Great food options, although expensive and slightly pretentious. Best to plan ahead with Amsterdam, particularly if you have gluten intolerance.

I loved wandering around here. There is something for everyone! I liked the traditional dutch shops rather than the typically tourist haunts. Lots of places to eat makes it difficult to decide where to go! Definately worth visiting.

Mixed emotions, the Jordaan was real Amsterdam, a local place for local people, now it is becoming more a local place for beautiful people, it is chic, picturesque, arty, foods and becoming expensive, but it is clean, atmospheric and still unique

This area is one of the best and must see areas of Amsterdam. Lots if small antique shops and other oddities alongside cafes and bars. It seems s more chilled out area of the town and a lot of artists live and work in this area

Those quirky shops and labyrinth of streets, that is Jordaan. B'ful neighbourhood in Amsterdam. Amsterdam in itself is quite a small city and hence relatively Jordann might seem a little far but then its totally worth it. Beautiful Buildings, Dutch Architecture, nice coffee shops, it has all what it takes to make an awesome day!

Another great area along with several other historic Amsterdam neighborhoods. Great Architecture, canals & bridges. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops. Well worth exploring the area.

All of historic Amsterdam is beautiful with its architecture and canals and no less the Jordaan district. Full of coffee shops and individual stores its worth a good long explore.

In my opinion, one of the nicest parts of Amsterdam. Lot's of cafes and restaurants offering amazing food, traditional and not so traditional. I imagine this area of Amsterdam is wonderful throughout the year, unfortunately I only got to see it in Autumn and it was breathtaking in terms of the view. Can't wait to come back!
