Had the pleasure of dining here our last night in Amsterdam. Atmosphere was terrific, with a wonderful view from the small, intimate dining room. Service was attentive and impeccable; food was incredible! Interesting choices and the flavors were outstanding. A five star experience!

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
