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.

“A must visit”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Was recommended here - I was staying just over the canal in Chic and Basic. This place has a beautiful position overlooking the canal with an entrance just round the side. It is a small place with excellent, friendly service. The interior is elegant. We had a meal for 4 which was absolutely delicious. Great selection of wine and beers.

I had the lamb which was gorgeous, followed by cheeses and a port. My friend had the dessert selection which looked lovely.

Wouldn't hesitate to go back: am visiting Amsterdam later in the year - the only pity is it appear to be a venue to take a small child. Still, a great place to eat.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Visited this lovely place on 22nd Feb and were very happy to have done so. The situation is perfect, right at the end of the Canal, so has a fabulous outlook. The interior of the restaurant, and the menu, have a very French feel. I went for the Chefs menu, and it was all delicious. The service was impeccable too. Would definitely recommend a visit and would come back anytime.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our first dinner in Amsterdam during our 4 day stay there and we weren't disappointed! Beautiful position overlooking the canal. Service excellent - friendly but professional. Small bar available for a pre dinner drink. Food delicious. 75 euros for x2 glasses of wine, lobster bisque with cognac cream as a starter, x 2 Halibut, fennel and carrots stewed in white wine with baked potato. No room for desert unfortunately.
Great restaurant for either dinner or lunch.

Beautiful interior, classy food, superb service. A bit of a jewel of a restaurant with local ingredients interpreted in a French-influenced manner. Yum!
