This was close to our hotel and as it was a cold night we didnt want to walk too far. We picked this as it seemed to have good ratings. Service was good and friendly and the food and range on the menu also good

Four of us had dinner here on Friday night. The restaurant itself is gorgeous: exposed brick, simple decor and beautiful chandeliers. The waiter who served us was very friendly and polite, so took the edge off what I can imagine feeling snooty and possibly intimidating if it were in London. Three of us had the rib eye steak which was... More

Three of us went here for a casual business dinner on a Monday night. The restaurant was busy all night so we were pleased we had booked and saved any waiting time. The food was excellent, we each ordered a different main spanning Duck, Lamb & Beef. Each dish was prepared and presented to perfection and followed up with an... More

Very nice brasserie with good atmosphere, nice young staff, and good food. We were there Sunday evening after the Marathon, and a lot of guests were celebrating their good results. A nice place both for groups, couples and families.

My wife and had dinner here on our first evening in Amsterdam. The restaurant is charming and very comfortable. The service is friendly, but a little haphazard. I think we were served by all of them at one time and they are not the quickest. That being said, the food was delicious, albeit pricey. I had the Dutch stew and... 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.
