My partner dragged into this place which looked so un-assuming from outside - what a discovery!!!!! If you like eating great food on a budget, this place should be on your list. We also learned they have another location in the north of the city with a great panoramic view, besides the location at the airport where we ate on... More

Loved the salad by the plate--visited two times! Casual--Serve yourself, best for lunch. So many fresh options like cucumber and tomatoes, French-dressed new potatoes, grilled eggplant and red peppers, cous cous, etc. Stir-fry was tasty but took a long time. Lots of food options: sandwiches, meats, smoothies, desserts, etc. Contemporary space with lots of seating upstairs. Huge salad cost about... More

We were walking around the city and picked La Place for a quick meal. We had a pasta dish that was prepared to order and it was good at a reasonable price. The restaurant has a wide variety of food at reasonable prices. No table service. You walk around and pick whatever looks good. Bright, clean and appealing.

Had breakfast on the roof terrace a couple of mornings during our stay. A few minutes walk from our hotel and just 5 minutes from the Central station, It doesn't open until 10 am, but, we were on a break! so, no issue there. On the 7th floor of a fabulous library. Could have stayed there for longer. The menu... More

What are you hungry for? This is the place that you can find a huge variety to satisfy every craving: fruit smoothies, pizza, sandwiches, sweety pastry, grilled meats, vegetables, salads, soup, bread, all super fresh and delicious. Better than that, you have fresh and healthy food on a budget! The store located at the 7th floor of the OBA (... More

I eated here during ISE 2016 in Amsterdam RAI. The food is good and you will find many options, but the place was very crowded so prepare yourself for long queue lines. It took me almost 10 minutes to navigate the line to the cash machines. It is very difficult to find a free table here during a popular event... More

The food tastes pretty nice. The pricing is OK, neither cheap or expensive. The customer service is appalling, as I saw a customer being cursed at by a staff member.

Super for breakfast, great selection of food but can be very busy and canteen like. Very poor service and food can get cold. Coffee usually pretty cold too.

Great place to go as a group because of the variety of fresh and tasty foods. The pizza here was very tasty as well as the juices. Honest, simple food for good prices. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area and just need a tasty bite.

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.
