“A great slice of local in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

When we asked our host for a restaurant he would recommend, it was Cafe Zurich.
I'm very glad we went and we were not disappointed. A cool feature of this restaurant is that they accept online bookings, ideal if you don't have the number.

It's a very cosy place in the winter (when we went), with a beautiful hearth/fire in the centre of the restaurant. It is a great atmosphere and. Th staff are very helpful and adapt to accommodate tourists with ease.

Food and drink wise it has an excellent variety, from grill to café style cuisine with decent portions for those that may be extra hungry ;) We were able to order wine by glass or bottle, but found the per glass option to be better value.

I can imaging this place is a gem in summer as it is set in a square with the opportunity for outside seating/dining. As it is, the exterior is cool & quirky and the restaurant looks like a mushroom - you won't miss it.
