Good food for very little money

This restaurant is right off the Rembrantplein frequented by tourists and locals but very few people know about it or notice it. This is really a hidden germ: the food is good and you will be pleasantly surprised by the prices you see on the menu: main dishes start from 10 euro. The food is cooked... read more

Amsterdam was a city of herrings, clams, and shrimps. Now you can have a hot dog, pizza or kebab on every corner. The Samulewicz's is unique. You can get here really excellent meals but don't omit pheasant, which is very rare in even top restaurants. The other choice give you satisfaction as well. You'll be pleased with the service.

My friend and I had decided before leaving the UK, that we were going to have at least one meal at a decent restaurant. Having looked online at various so called "Fine Dining" establishments, we stumbled on Szmulewicz entirely by accident whilst out walking on Sunday evening. I took a peek through the window to find a packed house of... More

I stayed in the Rembrandt Square area and wanted to eat in the area one night. I wandered around but no restaurant seemed to have the right "vibe" until I happened upon Szmulewicz. It seemed to be filled with locals the night I was there, which I loved. I sat at the bar and was very comfortable being there alone.... More

On our last (freezing) night in Amsterdam, we were looking for a cozy, warm place with basic good food. The menu at Szmulewicz looked good and the place was packed, so we figured they had to be doing something right. Well, we were half right... The food (once we finally got it) was delicious. We both had the linguini with... More

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular. Whether you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast, shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get lost in a moody meander and a key component to any sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws include the Anne Frank House, the Bloemenmarkt floating flower market, an enviable assortment of independent boutiques along De Negen Straatjes, and of course all of Grachtengordel’s lovely canals and bridges.
