Nice place for Indonesian Rijsttafel

Kantjil & de Tiger is in business for more than 20 years and is has been a while since I've been there. It's just opposite to the Tram 2 Station Spui close in the old city centre in a traditional brick building. Yesterday I took a group of 14 colleagues to this place and we enjoyed a very nice... read more

What we didn't like: - Waitresses are very slow, took more than 20 mins to take our... More

The service and food was amazing. I ate the vegan dishes but my friends had meat dishes too. Everything was very tasty and the atmosphere was very nice. Be careful when you're ordering: if it says it's spicy they really mean it :)

As we were a group of around 20 we had a whole mix of dishes brought to share. All were really tasty & I wish I could have tried them all. The staff were really happy & helpful.

I have a gripe that in many restaurants when more than one person orders something that is obviously going to be... More

I grew up with quite some Indonesian friend. This lunch brought back those memories. I had their Bambi goring with gado gado and spicy chicken. Beautiful real Indonesian tastes. Next time in Amsterdam I'll be back

We were recommended to this restaurant by our walking tour guide and thought we would give it a try. It was wonderful! Yes, it was crowded, but that is a sign of a good restaurant. The first night we ate outside on the sidewalk cafe and the portable heaters kept us warm. The next night (yes, we went right back!),... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
