OK restaurant, across the Artis Zoo in central Amsterdam. As part of discount deal, we had a prearranged steak meal which was ok but nothing special. Many complaints were part of this discount deal so perhaps we had a distorted look on the whole experience.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
