Amsterdam's Best Eetcafés

small bistro's where you can have a good dinner for a rather small price

An eetcafé ('eating café') in Amsterdam offers bistro-like food and has mostly simple menus. An eetcafé can be compared to a small neighborhood restaurant. They feature a casual and friendly atmosphere. Eetcafés have often local beers on tap and offer usually a larger wine list than that of a brown café.
