Great little restaurant. Went there twice. Owners very friendly and helpful managing to squeeze us in despite all the tables being reserved. Food was delicious, so fresh and full of flavour which made us eat very slowly to savour every mouthful!! Loved the crockery and the quirkiness too. A special place indeed. Ann & Brian

The center/old city of Amsterdam is the least pleasant part of the city (walk a few blocks west to the Jordaan district for the best part) but Gartine is a gem worth searching for to get away from the mob when you make the obligatory trek to Dam Square to see the Palace and Nieuwe Kerk (site of recent coronation)....

Lovely, cozy and tasty. There was no table when we arrived so we said we'll wait for one, it was 10 min WORTH of wait! A definite must.

After reading all the amazing reviews and considering this place became number 1, I wanted to desperately come here and was just afraid there wouldn't be any table free as we hadn't made any reservation. Well, we were very lucky, last free table, amazing small place where you feel like in someone's living room and the service... Kind, polite with... More

My partner and I go to Gartine at least once a month and always take visitors there, it's a great little place, the breakfasts have always been top class as has the service. My only advice is to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Took us about 30 min walk to get there only to find out they are on vacation and closed until August 6. `if you are planning on going this week....you may just be out of luck like we were. We are leaving Amsterdam on August... More

Closed on mondays en tuesdays. We have reserved for wednesday but it was already full when we arrived. Finally got a day later a table. Food was not special and reasonable on the expensive side. Room is very small. We are very disappointed.

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.
