Amazing traditional Kaiseki cuisine. Apparently the oldest traditional Japanese Restaurant in Europe (since about early 80s), Delicious Bento Box for lunch, great Dinner at the Bar and one more Restaurant I have to check out, Sazanka. They both have 1*.

The restaurant has a view of the magnificent garden, and the interior design, along with the kimonos worn by the staff give you the feeling of being in a small Japanese peace of paradise. We had the chef's tasting menu,... More

The highlights for me were the sushi, sashimi and -surprisingly- the desert. I was slightly disappointed by the shrimp... More

First we had lunch here. The Bentobox is absolutely great. Service is very nice and friendly. In the evening we came back for dinner and they remembered the welcome drink we had during lunch so we were advised to have the other welcome drink (sparkling sake). You can choose from several different menus or just order a la carte. We... More

Nice Japanese restaurant in Hotel Okura. Authentic Japanese, though portions were very small and little variety of sushi. the menu formulas, though expensive, were the most affordable.

Michelin starred restaurant at Hotel Okura (who has two other Michelin star by the way). Front of the house was pleasant, decor was nice with a japanese garden outside. The waitresses were all dressed up in kimonos so I thought that was cool. Arrived for dinner with reservations that was booked by the concierge at our hotel. She initially booked... More

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.
