Elegance, tradition and hospitality are the core traits of one of Amsterdam’s finest restaurants, de Silveren Spiegel (the Silver Mirror). The restaurant dates from the Dutch Golden Age, the 17th century, so you can experience the ambiance of this time period. Breathtaking surroundings and a lovely diner. Private rooms for special occasions, parties or business meetings available.

Wow! The food at De Silveren Spiegel provides a feast for all the senses: visually stunning and surprising, bouquets of aromas, creaminess juxtaposed to crunch, explosions of flavor that are delicately balanced with nuances and hints of spices with layers of tastes that come together...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

It is a formal restaurant however smart casual is appropriate. Dress up if you want, many others do but do not rock up in sportswear. It doesn't suit the restaurant or the service, the waiters are smartly dressed in suits.
