2-Day Trip Suggestions

Alright, hope you can help here.

My fiance, me and a friend booked to go to Amsterdam for 2 days on a whim. We haven't really planned for much other than Anne Frank house at the moment.

We need some tips really on what to do/eat there. All three of our interest really lie with food and drink to be fair, although we do enjoy some cultural bits (hence the visit to Anne Frank) .

We have done a lot of research of restaurants but we haven't come to many conclusions as of yet.

I am hoping you can suggest some really unmissable restaurants, bars and museums/sightseeing.

We are obviously a bit new at this!

Any replies are much appreciated! :)

Some ideas on what to do above.

Everyone no doubt will agree on the fine dining at FEBO. Other than that an idea of the type of food and budget might help.

There are 1000s of places to eat and drink

One must-----a canal boat tour.

Cheap but good eating

Hi. Thanks for your tips!"

Yeah sorry about not specifying. We like mid-fine dining definitely, also very interested in good brunch places.

I personally love Asian food, but to be honest I love almost all food so it's hard to specify.

We'd also love to go to some great bars, however we don't like nightclubs or pubs.

Amsterdam has thousands of bars and restaurants, a lot of which are very good. Use google maps as a guide.

You'll love Amsterdam!

I'd recommend the Heineken Experience, you get a tour of the brewery then get left on your own to wander around where there are lots of fun things to do. Plus you get 2 free drinks so bonus!

Doing a canal cruise can be good and I think you can get a cruise and a breakfast with the Hard Rock for €20.

Vondelpark is super pretty so defo worth a visit if you like nature.

Best places to eat are around Leidseplein. Just have a wander about, there are restaurants where it's 5 euros for pizza or pasta and have a few cheap set menus.

Fitting your "mid-fine dining" description:

- http://www.belhamel.nl/ Great canal views

- http://www.bistrotneuf.nl/ French

- https://www.linvite.nl/?lang=en I like this place tucked away on a side canal

Bars:

- For a view of the city try the cocktail bar atop the Doubletree near the Central Station although I myself have not been.

As a side note while enjoyed by many, locals and those of us who go often to Amsterdam would consider both the Heineken Experience and the Hard Rock Cafe a bit of of a tourist trap.

A bit?

HE, Ice Bar, Hard Rock Cafe, Starbucks, all hold a special place in our hearts.

Far to many authentic Dutch experiences to enjoy
