Description: “Haesje Claes” is a restaurant situated in the historical center of Amsterdam, between the Spui and the Dam square, across from the Amsterdam Museum. The restaurant occupies six, epic buildings, in which the original architectural features such as little steps, corridors and hallways all have been preserved. Likewise, the exterior of the building is a beautiful example of traditional Dutch architecture. All chambers are breathing a century old ambiance, perfectly suited for a comfortable and casual lunch or dinner. The name Haesje Claes originates from the Lady Haesje Claes, who was born in 1520, and was a daughter of a rich salesman. She was also the founder of the “Burgerweeshuis” (orphanage) formerly located in the Amsterdam Museum. The interior is comprised of paintings depicting scenes from the orphanage and many paintings and tiles in the restaurant date back to this time period. Our kitchen is open daily from 12:00 till 22:00

My husband and I went to this restaurant tonight after our hotel recommended it to us. We were pleasantly surprised when we got there after a short walk from the renaissance hotel. Sophie was our waitress and she was superb! She recommended the best dishes from the menu and we loved them. The food is full of flavor and delicious! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants traditional Dutch cuisine!

On a 1st of January, the choice of open restaurants is quite limited. We tried our chance at the Haesje Claes, a mere 20 m from our hotel. The menu looked appealing and once we entered, I was smitten with the cosy traditional Dutch decor. Food was delicious, a 5 star for the dessert and the service was very good. Definitely would go back there on my next trip.
