This was a pleasant and satisfying dinner in a beautiful (and relatively quiet) neighborhood on the Keizersgracht. We both chose stuffed artichokes as a first course and fillet of duck in an orange sauce for the main. Served with this menu were a salad, broccoli,...More

As mentioned above this french restaurant is rather dark (located in a basement) and the decoration was probably modern 40 years ago, but as a bistro it is fine with a decent selection of typical french food. One point of criticism is the smoked salmon...More

I had the most amazing meal in Bonjour. The onion soup is to die for. I could easily have had another 2 helpings if I didn't have to make room for the duck which was equally delicious! I will be coming here every time I...More

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.
