Every now and then you get suprised by a place. This is such a place... The location is great, downtown, but pleasantly hidden on Spuistraat. The interiour is stylish but not too much and not too big. The staff is professional, but “normal”. The menu...More

Trendy restaurant not far from the Central Station. Lovely atmosphere and really good food. The menu is a combination of a lot of different cuisines, so there is sure to be something to satisfy everyone in your party.

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
