This lovely place was located 2 blocks from our Airbnb, and was the perfect place for our first breakfast in Amsterdam. The restaurant is bright with large windows looking out onto the corner of Rozengracht and Prinsengracht, making it a prime "people-watching" location for us...More

Husband had fish and chips. In a city renowned for its fish we expected freshly battered and cooked fish similar to the many markets. However it was a mass produced supermarket fish and disappointing. I had chicken satay which was ok but overpriced at €15.50....More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
