I love the place and the atmosphere but was disapointed by the food.. We had a vegetable quiche with like an entire brocoli piece in the middle and not much more to it... Not tasty, nor refined at all....

A great chance to see the work of Van Gogh up close. Well laid out and plenty to see. All of the classics, together with other works of Van Gogh and his influencing artists.

Good selection and open windows let the outdoors come in. Can enjoy food and beverage in comfort. Not to noise or as crowded as the museum.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
