This was my introduction to Indonesian food and I was blown away. We had the "rijstaffel" (rice table) at Sama Sebo and the different flavours were ALL great. Normally, I find that I like most dishes when I try something new, but others I could...More

Two of us wanted to share the famous Rijsttafel (rice table meal) but we weren't permitted. This information should be on the restaurants website. The food we ordered was good, but not great. Service was rushed and the manager (owner?) was a bit officious.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

Call; this place can be very busy as so close to Rijksmuseum. If you will be in Amsterdam a few days before your meal, you can stop in OR have your hotel call them. You don't want to be turned away on a busy evening and then... More
