I was on the look out for a simple restaurant and in the mood for some steak. I came across La Colina. The waiter who served me was amusing, friendly and helpful. I was going to pick one steak from a choice of two. He guided me instead to a choice where I got to have smaller portions of 3... More

I had salmon and the wifey had chicken and she said it was some of the best she's ever had. Salmon had bones but was very good too. Staff were... More

My business colleague and myself were undecided as to where to eat and whilst Im not a big supporter of being encouraged to eat in a restaurant by overzealous staff, I'm glad they did as Im not sure we would have entered had they not. We both ended up having steaks and, to be honest, you'd struggle to get much... More

Just arrived in Amsterdam after a long train trip, and was really hungry. Felt like some pasta, and went exploring around an area I'd visited last year. Ended up wishing I'd looked elsewhere. Icy, drafty restaurant, overcooked pasta, with something that was supposed to be arrabiata sauce, but looked and tasted more like watery canned tomatos with some tabasco sauce... More

Nothing special about this place. Food was not bad but very basic. Service fairly poor with missed orders. One could do better.

This is on the main tourist drag and it shows. Decent menu failed to live up to expectation and the quality of both ingredients and cooking talent were barely average.

Eaten there with a group of people. Very unfriendly service that had problems with even taking notes of people's orders. Meat was not as ordered, pizza looked like having been taken out from the freezer from a box. Housewine was vinegar-like and the service had no idea about wine. Would never eat there again.

We visited the restaurant with a group of 6 people. The waiter was not able to get our order correctly and even we ordered a lot, he has never been friendly. The filet steak was not a beef filet, less quality.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
