisticated entrees and appetizers. Prices were uniformly less than 10 Eu for the sandwiches and not that much more for the mains. Each was actually presented artistically, with one half cantilevered on the other and surrounded by veggies and good fries. The breads were whole grain type, nice. A highlight was the apple cake - not a crumb was left over - and the coffee was excellent. Recommended.

    Eetcafe Blauwbrug: Tasty brown cafe near the Rembrandthuis

    Not surprisingly, this nice small cafe/bar is just a few yards away from the Blauwbrug, and not far from the Rembrandthuis and other attractions of the old Jewish quarter. Pleasant old decor and a local charm - nice sandwiches for the middle of the day.
