Had a business meal there. Food and atmosphere were great. We ordered a bottle of 2014 Pomerol but had the chance to end up with a 2005 of the same which was a remaining stock... Talk about luck! Would definitely go again!

This small, traditional restaurant is to the east of the historic centre and while it may seem off the beaten track, it's barely 15 minutes' walk from Centraal Station. Amsterdam is unlikely to become famous for its gastronomy, unless among those who prefer the heavy,...More

visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at

town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
