I was lucky to get a table for lunch on a late Sunday afternoon in January. The restaurant was full even though it was passed 2 o'clock, I understand why. Located by one of the many canals, a bit off the beaten track, I would never have found this place without Tripadvisor. I definitely like their pick 'n' mix concept... More

We asked esther from the picnic company to arrange a rental boat and a tapas picnic. She was very helpful giving us tips were to go and enjoy the meal and drinks. The picnic itself was delightful, lots of little snacks and maybe even to much for both of us! Highly recommended!!!

We had a great tapas picknick with a picnic basket full of delicious food and wine (there was too much for us to finish). This sure was a pleasant surprise and highly recommended for anyone visiting Amsterdam for a couple of days!

This review is much too harsh. I remember the person who wrote this. She wanted to make a reservation for a group, for the next day. Unfortunately, we had a reservation for a big group that day. I did offer her an alternative to order a menu which was possible. She wasn't satisfied and hung up on me. It's not... More

What a terrible disappointment. Tried to order a picnic for 8 well ahead of the website's 24 hour deadline. Order was simply refused because it was "too late" for such a large order. This left us high and dry as we had fully counted on this company's service to host our guests. This company invites customers to 'challenge them ....'.... More

Great food, terrific service. Being a tourist in Amsterdam, this is a place to never forget. We hired a small boat and picked up a gourmet picnic

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
