We were seeking a comfortable restaurant, not trendy and no smoking, and came upon this little charmer. Among many eating establishments, most of whom seemed to be focusing on a flair, we were seeking something simple and responding to our individual tastes. La Fogata was very pleasant. Tommy the resturanteur was also our waiter. He celebrated our anniversary with us... More

Come here with some friends to have dinner, ordered some pizza and beer with good price. The pizza is average. The place is nice, the service is very good, the staff is friendly.

I have just returned from Amsterdam after a four day break. I visited here every morning for an English breakfast (€6.50) without drink. I never tasted anything else off the menu but the breakfast was lovely service was fast and the staff were very nice and friendly. Would go back if or when I visit Amsterdam again.

After a day site seeing, we came across this gem. The service was good and the staff friendly. We both had Beef Stroganoff, the food was well presented and the taste was good. If you don't want fries with everything, try this restaurant. It's well worth a visit.

Recently we had a short break in Amsterdam where we stayed in a hotel along Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. By chance, we stumbled into this restaurant and we were so impressed by the friendly staff. In particular, one staff made us so welcome and comfortable that we were back to the restaurant everyday to have our meals. This just shows that friendly... More

Had a savoury pancake,bacon,cheese and mushroom - very nice. Heineken beer was of course good. Husband had a club sandwich. Nothing special. Very friendly waitress. Overall was a good place to stop for lunch en route to the Amsterdam museum.

I was in Fogata with a friend in October 2014. The food was ok, nothing special - not good, not bad. The service was quite fast and standard. Not really friendly, not really unfriendly. I had a skewer with chicken in a peanut sauce. The fries and a little salad came separately in small bowls. The sauce tasted ok and... More

We were en route to Grey Area coffeeshop in Amsterdam but looking to get some "breakfast" at around noon. We came across Fogata and were drawn in by the selection of pancakes. That is exactly what we did! My friend had a more meat based pancake while I went with the strawberries and whipped cream. Pancakes in Holland are much... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
