Having walked miles looking for an authentic Dutch restaurant we finally found Oud Holland and a bit later wished we had not. Even allowing for how busy they were the service was perfunctory and the food was unsatisfactory. Perhaps we chose poorly but items described as stew or casserole bore little resemblance to what we hoped to get. Have to... More

After walking around for hours looking for a place to have our first meal in Holland, we stumbled, literally, up this place and it seemed to just call us inside. Wow, what a great find. It was late and we were one a few customers inside. Everything on the menu was reasonably priced and provided a great selection. I honestly... More

This traditional restaurant is located at 105 Nieuwezijdsvoorburgwal (close to everything). We were looking for authentic Dutch food, we found it here. I had the pan fried trout. Imagine my surprise when it arrived with the tail, head with eyes intact. Thankfully, my son, the chef was with me. He split the fish open and removed the spine. Snails were... More

You can Find an excellent Poffertjes in it. If you do not know what Poffertjes is, go to the oud Holland and taste it. For sure you'll have an excellent sample of it.

This restaurant is a great place to have traditional Dutch cooking. We ate here twice and had fantastic meals both times. The price wasn't too expensive and the service was quick. The restaurant is very handy to our hotel and we wished we had discovered it earlier during our stay! We would have eaten here all evenings. The food is... More

The girl who served us has been very friendly and helpful, assisting us to select a shared meal for children. Mussels were simple and tasty - just what we wanted. Place is very atmospheric, don't miss the second floor!

I'm lost for words, this place tricked me into thinking it was some good traditional Dutch home cooking. Turns out their cooking tasted like they needed a microwave a deep fat fryer and some tinned food. I can't believe that after eating this trash I saw the same meal at another restaraunt for a quarter of the price. The waiter... More

Oud Holland restaurant is situated close to the Nieuwe Kerke and the Magna Plaza shopping Mall. It serves mainly traditional Dutch dishes, but their comprehensive menu also includes many international classics. We went there for lunch, as our last meal in Amsterdam. It was a treat, the staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful, we were given a window seat... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
