Had a confirmed reservation for a nearby Italian restaurant, which went wrong (restaurant closed). We went to George WPA and had some excellent pasta's and drinks. Good service, fair prices and a good atmosphere which is a combination of business people and friends.

The location is frankly all this place has going for it. The food we had at lunch was poor, especially the Reuben sandwich (lots of sauerkraut and a very thin slice of pastrami on whole wheat bread). Re: the service, it's definitely without a smile. There are too many great options in the area (such as The Seafood Bar) to... More

good location, mediocre food, crap service. You get used to pretty ordinary service in the Netherlands, but this is particularly bad, and on a regular basis.

As you can expect from a bistro french style interior and food is what you expect. All tough serving soup for 9 euro's without bread is crazy. But that is the least problem of this bistro. Service is unorganized, slow, clumsy and far beneath standard. You cannot blame the nice young girl and boy. Untrained, no focus on the guests... More

Had high hopes for this restaurant based on appearance. Great location and nice appearance. Unfortunately, one of the fish dishes was cold and the others not particularly good. There are numerous other options in AMS to try before this one.

Simple food, high end prices, service of the staff could be much more better. To crowded with loud people. Nice decoration. But they wait to long to clean empty tables. That should be improved. Food is simple and the prices are high. For a drink on the large terrace it should be fine.

They probably serve the best coffee in whole of Amsterdam, the taste is round, full and yummy. The eggs with salmon are a good portion and were excellent as well . What desperately needs improvement is the service. Waiters are slowly while chatting about, waited ages for the menu and the cheque .

It was that perfect Friday afternoon. Excellent weather and both tourists, locals and the after 6 o'clock businessmen head for the terraces for cocktails and bites. George WPA as usual was very busy but we enjoyed the good wines and food. A very special compliment to Quinten, who was our waiter. In this overcrowded situation it is certainly not easy... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
