Description: Dorrius restaurant in the midst of oldest Amsterdam is a blast of authentic, traditional Old Dutch and Old Dutch atmosphere. Founded in 1890, Dorrius has been feeding hungry Amsterdammers with their favourite dishes through two world wars and into the 21st century. Occupying a pair of leaning townhouses, the restaurant is done out in trad style – wood paneled walls, amber-tinted lighting, beamed ceilings, brown palette throughout – filled with polyglot tourists, bustling waiters and irresistible aromas. The starters include Zealand bouillabaisse with garlic crouton, mains include hotchpotch of endive with meatballs, and desserts feature classic Hangop of buttermilk, Dutch rusk, cinnamon, soft brown sugar and cream. A specials menu changes monthly. Groups and private dining are most welcome here, with accommodation for up to 90 guests.
