Description: Open since 1972, Bistro Bonjour French restaurant has an outdoor terrace overlooking the lovely Keizersgracht canal. Set around halfway between Waterlooplein and the Rijksmuseum, the restaurant's central location makes it a popular spot with tourists visiting the local area. Magere Brug - a typically Dutch wooden bridge - is also just around the corner. The menu is a celebration of traditional French cuisine and changes seasonally. Appetisers include steamed mussels, fried frog's legs and French onion soup. Mains are based on fish and meat, though there are vegetarian options, including a dish of the day. The desserts are also just as mouthwatering: chocolate mousse, crêpe flambée and crème brulée are just some of the options. To wash it all down, there is a good selection of French wines. In the evenings Bistro Bonjour is lit by candlelight - a very romantic way to enjoy a meal out in Amsterdam.

A close walk from the Inter Continental and Banks Mansion so no Uber required. Friendly staff with a French menu (of course) but we were less impressed with the food. Nothing bad but nothing,great.

The food was excellent, staff was friendly. Atmosphere was peaceful but not too quiet. I definitely recommend.

This little restaurant was busy and lively with good service. The food wasn't top notch but was filling and reasonable and it made a perfectly cosy end to a wet grey day. If you are looking for decent food, a good atmosphere and service at a reasonable price this place ticks the boxes.

We came here based on the extremely positive reviews and given they had a promotion on. It was an ok experience but nothing like what you read here on the site. The food was ok but to claim this is French cuisine is totally misleading. The service was friendly but incredibly slow on a Saturday night. The kitchen is tiny and could not keep up. The ambience is quite dark and feels more like Argentinian/Spanish than French. It's an ok place to have dinner and of course there are much worse places in Amsterdam (but also many much better ones).

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we returned again several days later. The first time the weather was perfect so we were able to be outside along the canal. The second time was inside. I would describe the menu as eclectic country French. Pleasant staff and nice menu choices and well located but just a couple of blocks from the crowds of Rembrandt Square. No wonder they have been in business for a long time.
