My wife and I were in Rembrandtplein looking for somewhere to eat when I spotted this restaurant just off the square. It looked so much more interesting and characterful than those on the square itself. And this proved to be the case. The restaurant was almost full and we were lucky to get on the two remaining tables. The menu... More

Had the portugese chicken dish and it was amazing. For dessert had creme Catalana which had orange in it that was even better! Very busy restaurant had to sit at the bar but got a table in time for our food. Probably the best meal we have had all holiday

This sweet place was right around the corner from my hotel and completely unlike all the places (bars and cafes) on/near the square. Very nice food and service, simple but good wine list. I ate (or drank) there at least 3 times over the course of the week. Easy for one person if you're traveling alone; equally good for a... More

I wandered past and popped in on the off chance reviews were positive and I can see why. I had a Thai Spinach and Prawn soup as a starter, which was a delicious deep green and very fresh and tasty, bursting with flavours. I order the Oriental white rolls with chicken, mint, nuts corriander etc. ( I was kindly warned... More

This is a good restaurant with a warm atmosphere and not too expensive even though it's just by Rembrandt Square. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food excellent (I had very tender lamb steaks with a lovely vegetable pie). But the best for us was the raspberry cheesecake with white choc ice-cream - mmmm.

What a charming place, if you like unpretentious places that don't waste money on décor, and have sweet-natured, efficient waiting staff. We ate there twice, plentifully. One dish was not good - a tough rib-eye steak, but everything else was really tasty and well-presented. Several vegetarian options are on the menu, and there are daily specials too. It seems popular... More

This restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel, but its also really easy to get to from anywhere. The food was delicious, the wine was cheap and best of all the desert....red velvet cake. I couldn't believe it was even on the menu. It was fantastic. We wanted to go back every night just for dessert. Great restaurant,... More
