Cobra Cafe is nicely located @ Amsterdam’s museums gallery, just between the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. It is a good place with fair prices and decent food, that is a very good option to take a breather. Food options are mainly burgers and...More

Had dinner here. A nice lamb tagine, and mixed grilled fish. No alcohol as it was Ramaddan, which was not a problem for us. Lovely service. Cost: 36.50 eu. Recommend.

Opposite the Rijksmuseum, we found a table outside in the afternoon sun. Three Old Amsterdam cheese sandwiches with fig jam, rocket and walnuts and one smoked chicken and mayo sandwich. All were very fresh and surprisingly full of ingredients. All washed down by glasses of...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
