It is great to see the building, great architecture. I love modern developed buildings. It is on a good spot too. Although it was raining when I visited it. But in summer it is a great spot near The Y. Insides also great. We watch a short movie. Everthing is easy, buy your tickets, having a ciffee, finding the theater.

Eaten there many times, in general it is good and so is the service. The only thing they haven´t mastered are good fries. They are fat and soggy. Even when I returned the first batch, the second one was equally soggy. If you pinched them the fat was dripping out. They waitress apologized to us. She heard this complaint many... More

The film institute was situated in a white-colored but modern structure just opposite to Centraal Station. Visitors could take a free ferry ride from the station and then for a short walk to the EYE building. Worth to visit this place particularly if you want to view the film or being invited to join the function held inside.

The 4 minute free boat ride from Amsterdam Centraal, and another 4 minute walk to the entrance. Do check out the Butcher hotel and outdoor cafe too. Go for a walk along the harbour boats too. Sure, the museum and exhibitions were outstanding but the real winners here is you, because this space is way too cool to be in!... More

Apart from the usual unimpressive, unhelpful when not down right unfriendly service from the people who work here. It really is a great place to come. From the exhibition spaces to the cinema's to the cafe. I've done all three and as I say I paint on an extra thick skin to ignore the service and enjoy the stunning architecture,... More

We have been here many times for a lunchtime bight or a coffee but this was the first time for an evening meal. We were very pleasantly surprised! We both started with a vol au vent stuffed with mushrooms served with frisée lettuce. It was lovely. My wife chose the duck breast with artichoke on a bed of bulgar rice.... More
