Description: Wine and dine among the local Amsterdam people, artists and actors. The ambiance in the dazzling Cafe Americain is dynamic and most of all cozy. It has been called Amsterdam's living room by many and that is exactly how it feels. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, just a coffee or a pleasant drink. At the Cafe Americain or on the amazing terrace during the summer time, you will always feel comfortable

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch there, great salads and croque Monsieur. The atmosphere is very regal with high rulings and lots of tables and light. Nice location.

“Great location but, food is poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

I had lunch in Hotel American on in Amsterdam but, was not impressed. It is a very nice and authentic restaurant, the atmosphere is good but, the food is not special. We had club sandwich with smoked, prefabricated chicken which was tastless and a tuna salad which looked beautiful and promising but, the tastes were not good. Too bad as the location is very nice and the service was great. If they do something about the kitchen this can be a great place. I do not recommend this one for the food but, for the atmosphere and location.

“An institution on the Leidse Plein...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I was glad to be wearing a hat, it went so well with the grand atmosphere of Cafe Americain. Grand entrance, grand hall, grand menu...
When I visited it was a little windy inside but this phenomenon was explained away with talk of a renovation that was in progress, as a Dutchman you leave on your muffler and continue as if nothing is the matter. This cafe could have received a rating of "very good" but the staff took some of the experience away by being surly, non attentive and sloppy...something I have seen in other F&B "institutions". Alas, the food was excellent and the beer ice cold.

“A can't miss to feel wealthy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great combination of literary intellect and a feel of wealth. The response of guests is always positive - the grandeur and the awareness of intellect hovering through the place makes it worth your while to spend some time here. Traditionally this is where writers used to hang out to be seen amongst fellows and they still do. Don't know about dining here, but definitely worth while to have coffee and pie.
