The restaurant took 2h30 to serve salads. Coffe machine broken. Didnt take visa or any international credit cards for that matter. Slow and poor service. Stay away from this place.

Sitting by side of the lake was beautiful but that was all. The waitress was grumpy, the main course was delayed by over an hour and when it arrived my tuna steak was so overcooked it was tasteless. Won't be going back.

A great spot on the river to sit for drinks and soak up the countryside, river and relaxed atmosphere. I was very lucky as the sun was shining and the sky was blue but I think this classic Amstel spot would be cool anytime of...More
