Our concierge at the Renaissance Hotel told us this was a great place, just down the block, which it was. The restaurant is a converted carriage house, with big windows looking out at the street, great for pedestrian-watching while you eat. The service was great, and the food was very good. I had locally caught seafood, and traditional Dutch stew.

I went to van Speijk Restaurant with my mom when she was visiting from out of town and it was great. The ambiance is elegant and lively but not stuffy. I particularly liked the big yellow and white lellies flower arrangement directly under the lights in the back. The tables are a little bit close to other peoples tables but... More

Had tried to get reservations, but they were booked. However, in walking by they made a table for us and we had a delicious dinner. Good choices in wines (not an overly lengthy list); excellent international service staff; wonderfully prepared food. Tried the beef stew. While delicious, it had no resemblance to my concept of a beef stew. It was... More

This place is in a group of 3 or 4 restaurants and we chose it due to good reviews...we were not let down. Very beautiful setting and although it got full, was not noisy. The menu has a good selection of dishes for most palettes and our choices of lamb rack and grilled sirloin were great. Dessert were a special... More

Finished our tour through Europe in Amsterdam. This restaurant was recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint. Everything from the appetizers to the Dutch stew or pork roast dinner was delicious. You have a lot of choices in Amsterdam but I would not pass this one by.

Tried this restaurant last night, did not have a reservation and they were very busy, occupied with a problem with a large group so went down the road but came back to make a reservation for tonight. The guy remembered us, apologized, wanted to seat us right away. When we arrived tonight, again he remembered us again, seated immediately. Server... More

We were staying very near and found this restaurant on trip advisor before our stay. Really lovely and great food and wine, perfect for our first evening after a very early flight.

Staying in Centrum

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.
