Things to do in Amsterdam!?

What canal boat trip would you most recommend? (value for money)

Any nice restaurants? It's boyfriends birthday so I want to take him on a nice meal! Any place apart from Fish places haha.

Best place to hire bikes? (would ride them for the day while site-seeing.)

Any fun places to go? (Like the pub which has a mini golf course)

For restaurants, if you do not understand Dutch, IENS is not for you. I prefer Dining City (http://www.diningcity.com/en/amsterdam) which can be read in English.

All the canal tours are basically the same (and the size of the canal boats is a constant blight to other private boaters in the main canals). If you really want to see the city from the canal perspective, you can rent a small electric boat for a few hours and guide yourself in any way you want to go. Make it more fun by picking up some snacks and drinks to enjoy while you motor along.

I rented bikes from Mac bike near the park, a bit of practice was needed in relative safety before we ventured out on the roads!

There are lots of museums to suite every taste but some cost more than others, the sex museum is cheep however in my opinion best visited after a coffee shop.

There are again places to eat for every taste and budget it depends what you're looking for.

The zoo is a good place to visit, especially if the weather is nice, if you book tickets online before you go it's cheaper.

Don't over plan things... my husband took me to Amsterdam not long after we met and walking around taking it all in and going with the flow is half the fun of the city.
