CP is a large loft like room where large parties of trendy people used to have fun. I was back recently and the population was more like families from the countryside spending an evening in the capital ... . The food was very average too....More

Great service, atmosphere and food. The place looked somewhat strange when we came into the hallway as you cannot see the restaurant at all; all you see is a gigantic aquarium. If you walk past the aquarium you will find a very good restaurant though,...More

We found the wait staff extremely RUDE! And for this reason, I think I'd skip this restaurant on my next visit to Amsterdam. The food was very tasty, however a few of the dishes were literally "swimming" in sauce or oil making it a bit...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

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.
