We had a high tea here with a group of 8. We had a soup, quiche, sandwiches, cake, macorones, brownies etc. It was all very good. Service was really the best you can have. Very friendly and helpful. Location is good. Two stops with the bus from central station. There is also a terrace looking over the water.

Very friendly, great food, fantastic location at the harbor. Chicken sate and Bickers roll is a recommendation like all the monthly specials. My favorite neighborhood restaurant.

The owners are very welcoming and service throughout was great. They even do Holtkamp croquettes. We had lovely starters crouquettes and soup; but mains were less successful. My oriental chicken satay was so... More

We are staying with friends about 3 blocks away from this place, and happened to see it while on a walk. The staff is extremely gracious and helpful and the food was outstanding. I had a fish special of the month and my wife had the warm Camembert and green salad. Most of you won't find this by accident like... More

We had delicious shrimp croquettes (great flavour and a crispy, light shell) and a mountain of spare ribs. Friendly, helpful staff in a quiet location.

We found this place randomly by visiting the neighborhood when spending the weekend in Amsterdam. Lucky enough, as we were looking for a place that was not full of tourists .. and we found the perfect one! The place is very cute and cosy, with a very original decoration. The food was super nice too - I tried Charlie's heaven... More

This restaurant with amazing view over the harbor is a little gem in Amsterdam. Besides a beautiful location the menu with fresh fish, meat and vegetarian dishes is the perfect way to enjoy a candlelight dinner. The power of this restaurant is the personal touch and the visit of the staff after every dish. They know the wine and could... More

My girlfriend and I were visiting for valentines weekend, we tried a good selection of highly recommended restaurants and I have to say Bickers was my favourite. Charming, stylish, super friendly and welcoming, and to top it all off the food was delicious. We will definitely be going again on our next visit this summer!

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
