We ate here on our first night in Amsterdam (in June), because we were very tired and it was near our hotel (Banks Mansion - great place to stay). We enjoyed it so much we came back two more nights, The food was good, with plenty to choose from on the menu. The service was also very good - the... More

Great Italian eater specializing in Pasta, Pizza, and Meat from the Italians. Right on the main drag in Amsterdam, this place provides great eats with a fantastic people watching view. We sat outside so we could watch the cars, bikes, and pedestrians come by, listening to the conversations in 5 second increments. Great spot.

I came in with my friends reading good prices on the menu, but it was all balanced out by the very poor quality. We ordered some pizzas, water and a salad. The water never came, one pizza was wrong, the salad was all watery( probably the washing water) and the overall quality left a lot to be desired. A waiter... More

Visited bells Regina on a day trip to Amsterdam however was far from a pleasant visit. After being served our food half of our party had their meals whilst others were still waiting for food, which was not of the best quality. Then as soon as more guests arrived we were pushed out of our seat and plates removed from... More

Fortunately this restaurant was just around the corner from our rental apartment in Amsterdam. After a LONG travel day from Los Angeles to Heathrow to Amsterdam, my husband went out to find something for dinner (?) and came home with a pizza so delicious (Quattro Stagioni) we might as well have been in Rome - and also good enough that...

Visited this place by chance. We had pizzas and chicken. The pizzas were amazing yet one of us had a calzone which was overfilled and ingredients did not match the ones on the menu. Chicken was cooked and presented well. Service was okayish.

Dropped by for late lunch and that we were able to get something to eat at that hour (4 pm when a lot of places are between lunch and dinner) is about the best I can say about the place. Bread didn't come with olive oil, we had to re-use our cutlery between courses! and the taste of food was... More

We were staying not far from here and popped in quite late on the off chance they'd let us have a take away pizza. They did, and it was delicious. Something with fennel and pepperoni on. The staff were very courteous, polite and welcoming. Would visit here again.

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.
