As visitors to Holland know, the term "Dutch cuisine" can appear to be an oxymoron, since so many poor meals can be had there. Gartine, however, is a gem. They serve lunch and high tea. The lunch I had was a marvelous toasted sour dough bread with a smoked mackerel spread, done with great subtlety. The salad had a very... More

Excellent food and service! We ordered the pancakes and salmon egg benedict, both were fantastic. Double shot cappuccino and latte did an amazing job as well

This is a super little eating place. Our second visit to Amsterdam and a second visit here. I love cooking,this I couldn't even dream of copying; in the form of high tea. The family team do a super job and could fill this place over and over. I would never normally bother with tea , high or otherwise, but this... More

We ate breakfast here everyday during our stay and last year also. It is such a nice place with very good food and quality people. I recommend crepes and salmon benedict eggs.

One of my favorite meals in Amsterdam. Everything is fresh and delicious. The soup ,salads, and bread are amazing. A very popular and cozy place for lunch. Would love to return someday.

I researched this gem before travelling to Amsterdam and so glad I did. I booked a reservation for brunch at 1100 and so pleased I did or we would have struggled for a table as it's super popular by locals. It's potentially the best cafe/restaurant I've been to. It's not formal dinning it's just snug, comfortable and cosy. We had... More

What an awesome traditional but relaxed place for a lunch. Staff is truly caring and helpful. The food is the best, and the cakes are to die for. Will definitely come back to try the high tea, as I was so jealous of the table next to us. However had the best lunch I had in a long time.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
