This place, a few blocks from Anne Frank's House, right on the canal, was a wonderful discovery. Fantastic french onion soup, great tomahawk steak, and looking at table next to us - we were ready to order the Turf and Surf on top of that,...More

You will enjoy this restaurant very much. We ordered the Venus and Adonis filet mignon steaks and they were done.... Very good portions and the staff was very attentive and nice.

Right across from the canal with both outdoor and indoor seating. I also loved the indoor window box seats with large windows that open (the best of both worlds).

Simply GO! We spent the weekend in Amsterdam this weekend and were recommended this place by a local and could not be happier it. In fact it was so good we returned on our second night. We hadn't made a reservation (not recommended on a...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.
