Amazing food accompanied with a beautiful set surrounding of artistic elegance. The staff is very friendly and tends to their every customers needs without coming across as too pushy. The courtyard is the best place to be at hot summer days.

The space is simply perfectly decorated to give off that dark and brooding European vibe. It is simply perfection. I went for lunch by myself and sat myself down in what they referred to as the "queen's throne". It was a table with a large...More

Best nearby
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
