Having struggled to find decent vegetarian food, we stumbled on La Place and had the best experience. The atmosphere was made by the friendly, happy staff - they went out of their way to help one another to make sure we got what we needed, and the fresh (made right in front of us) Thai food was better than I've...

We were walking around and got caught in the rain and decided to find a coffee shop. We came upon this place and were happy to discover what is parallel to Movenpick in Canada. We had coffee with beautiful pastries. The food looks delicious and tastes delicious. If we are in the neighbourhood, we will return for a meal.

Good place to enjoy an informal lunch/dinner with friends or family. Big place with food from all over the world - from pizza, noodles, curries to salad, meat and fish . It was a bit expensive, taking into account that you self yourself however the quality of the food makes it worthwhile. Coffee is not that good but orange juice... More

Just wanted some light lunch and discovered this company. Simply amazing. Work & life balance would be definitely better if we were able to have this locally and to this standard. You can select hot or cold food; different cuisines/ingredients - often cooked right in front of you; an array of freshly made desserts, salads and smoothies. Excellent staff, very... More

This is close to the flower market and we popped in for lunch. My husband went for Asian soup and bread followed by hot chocolate. I went for stir fry rice with prawns. Basically you select your own veg pass them to the chef who then puts your selected meat or fish in wok with veg and your chosen sauces... More

We visited La Place for some food on our first night in Amsterdam, we shared a pizza and some potatoes which were lovely. All at a great price if you need a bite to eat then well worth finding.

Popped in here for a light dinner and enjoyed mixed salad and chicken. I would have had the pork but almost €8 for a small bit of meat which has been sitting under a heating lamp for hours seemed a bit excessive. My friend had a bit of quiche which was pleasant enough, however we both can't but feel that... More

We stopped into La Place for lunch one day while walking around. What looked like a quick sandwich and pizza place from the street turned out to be a large multi-station gourmet market-style spot once we got inside. There are stations making everything from the aforementioned sandwiches and pizza, to fresh pasta, burgers, salads, fruit, smoothies, desserts and more. You... More

Every time I visit Amsterdam I come to La Place. There's a great selection of vegetables, what's for me, as a vegan, very great. Meat, pasta, cake or anything you like eaters, you're also going to find what you're looking for.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
