The decor is just... More

Cocktails are carefully and skilfully prepared by Ko. Setting is beautiful, snacks served with the cocktails were a lovely touch. Ko kindly showed us around... More

We went there for dinner while visiting Amsterdam. The few rooms we saw were beautifully decorated in historical style, awesome experience for tourists. The food was good. The staff was excellent, telling us about history of the place and anecdotes about some famous visitors.

We had dinner here on our first night in Amsterdam. We all ordered from the Pre Fix menu so that it would be easy to split the bill. Be sure to get the wine flight pairing

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
