My wife and I are coming to Amsterdam tomorrow (2/6); looking for a place for dinner
We will be arriving around 8:00 pm and would like to eat in a good restaurant that is more for locals than tourists. Can you recommend other places to eat other meals? We will be leaving 2/9. Also please provide ideas for sites to see. This is my first time using Localyte.
Places to consider until the weer hours of yr departure date are the following>>>: The More club on the Rozengracht after the restaurant as suggested earlier. It should be well spent belief you me even if you are alone or with a companion. Complaining & Teasing is a Dutch trait... and meant well with a humorous tint so, don't be overly intimidated with an anger but accept it as a dutch way with welcoming your presence...its also a litmus to see if U R a sport to be further catered for with a joyous crowd or company. Enjoy yourself and let us know if you will, after you return to your country of your Dutch experience feeling Amsterdamned by our cultural hospitality... :)) ...remember these words, "Dank U Wel" and "Tot Ziens", it will be handy for you for sure.
The service is friendly, dishes are affordable (around 20 Euros). The Chef is also the owner, and that is noticeable in the way he cooks and serves.
By the way, Moeders is nice too!
I would go for a typical indonesian rice table. As indonesia was a former colony Indonesian food has almost as much heritage as 'typical' Dutch and is far tastier. For a good one try Restaurant Blauw or if you want something directly in the centre then try Kantijl en de Tiger .
If you're just here for a short stay then I would try one of the many canal boat trips. It's touristy, but you will get a good flavour of Amsterdam in a couple of hours. Otherwise just get lost in the many small streets and pop into a Dutch cafe when you need refreshments!
