Very atmospheric Art Deco interior, incredibly busy but nice staff and very good food. Fairly pricey but it's special and a definite experience. Went twice in two days!

This place is interesting because its huge windows offer a perfect view on street life, and the "Art Deco" interior reminds of the past splendor of the late 1950s and early 1960s. We went there for a 5 p.m aperitif and stayed for dinner. I had a jenever and it was served in achilled glass. Perfect! On the side, we... More

The food was superb, we all ordered different things and there were no complaints. I had the wild boar which was beautiful. Yes, it's pricey, but just being inside that beautiful... More

A treat within this hotel, this dining room is beautiful. More importantly, the breakfasts are good. If you like hot porridge, bring your own oats and they will gladly cook it for you!

Located in the American Hotel, the restaurant's art deco design has worn well over the years. On the evening of our visit, the restaurant was fairly quiet; about half of the tables were used to serve drinks only,... More

Went there for a coffee and asked for the Dutch cheeses plater. Asked what's in it. A rude grumpy camp waiter answered "cheese?" asked with what is it coming. Rude grumpy camp waiter said "maybe bread". Plater: big chunks of cheese thrown together with two slices of bread and 1.5 (one and a half) radish. No wonder the place was... More

The burger was great but go away from tourist sites and save money. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is open so if you like to people watch, its cool.
