“Library with a view and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Nice view of Amsterdam and the cafeteria on the 7th floor had a nice selection. We had fish cooked to order, fresh salad; made to order pizza is also available along with entrees and side dishes. Reasonably priced.

“Great view and food on the top floor”
5 of 5 stars 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 stars 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 stars 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!
