This centrally located restaurant, set in the heart of the old city, is quintessentially, traditionally Dutch. You should book in advance as it fills up nightly, especially on the weekend. The service here is attentive and the servers are passionate and informative about the food and the wine that is served in this establishment. Come for the romantic setting, enjoy... More

The amazing 5 course dinner we chose from the tasting menu was nothing compared to the charming ambiance in this historic property. We were greeted by the owners upon arrival and dined with attentitive but unimposing service. Will surely revommend this as a must visit for anyone going to Amsterdam. I hope nothing about this place changes.

We really enjoyed our dinner here - the menu was perfectly balanced, we took the wine menu, which was also good. The only small thing was that we travelled with a child, who needed small portions due to a disease,, and although we phoned in advance to order and make sure that this would be OK, it finally did not...

Location/environment: Located in one of Amsterdam's oldest (1614) buildings makes this place unique in it's own. We choose to sit outside, which is close to a crossing but as it's a very calm area with almost no traffic it was absolutely fine.

Seriously, the staff at De Silveren Spiegel needs to stop telling me how many points the wines were awarded, how the foods were locally sourced, and describing every single item on my plate. I am not awed by your 90 points by Wine Spectator and the service comes across as snobby. You sound like you're trying to convince me that... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
