Thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. Starter was delicious, brilliant presentation. Main was cooked to our liking and fresh and hot. Dessert extra special. The three course meal was great value and quality to match. Would come again and recommend.

This place is on Van Baerlestraat, very close to museums. We stopped in for lunch. My husband ordered the burger and I had the chicken salad. The burger was good and the salad was very good. There is indoor and outdoor service.

A vibrant French-inflected restaurant close to the museums and the Concertgebouw. Dinner was excellent, service attentive, and food imaginative and well-prepared. It was a lovely evening out in Amsterdam.

Bouf, is great before a concert (be sure to reserve), small outside area, inside seating is comfortable with good atmosphere. Service good and friendly. An omelette, salad, or sandwich make an ideal lunch. Happy to be back and recommend.

good food when it arrived but beware if busy - far too slow to order and for food to arrive - place could not cope with full house

We stopped in for coffee and cake after visiting a museum. Very few patrons at 3 pm. Our surly waitress was annoyed that we were there. I asked her a question about a "butter cake with almond paste" and she sneered as she told me...More

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
