Understand the place is popular, so the staff may have developed a thicker skin. That said, agree with the patrons who’ve said the staff come across as arrogant and dismissive. Many of my friends are in the service industry so I can empathize, but the...More

We had a wonderful 3 course dinner at the lovely, cozy, popular restaurant. The food was so delicious - we had requested fish and vegetables, all were prepared using local ingredients. And a really nice wine list of primarily French wines. Our waiter was so...More

Firstly, this restaurant is neither racist nor does it only cater to Dutch speakers. These are obviously stupid assertions put forth by obviously stupid patrons. What this restaurant IS, is quite small and very popular. My online reservation was turned down when I initially tried...More

If I had a euro for every disappointing, infuriating meal I’ve wasted hard earned euros on in Amsterdam.. I’d have enough money to move back to the US. Which I’m ecstatic to say I’m finally going to do. To the waitress, Nina, who looks like...More

Very hard to get into but worth the effort. It's a fixed price, no menu kind of place. You don't order, they just bring the food that's being made that night. It was 39 euros for 3 courses . A little more if you have...More

Didn't eat at Cafe De Klepel, just dropped in for a glass of wine on the way home from dinner somewhere else. The wine was good, the service was friendly, and one glass turned into three. Large wine list, with maybe 10 by the glass,...More

Reservations are essential. A group of friends were in Amsterdam together and we reserved a table a month out. The wine list is very long, mostly French. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice. The menu is set with some additional ‘snacks’...More

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

Casual elegant. I observed most of the local repeat clients dressed in more than decent attire. The place commands more than funky clothing, but as with most other restaurants, they want to be more things to more people... More
