This classic Dutch restaurant spans six historic Amsterdam houses, many of which still retain their original architectural features including medieval paintings, stained glass windows and tile tableaux. Order traditional dishes like pea soup with sausages and salted herring, not to mention three different kinds of stamppot (potato and vegetable mash) from which to choose. Plenty of seafood is also on offer from salmon in Hollandaise sauce to oysters on the half shell and steamed mussels. The service is a bit stiff and formal, but the selection of beer from local city breweries De Prael and ‘t IJ is as good as it gets. Naturally, a good wine list is also available.
