If I rate my experience just on the quality of the food, I would give it a higher rating (maybe a 4). The decor was interesting, and find it enjoyable. Unfortunately, the service was sub-par. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come to the front to acknowledge that their were customers waiting to be seated. The restaurant was... More

We, my son, daughter and I, had dinner here last night. We were "served" by a totally uninterested waiter and I think that only because we were hungry, the food tasted reasonable.

As we were walking and shopping in Amsterdam with the family, we wanted to have lunch somewhere. This time we skipped the fastfood and the well-known Chinese restaurants around the Dam square or Chinatown and chose to visit this restaurant for a change, as we haven't been here for ages and were wondering how it is nowadays. From the outside... More

Despite some of the reviews on here saying the staff were unfriendly, our experience was quite different. They were attentive and helpful. The service was quick and the food was delicious. The palace is beautiful. Totally worth eating here. Thank goodness we did the canal tour otherwise we might have missed it!

We have been visiting Amsterdam a couple of times in the last 9 months and we always wanted to try this restaurant. So this time we just went for it. We went it and we were all impressed by the décor, it is beautiful indeed. We have been seated upstairs and the view on the river is quite impressive. When... 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.
