Description: Restaurant De Belhamel is located at the junction of two of Amsterdam’s most beautiful canals, the Brouwersgracht (“Brewers’ canal”) and the Herengracht (“Gentlemen’s canal”). It is one of the city’s prettiest spots, quietly situated at the edge of the Jordaan area and offering splendid views on both canals.In summer lunch and dinner are served outside in these lovely surroundings.Not only the location, also the restaurant’s interior is unique: the venue is entirely decorated in the early 20th century Art-Nouveau style, with many original details. The restaurant and entresol give a view over the canals, the bar offers a fine opportunity to enjoy an aperitif before dinner.From 2007 onwards Michelin has rewarded De Belhamel with a ‘Bib Gourmand’.We are looking forward to welcoming you at De Belhamel.

“Quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This place was very close to our hotel, and fortunately served us shortly before they were scheduled to close (after lunch). The different types of carpaccio were excellent. The decor was both Art Nouveau and modern.

“Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

An Amsterdam hidden gem, one that I've been visiting since first found it over 10 years ago. Relaxed and beautiful setting, attentive staff with a great (it's limited) and well resourced menu. Highly recommend it.

“Good, not great, food but cool, stylish ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had a business dinner in December. The menu, personally, was a little limited, as was the wine list, but in terms of Amsterdam, definitely one of the better restaurants. The views of the canal (make sure you ask for a table near the window), are excellent. The service was also very knowledgeable and friendly.

“Yes, just yes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend took me to this excellent resteraunt this evening. We had a exquisite meal, washed down with prosecco. The service was fantastic. The cheese was excellent. It was such a romantic, personal and beautiful setting. I loved ever second. Nothing short of perfection, a fabulous last night in Amsterdam.
