The minute we walked in, We was greeted nicely and told it would be a 40 min wait, it was only 20... Had a drink at the bar while I waited, and the drinks were quick. Once I got to table, I was greeted by my server, who was very sweet and helpful. Ordered, and food came quickly and wow... More

Visited here after been in the a'dam lookout. Bit on the expensive side but we left in a food coma after starters and mains. Would return if back in amsterdam again!

Authentic decorative restaurant overlooking water was very comfortable and relaxed despite looking quite grand. Staff are attentive and very welcoming. Set menu was good value and everything tasted delicious especially the crispy pork and tender ginger beef. Make sure you use the upstairs bathroom and rub laughing Buddhas belly for good luck before you leave!

One of the best Chinese meals ever with lovely views over the water. Reserve beforehand for dinner as there is often a wait time. Portions are massive so you can drop a dish or two if out in a group - gets you your money back on what would otherwise be a pricey dining experience. Carlo was an extremely friendly... More

We booked a table here for dinner attracted by the location and appearance and the fact that the restaurant is wheelchair accessible with a disabled toilet, the food was ok but a shame that the service was a little rushed and prices are on the high side for what you get. We chose the set menu at €37.50 each (The... More

The meal here was pleasant but very over priced. We had not booked so waited over an hour for a table to become available, we sat at the bar to wait where there is full selection of over priced drinks. Finally a table became available and we were led to the table where we waited another 25 minutes to place... More

The food in this place was very nice but a little pricy for what you get. If having wine and ordering away from set menu you are looking at around 200 euros for a couple.

We were served by a wonderful a friendly... More

We were a bit unsure about this restaurant due to the mixed reviews on here. However, as it was straight across the way from our hotel on a very snowy night we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is a 3 storey floating structure built in an oriental style. It has been beautifully fitted out and is very... More

We booked a table for a Saturday night as on a canal cruise we thought this place looked amazing. Inside the restaurant is lovely. We were seated at our table and asked if we would like a drink, once we received our drinks we had to wait 30 minutes before being asked for our food order. We ordered a starter... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
