Great seafood menu and variation for all tastes (cold and hot food). If anything is not clear ask the staff or use goggle pictures to show what you like to eat.Recommendation: Asian style mussel (with coconut milk) and combination menu (cold and mixed grilled seafood)

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
