Whether you're looking for Michelin standard cuisine or a cosy local joint, you'll find plenty to please your palate in Amsterdam. Make sure you check out the thriving bar scene too - watch the world go by from a canal side terrace, or head to stylish cocktail bar if you're after something a little more shaken and stirred.
Amsterdam certainly holds its own on the restaurant front, offering a culinary melting pot reflective of the city itself. Restaurants offer everything a hungry visitor craves: from Indonesian to tapas, and from Mediterranean to modern Dutch. When it comes to bars, it’s impossible to walk for more than 50ft in the city without stumbling across a cosy café or specialty bar, and indeed watching the world go by from the comfort of a canal side terrace bar is one of the most pleasurable ways to while away an afternoon in Amsterdam.
