Quite romantic: quiet, candle light, even the music was nice and soft. The food wasn't bad. Portions were a bit small. But there was no one here.? On a Saturday night at 22:00.

Out for dinner, we had to wait around 15 min before they came to us. We ordered cocktails but got the wrong ones and then had to wait one hour to receive our courses. They forgot them. Simply terrible.

Cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant. Just off the hustle and bustle of Rembrandtplein this restaurant serves excellent food and beer in a great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit.

We were taken here by friends last week. We were very impressed by the place. Even the house wine is organic! I strongly recommend it. The owner, Maurice and the waitress, Amber,made us very welcome.

The highest rated places were fully booked so I ended up filtering places where you can book online. This was not a disappointment, on the contrary. Although being very close to the busy Rembrantplein they run a cosy and truthfull place with dutch specialites on...More

Szmulewicz is since 1990 a small, informal, cosy restaurant (with terrace) in the centre of Amsterdam, near Rembrandtplein. The name suggests a Polish kitchen, but the chefs have different nationalities, and are inspired by the international (Mediterranean) kitchen. Dutch dishes are also being served. We all speak English, and some of us speak French and German as well. Since the place is frequently visited by locals, please make a reservation!
