Description: Restaurant De Belhamel is located at the junction of two of Amsterdam’s most beautiful canals, the Brouwersgracht (“Brewers’ canal”) and the Herengracht (“Gentlemen’s canal”). It is one of the city’s prettiest spots, quietly situated at the edge of the Jordaan area and offering splendid views on both canals.In summer lunch and dinner are served outside in these lovely surroundings.Not only the location, also the restaurant’s interior is unique: the venue is entirely decorated in the early 20th century Art-Nouveau style, with many original details. The restaurant and entresol give a view over the canals, the bar offers a fine opportunity to enjoy an aperitif before dinner.From 2007 onwards Michelin has rewarded De Belhamel with a ‘Bib Gourmand’.We are looking forward to welcoming you at De Belhamel.

“Excellent romantic restaurant”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

My wife and I had a very romantic evening at de Belhamel, the service was superb especially in their recommendations from the menu and from the wine list. The food and wine were perfectly presented and of excellent quality. The restaurant also has an excellent view over the canal.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

De Belhamel is a very good restaurant in a fantastic location by a canal in the old part of Amsterdam. The food was well prepared and we had a great evening meal here. We did think that for the price, the food was "ordinary" as I felt my wife could quite easily have produced meals to this standard. Having said that we were very pleased with both dishes and found the staff friendly and helpful. The restaurant has plenty of atmosphere and is certainly worth a visit.

“De Belhamel never disappoints!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Everytime my husband and I visit Amsterdam, we always eat at De Belhamel. We were there twice on our most recent visit this month and the food, the experience and the De Belhamel team are still all excellent.

“great food, not great service”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The food we ate here was wonderful...had the shrimp/crab puff pastry appetizer and the wild sea bass. We ate from the "group" menu for 9 people...even though we had reservations at 6pm, our waiter told us that we could NOT have the dessert portion of our prix fixe due to time constraints and made us feel like we had to rush through our dinner....at the end of the meal, he then said we could stay a little while longer to eat dessert. Needless to say, we left asap and had our dessert somewhere else where we were welcomed.

“Delightful in every way”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

In a picturesque canal-side setting De Belhamel has a great atmosphere outside and in. With gentle efficient and friendly service and a great selection of perfectly prepared food, this is one to go for. Try the 'petit grand dessert' for a wonderful taster to compete your meal.
