Taste of food is definitely a winner. Not an extensive selection of menu but it is selection is good. Nice ambience and fantastic service and attitude of restaurant staff is a big plus. Will definitely dine here again

I sat near the open kitchen and the chef talked to me since I was dining alone. The lamb chops were delicious and I also had the mushroom risotto another night and really good! Super staff!

We had breakfast in the Scossa Restaurant two days in a row. The food options were varied and plentiful and except for the steam-table eggs, everything was very, very tasty. They do make omelets on request, so I'd advise going that route if you can.

The food options and service were fine. Lots of hot and not breakfast choices for the different international guests. It seems pricey for breakfast (25 - 30 euro). Otherwise fine.

Nice little spot if you sit outside... it is located on a sidestreet of the hotel. Service was very slow, but we didnt mind, was nice to rest and sit back, but if you are in a hurry dont stop here. We ordered wine and beer and they were reasonably priced. 4 euros.. Ordered 4 different tapas, very good but... More

Sometimes we go for dinner in a hotel and this time we thought let's go to Scossa. The service is really friendly, prices reasonable. Love the Italian menu like fried vegetables and steak. For dessert pannacotta, simple and good.

We had a nice breakfast here. We had to ask for the ala cart menu as when you walk in they just assume you want the buffet breakfast which is about 30 euro. We ate ala cart and spent half as much. We had the Amsterdam pancakes with apples and cinnamon and bacon and sausage, OJ and Milk and Coffee.... More

Originally I was reluctant on going here because I thought it would be an overpriced hotel restaurant serving only large meals. My wife and I tend to be light eaters, particularly in the evening. To our surprise they were serving tapas style small plates. We shared three different plates with the scallops being the most enjoyable. There was also a... More

My husband and I were tired after traveling and were looking for a good meal in our hotel. We had a very nice meal in the Scossa restaurant. We had scallops, grilled chicken, goat cheese tortelloni and fried seafood platter. Everything arrived promptly and tasted very nice. It's tapas, so portions are small.

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
