Four of us ate here on two evenings, and thoroughly enjoyed them both. The food was superb, the wine went down equally well, the staff were friendly and seemed to have time to be able to talk to us. There was nothing not to like, and the prices were by Amsterdam standards, reasonable.

We both had the set trios for 25 E each. We had pea soup and tomato soup, stampott with kale/meatball and salmon with bernaise sause, and a lemon dessert with raspberry glaze that was lovely. The atmosphere was charming, service was prompt, and the price was reasonable. We really enjoyed our meals here.

Restaurant Haesje Claes is across the street (Spuistraat 275) from another ancient and excellent restaurant called Restaurant d'Vijff Vlieg that I reviewed some years back. The menu offers dishes that are excellent during a cold winter day. I am not so sure whether I would choose some of their dishes during the summertime. I suppose they will vary their menu.... More

A classic Dutch restaurant. Oak panels. Has character. We ate liver & bacon, chicken, and fillet steak: all were excellent. Brilliant desserts too. Decent beer list topped off a great evening. I'd read a review where stiff and formal service was mentioned: we didn't find this to be the case at all. It's a proper restaurant, not a caff; but... More

Really lovely traditional restaurant.Our first visit was somewhat marred by a table of Dutch people who were very drunk and complaining, howeve, beautifully handled by Lily the waitress. Lily is still there and her colleagues gave excellent service with recommendations for the menu, etc. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent choice for dinner. A traditional type of restaurant with wood panel surroundings. Dutch specialties on the menu and many, helpful staff. An extensive drinks menu with a range of Dutch beers to choose from.

We ate the Dutch traditional dish "Stamppot". It was fine, but nothing special to be honest. The restaurant is old fashioned with its interior and cosy. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who wants to get a taste of Amsterdam and its traditional cuisine.

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.
