We visited La Rive in the Amstel Hotel to celebrate our anniversary - as it was our first visit to the restaurant & it recently lost it's one Michelin star rating, we were unsure what to expect. We were not disappointed - the food was inventive, the staff very attentive and the wine was exceptional. Situated on the Amstel, the... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at La Rive. We both had the tasting menu-which we thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant were very accommodating with dietary requirements. Service was excellent- the waiters were very attentive. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Treated my husband for his birthday. Absolutely wonderful experience. Beautiful table overlooking the water. Fabulous greeting and exceptional service in every area of our visit. Careful, knowledgeable, but unpretentious explanation of each course. Beautifully presented food with great attention to detail and creativity. Very imaginative food combinations that we have never tried before. The entire evening and meal were a... More

Once again our dining experience at La Rive was excellent. The service, quality of the food and overall experience was as good as it gets. Probably the best Restaurant in Holland and certainly up there with the best in Europe.

The first impression has already tell everything we are at the right place. I found this place extremely friendly, fun, laugh, jokes everywhere. But what you have on your plate and what you have in your glass is remarkably serious! It was a short travel to discover the beauty of our planet. Exciting wines and beautiful plates with fantastic flavors.... More

We splurged on the full tasting menu and wine pairing, and everything was great. Don't make after dinner plans though, we got there at 7 thinking we could do a 10pm canal cruise after, but the pacing of the courses had us there until after 11pm. Four hours is a long dinner, but we left content.

This is truly a dining experience and we got stuck straight in to the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. My wife is a strict veggie and so her wine pairings were different to mine; this is always a good sign. Special thanks to Ted, who is the best Sommelier we've had.... More

This restaurant has lost its Michelin star. This is incomprehensible, since the overall experience is really at star level. The food is very tasty and attractively decorated. The service is impeccable, the sommelier gives expert and pleasant advise and the location is beautiful. Really worth a trip and they also have valet parking.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
