We ate hear during a weekend away - passed the restaurant and thought it looked nice, so returned the next evening. Quite busy, so we booked a table on line (very easy process, worked like a dream); friendly and helpful staff. Although it was busy,...More

The restaurant is not large, so make reservations in advance. The food is outstanding! They do much of the cooking with charcoal, which adds a great flavor. The tuna steak is to die for. Cooked medium rare and served with two sauce options, it melts...More

Absolutely delicious meal on our last day in Amsterdam. Dinner was perfect for both meat and seafood lovers in our group. Must order the tasty sides, such as fries, potato wedges, and roasted vegetables. The setting was lovely, across from the canal.

Arriving mid-afternoon for our first day on Amsterdam, we asked for some restaurant recommendations for dinner. One of the names on the list was Venus & Adonis, which was a 7-10 minute walk from the hotel. Boy, are we happy we received the suggestion. We...More

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.
