“Great view and food on the top floor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

I really like the layout of this library and its very modern.
But do not think its just a place with books, go to the top floor and eat at La Place and enjoy the view! It is very worth it!

“A must to visit and have coffee and lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

A must to visit, the cafeteria at the top of the library gives you a great view over the city centre and with that you have an excellent choice for lunch. A very popular place. The building itself is also worth taking a tour, fantastic place.

“Do not miss the Amsterdam Library!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Food and views on the top floor make this a needed stop on your trip. The actual library is also over the top with books, cd/DVD and art work.

It is by far one of the nicest libraries. Happy to recommend!

“La Place has fantastic food.”

Do not miss this place if you are in the city. Thoroughly enjoyed the soups and salads. The view from the top floor of the library was fabulous.
