I live in Amsterdam and I suggest this place to people I know. Always good. Small and cosy, and hardly visible from the streets so make sure you know where to look.

We were waiting for an other restaurant but there were too many people, so a stranger suggest this place and we followed his advice. The place was very nice and characteristic. We got 2 different steaks, both very good and tasty. Completely sodisfied! Recommended ;)

We stopped her on a whim and Bim was tending bar. F*&$-ing super cool dude. Place was packed and had to wait at the bar. Got a table, at a fantastic meat and drank a great selection of beer and wine. Bum was thoughtful, witty and concerned throughout our entire stay. He became one of the "characters" in our trip.... More

My husband and I ate here our last night in Amsterdam. At the recommendation of the hotel where we stayed, we stopped in the night before and had drinks at the bar. The bartender was wonderful and we had a lovely time talking with her. In my search for mussels, we stopped back the next night. We didn't have a... More

It's hard to fault this place. Amsterdam has its share of overpriced tourist traps but this isn't one. You need to book to sit in the garden but it's worth it. Five or six choices for each course, all good. Not cheap but not overpriced. NB there are two van Beerens in Amsterdam. This one is the Eetcafe. It looks... More

We ate here twice - both times sitting outside in the courtyard. It wasn't the smartest place but the food was really excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient.

The bride and I came here last year with our sons and another couple and liked it enough to make a reservation for 7:30 pm six weeks ahead of our arrival. They put us in a table next to the prep station and entrance to the inside from the garden court. Strike one. We ordered the carpaccio and rack of... More

You won't not expect this hidden gem when passing this unassuming pub. We got a real surprise to find an intimate garden with about 30 seats. They were about 50% and the staff were attentive en on hand when needed. We had a nice meal from a small menu with about 10 choices for main or starters and some additional... More

It was Pride Saturday and we were looking for a place that was close to our B&B, had great food, wasn't too crowded, and where the people were nice. We found it! We were greeted by Pim; who was the barrister, bartender, cook, host, and waiter. He and his lovely wife own the place. As we were arriving, and during... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
