user reviews of Café 'T Papeneiland, Amsterdam

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Traditional Dutch brown cafe on two floors. As you enter, you are greeted by a warmly lit bar partially contained beneath the staircase to the upper floor. The spacious upper floor helps create a snug beneath it with a horseshoe of continuous benchs seating around a single large table. Wood panelling throghout; walls filled with drawings of Amsterdam Old Town and old photographs. Pleasant, subdued lighting afforded by tungsten rose-tinted candle-bulbs.

Outside seating provided.

No music or fruit machines to intrude; solid conversation buzzes around the pub - mainly in Dutch as it is not on the main tourist list or stomping-ground.

Unfortunately, no IJ beers on when I visited on 21st March, but Palm, Amstel and one or two well-known Belgian beers were available.

I was soon in conversation with a group of friendly locals from Denmark and the Netherlands, one of whom was kind enough to buy me a beer!

A very pleasant place to visit, if you are walking past, step in and have an Amstel.

An Amsterdam classic! Delft tiles, old stove, beer from the T'Ij Brewery and friendly staff.
