Description: Pier 10 restaurant, just behind the Central Station, is an Amsterdam gem overlooking the vast, busy sweep of the River IJ. Built in the 1930���s as a shipping office, Pier 10 is now a beloved, intimate restaurant of two dining rooms, one with direct views of the IJ. The ambience is relaxed and casual, with plants and candles but no white tablecloths or plush upholstery, and yet it is as romantic as it could possibly be. Note that there are two sittings, so the second might be the more romance-inspiring of the two, depending on sunset, moonrise, star alignment. The international menu ranges from classical French and typical Dutch to creatively international with a few Asian influences. Menus change every two to three months. In warm weather, a few tables make their way onto the pier itself ��� pure bliss.

I was there at lunchtime with my wife. The location is great and the staff is kind and helpful but with our great disappointment they serve only snacks or pies for lunch!
Btw the apple pie and both of the snacks (cheese one and meat one) were great.
We found the price not extremely expansive but not cheap at all.

Just had dinner on June 10th at Pier 10. A friend who travels frequently to AMS recommended the restaurant. What a wonderful treat. The seafood was to die for and the Dutch salad with cucumbers was the best ever. The Au Gratin potatoes were fabulous. One of our group ordered steak which is probably not what should be ordered as the seafood was beyond superb. This restaurant is difficult to find. Even the taxi driver did not know where it was. There are no signs other than a couple very small ones in the window. We made reservations too late to get the water front tables but had a great time nonetheless. Highly recommend this restaurant. Will definitely be going there again!

Great location next to Central Station. cheerful friendly service. Excellent, non-fussy food. i had perch which was cooked perfectly, served with a side of mixed vegetables and a lovely au-gratin potato side. Exactly what I wanted. Paired with a Gruner white wine and was completely happy.

Don't be fooled by the location and the building, the food at this restaurant is wonderful. The atmosphere is casual but the service is efficient and friendly. There was a steady turnover of customers, so booking would be advisable. We ate here twice and both times were fabulous. At the moment white asparagus is in season and the chef makes the most of this. I am not a desert person, however they looked delicious and on our last evening I succumbed and tried one, I was glad I did. Visit the restaurant and enjoy!

This is a small restaurant with a very casual atmosphere. However, the cooking is superb and we found it very hard to choose our dishes from the menu. We wanted to eat everything! Just wish we had found it earlier.
