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.

“Always great food ambiance”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Great location next to a canal, good service and wonderful food that is reasonably priced. We love the prawn, scallop pastry entree. The saltimbuca special was excellent, though the gnocchi was average. We eat here every time we visit Amsterdam.

“Excellent and fine restaurant”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Last minute reservation, and we could seat at the terrasse right next to the canal for dinner. Excellent spot.
Let's be honest, the food and wine are quite expensive, but absolutely tasty and fine. The service is nice (could be a bit faster at some point). I recommend it !

“Excellent dinner and location”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We stopped here by chance due to a sudden rainstorm as we were walking from the train station. Even though we had no reservation, they were able to accommodate us for an early meal. The food was excellent - sea bass and salmon, both with fresh asparagus, and a delicious dessert. The restaurant has a beautiful view over the canal. A fortunate find!

“excellent chocie for foodies”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

we chose this restaurant as it was one of the few open on a sunday pm. This was very fortunate for us. The décor is unusual and creates great ambience. The location is perfect with views over the canal. Service was impeccable. The food was outstanding. We are foodies and plan our vacation activities around dinning and wine. My husband had the set 4 course and I selected al a carte. All the food was fresh, well presented, creative and well prepared. If we return to Amsterdam we will return here.

“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.
