We enjoyed traditional Dutch food at this restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice, service was friendly and food was tasty. What more could you ask for?

Although it's not at all far from Amsterdam's main tourist drag, this restaurant is a million miles from 'touristy'. It has a classy interior with high ceilings, light décor and darkwood furniture. The menu offers a wide choice of dishes, mainly French or Dutch, and...More

Asked for recommendation at the hotel and they suggestion this place. Turned out to be a very good idea. Had the Kloostervarken, which is a roast pork. It was excellent. Service was excellent as well.

Food is quality European fare wonderfully prepared. Servings are more than generous. The server was particularly knowledgeable about suggesting wines by the glass to go with entrees. Desserts knock it out of the park. Be prepared to spend over 100 Euros for two people.

Just a 2 minute walk from the Rennasance Hotel is a great restaurant. It is small but quaint. We made a reservation for 6:30 but many walk ins were taken. By the time we finished it was full of people. The service was very good....More

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

I'm curious what an average meal including service charge would be at this restaurant. We are staying on Dam Square and looking for a Wednesday and Thursday night restaurant with good local food and a somewhat romantic atmosphere for a couple in their 60s and yest quiet enough to talk .
