Description: The building in which Grand Café 1884 is located, called "de Zeevaart", has been empty for years. After a renovation of more than a year we have opened a Grand Café / Restaurant with a beautiful terrace overlooking the IJ that serves as a meeting place and as a perfect location for breakfast, lunch, drinks or dinner. We are open 7 days a week. Our visitors mainly mention the excellent cuisine and delicious dishes and the professional and friendly service. Something that we are very proud of and in which we want to continue to exceed ourselves.

Having read previous reviews on Trip Advisor we tried this restaurant last night. What a fantastic meal! We decided on the three courses for €31.50. Each course was beautifully presented and expertly cooked. We requested a quiet table beforehand and were given one with a view of the river which was lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. We were made to feel very welcome. My compliments to the chef. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

The Grand Cafe 1884 was recommended to us by the concierge of the Movenpick Amsterdam Hotel and he made an excellent recommendation. My wife and I arrived just before noon when seating was available. We both had the chicken club sandwich which comes with homemade French Fries and a crispy hen's egg, which was seasoned and deep-fried. The club sandwich was delicious as was the egg and fries. The service was excellent and the staff were generally concerned whether we enjoyed our meal or not. This is must visit restaurant if you're near Centraal Station in Amsterdam!

We went to Grand Cafe as is was close to our hotel and the central train station. While there was a good selection of basic fare on the menu, the five course chef's menu was a meal to remember - every course delicious and beautifully presented, at a very reasonable price!

We have only 3 nights in Amsterdam. We had our first dinner at the Grand Cafe 1884. An excellent dining experience is determined by ambience, service and food. The food was excellent visually as well as savoury. Recommend the pumpkin soup, the smoked salmon and the satay chicken. The knowledgeable service made the meal. Tonight we made reservations. We were recognized at the door; seated at a window seat and received excellent advice on the wine and beer selections. Recommend the lobster soup, the tomato soup, the perch and the chicken ravioli. The service Stephen provided made our dinner 5 star. In short excellent food service and ambiance
