Reservations are recommended. Popular place with concert goers to the nearby Concertgebouw. I tried the Creamy soup of sauerkraut with black pudding and Serano-ham crumble -what a treat! For the main dish I took the ribeye with squid and paella à la van Baerle - it was excellent. I have been going to this restaurant two three times a year... More

Went there with a group from work. The staff were very friendly and polite, and made good recommendations on what to eat. Steak was delicious, and the chef recommended to have it medium well, which was delicious. It had a great ambiance, and we had a lovely night. Would love to go back.

This is a very pleasant and elegant neighbourhood restaurant. Service is good and friendly, but a little slow. The food is of fine quality for a substantial, but reasonable price as expected in a restaurant at this level in Amsterdam. They specialize in fish, but the special entrecote menue is a good deal and the meat very good with a... More

I have been to this wonderful place many times, for dinner as well as lunch, but did not have the chance to return until recently. Had a wonderful lunch, a classic steak tartare, well made, accompanied by a very nice glass of wine.

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
