Delighted to have stumbled upon this great little restaurant. A pleasant, quaint old-fashioned interior leads to a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Very nice multilingual staff are a credit to their employer. The 'Amsterdam' set menu is great value; my choices - tomato soup, chicken main, apple tart and espresso - were without fault. It is popular with tourists, but that's... More

I visited here with friends on a trip to Amsterdam. When we arrived, despite having a booking, we did have to wait for some time in the doorway while a table was cleared for us. Although it was a little confusing as the person who first greeted us did not come back to serve us, and someone else eventually took... More

The waiters reaction was even worst than the RAT. We were in the middle of dinner and there it was a rat just underneath our table. The waiter came as a response to our screaming and told us to shut up because there were more clientes. He started taking our plates and he said "fine, I'll move you to another... More

A cosy week restaurant and very friendly and busy. Went there on first night and hubby had a typical Dutch stew and I had two delicious starters. Couldn't fault it - an excellent place for Sunday night supper!

What an unusual and delightful find. My wife and I ended up here after we couldn't get into the Five Flies, but I'm thrilled, for without even having stepped foot in that establishment, I cannot believe it would be as spellbinding as this place. We stepped in from the cold night, and trod through some narrow old passageways to one... More

This was a great dinner. They had a completely gluten free menu for me. I was able to order the Amsterdam special, it was a starter, main, dessert and coffee or tea at the end for €24. It was fantastic as I had the tomato soup to start and they had a warm gluten-free roll for me, which is always... More

Fantastic authentic dutch food. Loved it. Went back a few times during a long weekend in Amsterdam. Impressed every time, but the fish stock pot was my favourite.

Bit of a rabbit warren but a lovely place with great "local" atmosphere despite being in the centre of town. Staff are friendly enough. Really warming pea soup!

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.
