I went there with my wife and we had one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was absolutely fantastic, beautifully presented and made with fresh ingredients, and with a lot of care and thought. Every piece of each dish has been smartly designed and everything blends perfectly together. The service was top-notch, they were very kind,... More

Went there on a Saturday. Although the restaurant is small, the service was super slow. We were so tired of waiting that we skipped dessert. The starters were delicious, but the main course was below average. The wine by glass was not good.

Wow, we called in after reading the other great reviews and we're lucky to squeeze in without a pre booking. It's just outside the city centre, but within easy walking distance from the Manor hotel where we were staying. The food here is superb, on another level, and the staff were very friendly. Definitely a fine dining experience, and a... More

We had a wonderful meal at Elkaar during a recent visit to Amsterdam. We walked through a downpour to get there, but the effort was well worthwhile. Excellent food, cozy environment, and attentive service. The co-owner, who is originally from Colombia, was very welcoming and attentive.

Last night we enjoyed a lovely dinner with a group of 6 in restaurant Elkaar. The interior design of the restaurant is very cozy and romantic. Elkaar is owned by a couple, which you are able to notice immediately. They are very passionate and have a hospitality heart. Top service and eye for detail. The food is amazing. The plates... More

We decided to try this place based on reviews on Tripadvisor. It is only a 10 minute walk from our house. We were pleasantly surprised by the warm reception and the diversity of the menu. We each had a wonderful lobster bisque, with large chucks of lobster inside. My wife had a shrimp tempura appetizer and I had the Gravlox.... More

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

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.
