Every dish in this restaurant is an experience for your senses. I definitely recommend to get the degustation menu in order to get to try as much. Very nice dishes and full of flavor. Very good wine pairing. It costs but it's worth every penny.

We ate here because the Terrace was closed due to high wind and we were pleased. If you live in the US....that Osetra caviar is a steal at 120 euros for 50gms. We all had a one of the specials, which were very good. The wine list is also very reasonably priced. We took a bottle of Billecart-Salmon champagne for... More

Went for lunch with friends for my birthday and it was amazing, the food is out of this world. The service I felt like we were the only clients on the place, we had 4 waiters placing the dishes all at the same time just like the movies. It was amazing.

For a fine dining venue this was one of the most rude experiences I've had. We waited twenty minutes to bring the menu over and we had to ask twice. The waiters kept saying the maitre d would be bringing it over. In the end he just handed it over without so much as a word. The food was all... More

We chose a 6 course tasting menu for lunch as a treat for our honeymoon. We were seated by the window with a fantastic view of the canal. The food were all beautifully presented and tasted very good but I had the strangest most baffling experience with one of the waiters. After one bite, I noticed a piece of hair... More

Every dish from amuse-bouche to dessert is exquisitely presented. You can really appreciate the creativity and passion that goes into every dish. Service is excellent in a beautiful setting next to the canal. Definitely THE fine dining restaurant to go to in Amsterdam.

I attended a group event tasting menu dinner at this top destination restaurant in The Netherlands. The restaurant is actually in the Hotel de L'Europe, and our group of some twenty-five business associates arrived by Canal cruise boat. The dinner was held in a private Belle Époque dining room. I was expecting great experience commensurate with two Michelin Stars and... More

First class. The service of the gentlemen they call waiters (more like high-class butlers) was absolutely second-to-none. I was there with my wife celebrating our one-year anniversary since we met and everything from the little additional appetisers served before our starters and after our mains, to the down-to-earth chit-chat by the staff, not to mention the excellent food. If I... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
