We waited way over an hour for the entree which was very dry fish. Do not waste your money on this place.

You can order some really amazing food or make a meal from the appetizers. Reasonably attentive waiters who understand Americans want to eat and run. But that's a habit we need to change.

The reality was disappointing and the food was definitely 'good' but not 'exceptional'. We ordered the chefs menu (a tasting menu) and were treated to a significant series of courses. The presentation was good but relied somewhat on the theatrical... More

We had been here before a few times and were never disappointed, this time was different. We ordered the Kayseki seasonal menu with wine-sake pairing, the quality of ingredients was good but not exceptional, the presentation of the dishes was nothing special, all in all the meal lacked the feeling of absolute perfection that I remembered and I was expecting....

I visited Amsterdam in June 2016 and had a lunch in Yamazato. I took a seasonal lunch menu and did not regret. The price was 50 euro for the set menu. You can call me snobbish but I think it was too low price for such a good quality lunch. There was plenty of food and the staff were very... More

Ciel Blue was booked and we were very tired so we decided to eat at Serre so as to not have to walk anymore. The food was just OK and the service uneven. My husband ordered a drink but as the restaurant does not have a bar they order it from the hotel bar across the lobby and it took... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
