Visited this restaurant on Monday 16 January 2017. It is beautifully decorated and the service was excellent, I was blown away by the food. It was brilliant. I attended here with four friends and we all shared the same opinion that this is a great place, and one I will certainly visit upon returning to Amsterdam. I would just like... More

Visited Cafe George couple of times now in Amsterdam and it's a really nice hide out for a good and lovely dinner. The place looks tiny from the outside, but once inside you will find a nice long restaurant with dining tables on either side. Be prepared to sit quite close to the tables next to you, but this is...

After a morning of touring with a wonderful guide, we were hungry and ready to sit down. Cafe George on a Sunday at 2 PM was busy but still provided good service. My husband and I shared a very reasonable bottle of Sancerre with salads and it was perfect - no complaints about the food or the service. I would... More

Nice decoration, varied menu, fast service and pretty decent food in this cosy restaurant overlooking one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. They serve different types of food over the clock, which makes Cafe George a good option for different appetites at any time.

Usually you would go here for dinner knowing the food is okay which is excusable because a table is available on short notice and one puts up with this even though the service is less then excrement. However tonight was particularly dire. The food took ridiculously long to arrive and we were seated in the bar area even though we... More

This is most a bar I think but the food is delicious. I was days without red meet and freezyng. The Georges Steak and a glass of wine were my salvation.

Amazing place and great staff. Simple food but with an excellent flavour! We ordered 3 plates for lunch. Caesar salad, chicken avocado sandwich and Benedict eggs. We see other dishes and want to order them too. Nice carbonara pasta.

Overall the food was pretty good. The tuna tartar was tasty and the mussels were ok. I was a bit surprised my mussels didn't come with any bread to dip in the broth. The service wasn't good since we were in the front section and one waitress was covering to many tables. I would recommend getting a reservation. Overall decent... More

I had dinner at Cafè George with a big group of colleagues and their service was exquisit from the booking to the good bye. Great night out, with good food and amazing atmosphere. If you can't make up your mind, take the blackened fish, trust me.

My husband and I stumbled upon this delightful restaurant by accident on a recent city break to Amsterdam and we were so glad we did. The atmosphere was buzzing, really lively and vibrant, the service was so friendly and very attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. I really recommend you look this restaurant up when you visit the city,... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
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 streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and 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. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
