The menu was segmented into Rive Droite and Rive Gauche with flavors tending on one side with traditional flavor while the other flowed towards the Far East. But first came the delightful amuse bouche. We enjoyed a popsicle shaped duck mousse topped with white chocolate inspired by local lands. The other amuse bouche was from Asian inspired flavored with shrimp,... More

A beautiful view of the Amstel is only a small part of this dining experience. The food is outstanding -- even an amuse bouche called Tomato of Roger Rassin is amazing. There are two menus, both of which are wonderful. That said, I highly recommend the five course meal and not six courses. It's a lot of food, and a... More

There are a few "star restaurants" and "star chefs" in town that offers overpriced menus... La Rive is not one of them! I was pleasantly surprised the other week when we opted for a 5 course fine dining dinner. Such a pleasant welcome by the staff and beautiful view with the evening lights over the river Amstel.. Exciting range of... More

When booking, we did not realise that the restaurant is inside the InterContinental hotel so the decor is a bit dated / hotel-like (especially the carpets and curtains) but we had a beautiful table overlooking the water which is incredibly calming. The tasting menu was incredible (we chose the two different options respectively). The wagyu beef was the highlight for... More

We visited La Rive in the Amstel Hotel to celebrate our anniversary - as it was our first visit to the restaurant & it recently lost it's one Michelin star rating, we were unsure what to expect.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
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) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
