Hi Mr. Educator, Good to know that you enjoyed yourself. Hope that your local son, his boy friend and your wife enjoyed more of their choice to have our Indonesian tasting menu than you did. Maybe was our special food just not your thing. Sorry...More

We wanted to try an Indonesian influenced meal while in Amsterdam given the colonial history and weren’t disappointed. The tasting menu was varied and excellent and the recommended wine was perfect. Well worth a visit!

Hi Ros, thank you for your lovely review. We love little foodies who like to try our not spiced and not so childish food :-).

Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically
significant as it is perennially popular. Whether
you’re a history buff, architecture enthusiast,
shutterbug, or fashionista, odds are you’ll find the
Amsterdam you're looking for while roaming around the
Grachtengordel (Canal Ring). A brilliant place to get
lost in a moody meander and a key component to any
sightseeing trip to Amsterdam, this area's major draws

Your about 3.5Km away. So approximately a 45 minute walk! If you are visiting the Anne Frank Museum it's only five minutes from there. Hope this is helpful, have fun in Amsterdam!

Open only for dinner, starting at 6pm. Adventurous food in a Cosmopolitan relaxed setting, located in the heart of Amsterdam's most beautiful canal area. MAX is a place to explore a new International cuisine with the additional flavours of MamaMax' traditional Indonesian home cooking. No nonsene good food, fresh and sparkling spiced. Forget the Michellin star's copies on your plate but enjoy simply our well cooked classics with a new creatieve touch. Guests minded and friendly service. MAX has a short uncomplicated interesting wine list, excellence wines for reasonable prices. Seperate open room for function up 20 persons. Mondays open on request for business groups.
