The food combinations were weird with the tapas and the taste was not as good as we expected. The tables are also way to close to each other. We would not go here again.

We booked the place because it is near to the Stopera, so convenient. The welcome was friendly and there was enough attention from the staff. Food was okay but nothing special, rice served with the dishes was not tasty. Quality wine below average. Good coffee...More

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)

Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
