    I’ve got one night in Amsterdam a week on Sunday. I’m staying at the Hotel Pulitzer. Can anyone reccomend a good restaurant for dinner in Amsterdam?


    It’s not the swankiest of places, but if you are in town on business and just need a top notch, reasonably priced place to eat, not too far from the station then has excellent steaks and nice relaxed atmosphere. I always pop in there when I have meetings in AMS. is always my top choice when in a group of friends, though it’s quite trendy so not for everyone.

    Afternoon Tea at the Amstel is unmissable:


    Try BORDEWIJK ( I have eaten here several times and would strongly recommend it. The food is modern Dutch with a French twist. It is ‘the place’ to eat in Amsterdam.


    During the summer months the open air terrace – La Terasse – restaurant at Hotel de L’Europe is very nice. Fine food, wines, great service and great atmosphere directly on the Amstel River. A reservation is probably essential as seating is limited.

    Business Traveller published an article on restaurants in Amsterdam in the May 2009 issue – click here:


    Have you tried Jamie Oliver’s FIFTEEN? It’s really good and a great place to go if you’ve only got a night or two in AMS.


    A few great suggestions for you!

    La Rive in the Amstel is a Michelin Starred fab dining experience, sitting practically at water level on the Amstel, stunning views, excellent service, and perfect cuisine. Pricey, but a true event!

    Vis aan de Schelde, is probably the best Seafood Restuarant in Amsterdam (in Amsterdam Zuid). Superb seafood platters, great decor, you can’t go wrong.

    Roberto’s in the Hilton Amsterdam has just recently re-opened after a million euro renovation. The Hotel is situated in the most exclusive residential area of Amsterdam, where the old, real money is in Amsterdam. The Restuarnt is an excellent Italian, beautifully renovated, and a superb choice, fair prices, super service.

    Finally, the last time I stayed at the Pulitzer they had a rather fun restaurant with an amazingly amusing mural on the wall mimicing (all be it comically) the famous Night Watch paiting. The space was really nice, warm colors, modern design, and food eclectic. This was a while ago after the hotel had just been renovated so I can not be sure of it’s current staus as I have not been back to that hotel since (prefer the Amstel and Hilton).


    Thanks everyone for your replies – esp dutchyankee, whose suggestion I went with – I went to Vis aan de Schelde, it was fantastic, highly recommended!
