Absolutely brilliant afternoon tea - that is... glass of fizz, tower of sandwiches, cakes, desserts, sweets...and of course cups of tea! Fantastic and unique room - very stylish, linen tablecloths etc., and perfectly served by Helen and the other staff. Note - you must book this at least 24 hrs in advance. Great for a special occasion.

Seafood was very fresh, steaks were delicious and the sides were also very good. The hors d'oeuvres were delicious, some kind of turkey slider. The service was good, but considering they were not too busy could have been slighter better, but all in all, the maority of our group was impressed. I would come back here again to try their...

Beautiful surroundings but totally spoiled by the rudeness of staff. Took 25 minutes to attract the attention of staff, 20 minutes to wait for a simple order. Some of it was missing and again had to wait for another 30 minutes to get it. The icing on the cake wast tying unsuccessfully to get our bill. Totally blanked several times.... More

I didn't stay at the hotel but the manager let me eat breakfast without being a guest. The meal was a basic buffet and the coffee was good. The interior is fantastic.

The food was just okay. But the service was the worst I have probably ever had. The restaurant was nice inside, but took close to 45 min to get our food then once we were all done took another 30 min to find our waitress to get the check.

Walked in on a early afternoon late December around 16:15 to be greeted by an elderly gentlemen, the greeting itself only included: "we are closed" whereas a good 30% of tables were occupied with people. We wanted to have a beer or drink and shoot off in 15 to 20 minutes. We asked if we could not sit at the... More

Wine and dine among the local Amsterdam people, artists and actors. The ambiance in the dazzling Cafe Americain is dynamic and most of all cozy. It has been called Amsterdam's living room by many and that is exactly how it feels. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, just a coffee or a pleasant drink. At the Cafe Americain or on the amazing terrace during the summer time, you will always feel comfortable
