Good food and accommodating staff who managed a table for 8 people on a busy Friday. Although we booked through "theFork" booking service, the restaurant were unaware and still made us feel welcome. The food was delicious.

This charming restaurant is in a lovely section of Amsterdam, right off the Rembrandtplein. I had an amazing chicken tajine in a single size tajine that was divine and my family also had great tasty dishes.

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

Szmulewicz is since 1990 a small, informal, cosy restaurant (with terrace) in the centre of Amsterdam, near Rembrandtplein. The name suggests a Polish kitchen, but the chefs have different nationalities, and are inspired by the international (Mediterranean) kitchen. Dutch dishes are also being served. We all speak English, and some of us speak French and German as well. Since the place is frequently visited by locals, please make a reservation!
