The Dover sole, freshly caught from the North Sea was absolutely fabulous. The portion very generous, you can easily share. Dishes served to other patrons looked wonderful too. The service , congeniality, and ambiance were more than satisfactory. Prices are very fair. 11bern

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
