We arrived on a quiet monday and had a very nice lunch. The location is very convenient for the plantage area and the tram stops outside. The place is clean and tidy with service typical for Amsterdam. The 3 course meal was of high quality and we had some good wine as well. I did not think the decor was... More

We came here out of the blue as we approached a cozy square near Artis zoo. We ordered a burrata salad as a starter, the Plaice as main course which was perfectly cooked and finished off with coffee and friandises. We were warmly greeted by a young couple of new owners who were very attentive and hospitable towards us during... More

Had dinner here with 3 friends and we were all very much impressed. Food is innovative without being pretentious and flavours that really spoke to everyone. Small menu with an option to do a 2, 3 or 4 course meal. I would definitely return. If you are staying at the Tropen Hotel or the Manor Hotel, this restaurant is within... More

Great place, easy to get to on the trolley line from Centraal Station. I had the 3 course option and it was plenty of food, in case you're wondering. Goat cheese cold first course, foamed lobster bisque 2nd course, skate fish for 3rd course; house Chardonnay. The restaurant was recommended in an Amsterdam city magazine. For the quality I think...

Excellent French style cuisine with modern design. Including the art on the walls. Cozy, lips all restaurant on the corner of Alexanderplein, opposite Tropen Museum. Outdoor seating as well. Great food and wines, friendly, efficient service. Had a great dinner. Highly recommended.

We went here for lunch, and it was perfect - as usual. First of all, the host Gijs is an excellent host: friendly, yet professional. Next, the menu has many choices that I would consider, and all the dishes we had were beyond "good"! Preceded by an interesting amuse ("bitterbal" of bouillabaisse") we had the best starter: smoked duck with... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
