Restaurant Amsterdam , Holland

There are more than a thousand restaurants to choose from in Amsterdam, and a complete list would, and does, fill a whole book, so we can only hope to give you some recommendations here. Not surprisingly, most restaurants are in the city centre, and just walking there you will pass many of high quality. There are particularly many restaurants around the Leidseplein , Dam and Rembrandtplein.

Good to know!

- It is advisable to reserve; there are a few restaurants that don't take reservations, or where you won't need to, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
- Enquire beforehand if you want to pay with a credit card.
- Unfortunately the habit of offering smoking and non-smoking areas to diners hasn't caught on here yet.
- The Dutch eat early. Some restaurants close earlier than you might expect (closing times are given here).
- The Dutch typically go out to eat as an activity in itself. Therefore there is no rush to eat and get going. Servers respect this and will often leave you to eat in peace. In particular it would be very rude for a server to bring you the bill without being asked first. You should always ask for your bill when you want it.
