Very enjoyable!

This "rice table" restaurant gave us an enjoyable time, as we made our way to the Van Gough Museum. It was crowded, but that just added to the communal ambience.

This Indonesian restaurant is very close to the museum district making it ideal for a filling meal after wandering around there. You might want to book though, as it's reputation on Tripadvisor seemed to have brought us and other tourists there and it was quite full even before 7pm on a weekday. Not sure of what to order, we went... More

Went here with my husband bc it was recommended by a friend. The food was absolutely delicious. Lots of different spices and seasoning. The peanut sauce dip was unlike any other peanut sauce I ever had. My curry coconut chicken was very tender and flavorful. My spring roll and vanilla ice cream were also treats. Never tasted anything like that... More

Amsterdam is not known primarily for its gastronomic traditions but if you are looking for Indonesian cooking, this is the place to come. We had the Ramayana set menu, about 15 different small dishes, all nicely served and delicious, ranging form the mild to the very spicy and accompanied by Bitang Indonesian beer. Very helpful Indonesion staff who make every... More

The Emptynester's have been fortunate to enjoy rijsttaffel for a third time! We still heartily recommend Kartika for quality, service, and value. Located in the Overtoom area a little WSW of downtown AMS, they are worth the tram ride. Key recommendation - make a reservation! If you can't figure out the phone system, ask your hotel for help or stop... More

Up there with one of the best tapas style meals I've ever had. Every dish was delicious and the service was excellent. They had the balance between leaving you to enjoy your meal and being there when you need something spot on. They even provided some complementary ice cream at the end which was a nice surprise. Best evening meal... More

Firstly, the service was brilliant. From start to finish. We arrived as a group of 7, hoping to reserve a table for later in the evening. However, when this wasn't possible we were offered an alternative time - despite the restaurant being very busy. They squeezed us in, on a table that had been reserved for an hour and a... More

Lovely food , expertly prepared and served. The wait staff are Extremely helpful and patient with the novice Indonesian foodie. Fabulous atmosphere . Must book as extremely busy. Unlikely to get a table without a reservation. We found it very good value for money and the wine was quality and not overpriced. Worth seeking out if visiting Amsterdam .
