Great restaurant on the 7th floor with good prices. The library is very large ; the lit book shelves are an eye-grabber.

After a busy day of sightseeing, we stopped at the Central Library before heading to our hotel. On the 7th floor of the library there is a cafe with fabulous views of the city. There are both outdoor and indoor seating areas. It is a great place to have a snack and cup of tea while reflecting on this wonderful city after a day of seeing its sights.

Well worth a visit for several reasons. Firstly, the view of Amsterdam from the rooftop cafe. On a beautiful sunny day, which we had, we looked out on a fantastic, panoramic view of Amsterdam, whilst enjoying a snack from the restaurant. We then took the escalators down to the Children's Library to view the Mouse Mansion, recommended by a very helpful member of staff, even though we didn't have our children with us!
Better than any dolls house I've ever seen. Could have spent ages looking into all the various, tiny rooms!

Went to floor 7 for the views and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful. We were there on a glorious day and spent an hour or so looking out over the balcony. Library is a livery design and well worth a visit.
