A few minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal. The area is very busy with lots of cafes to choose from. We had the ribs which was really, really good and the scallops. Great customer service. Affordable. Nice location.

Nice enough food but you feel a bit pressured into sitting down after the slightest glimpse of the menus stand. The waiters immediately pounce on you. Decent enough prices for the location.

While waiting for our tour to Bruges this morning, we decided to have breakfast at this cafe which is just a few steps away from the travel agency. The service staff is friendly and helpful so we sat down without checking out the next door cafe. While sitting there, we observed that the menu displayed by the next door cafe... More

Decided to lunch on "finger food" - something to eat with my hands ! The onion rings and chicken wings were yummy and filling. And the hot sauce is stronger than back in North America ! Reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere. Attentive staff. All round good time !

You really pick this place for the location. It's a cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating, right on the main strip, and perfect for people watching. We had really good service outside, with funny and engaging waiters (which wasn't our typical experience) and the food was good. It wasn't exceptional, but we didn't expect it to be. The focaccia...

My husband and I stopped off for breakfast. It was lovely and not too expensive. Really enjoyed the latte! Nice location next to Amsterdam central station with a lovely seating area outside to watch the hustle and bustle. Would defo stop off there again!

Convenient location, adjacent to the bustling intersection near Central Station. Casual Italian décor and nice atmosphere. Service was good initially, although felt rushed at the end of our meal as the restaurant started to get busy (ie literally as soon we finished our meals they had immediately cleared the plates then table). Okay value for money considering its location. Good... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
