On our first evening in Amsterdam, we were exhausted and looking for a quality meal and one that wouldn't take too much time. Even though Restaurant Open was fully booked, they accommodated us and our meal came within a very short time. It was wonderful...More

If you like it to have a surprise of delicious tastes in good combinations: GO! I think the marker is seafood, that's what I did. But some of my party had the beef and were really happy.

Open is named for the fact that it is a restaurant built on an open swing bridge. We had some drinks on the patio on a nice sunny day and then moved inside for a nice dinner. I had a nice blutwurst followed by dorade....More

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
