As a tourist visiting the area, this restaurant was recommended by the concierge. It looks deceptively small from the front but typically it rambles on into many different rooms. It has an authentic atmosphere. Service is quick, efficient, friendly and helpful. We ordered the set menu of three courses. The pea soup is fabulous and home made. The tomato soup... More

We stumbled across this place after walking for miles. We had looked at loads of restaurants and nothing took our fancy. This didn't look much From the outside but we were so hungry by now that we decided we would eat here instead of wandering around for hours more. What a pleasant surprise inside. Very cosy and authentic. We ordered... More

Haesje Claes is decorated in a traditional Dutch style with local food to match. We dined on Anna Dutch caviar followed by grilled salmon and Mussels - all excellent. We finished off with a small sensible sized plate of local cheese. And drank a bottle of French Savignon Blanc Monterre. All in all an excellent dining experience and to be... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant which happened to be very good. We started with a mixed platter of house specialities. It was really tasty with an unusual mustard soup, great herring and lots more. Main course we chose a local specialty of beef stew with mashed potatoes red cabbage and apple. Wholesome foiling and tasty. All in all our expectations... 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.
