    Could be we were just stupid Americans, but we could not for the life of us find this place using google maps. Wound up giving up after an extra 15 minutes of walking and got pizza nearby. Some signage would have helped.

    Some of the most delicious food I've had here, cooked by lovely people all with a refugee background. Delicate and flavoursome food, generous servings and interesting dishes - some creative and some classic. Lovely staff. It's a real adventure to find this place but it was only a 20 min bike ride from Amsterdam Oost so get out there! Super cheap (40euros for tonnes of food and drinks) in a really cool space. You're supporting a really important program when you go here...so go! Book in! They can take large bookings too. You won't regret it.

    A fromer prison converted into a very interesting place with a relaxed atmosphere. The food is delicious and the people are very nice. Highly recommended!

    Great place for lunch, for who wants to invite his/her (business) relations in a 180% different environment.
