Found this restaurant by accident in the late evening. The owner seated us as the kitchen was about to close. We enjoyed delicious local favorites including White Asparagus Soup and the house Pinot Noir. We also enjoyed recommended starter dishes of smoked salmon and veal. The owner was engaging; he and his staff were very helpful. We will go back... More

My wife and I are real foodies and this place is the best meal we've had out for ages. Not just the pitch-perfect food, but the wonderful service, buzzy atmosphere, awesome dimly lit Caravaggio-esque space, and delicious wine. We can't fault it (and we can be really picky). We started with a delicious and truffly beef carpaccio and fragrant and... More

While strolling in the area and after reading some promising reviews on TripAdvisor, we visited this pub/ restaurant. We sat outside in the nice environment of the small yard. We ordered our dinner and waited, and waited for more than an hour. After our complaints, we were told that something went wrong with our order in the kitchen. Finally the... More

Make a reservation. This is a local Amsterdam special restaurant. Off the track in the red light district. Spare ribs out of this world.

After searching Nieuwmarkt for a restaurant on a recent Saturday night, we serendipitously came upon Van Beeren. Though the menu is meat centric, we had an excellent spinach soup to boot. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the beer selection on tap is excellent. Do make a reservation, though we were able to walk in. Seating at the... 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.
