  1. I’m going to Amsterdam in 2 weeks (1st week of Feb), any chic romantic restaurants you can recommend?

  2. Hi Apinya,

    Blauw aan de Wal (http://www.blauwaandewal.com/) comes to mind immediately when thinking about chic and romantic. It’s in the middle of the red light district, but in an old house behind a quiet courtyard. It’s very stylish, but also cozy with several smaller dining areas. And the food is great!


  3. Hi,
    Im taking my boyfriend to amsterdam for his birthday. We are from London, but visit Dam very frequently (few times a year). We struggle to find a really good, maybe a bit trendy restaurant. He likes meat, so anywhere vegaterian or fishy wouldnt be any good to us…
    Do you have any recomendations for us to eat at for his birthday dinner (evening)? Price isnt that important. However maybe somewhere near bar Door 74 would be helpful.

    Many thanks!

  4. Thank you.
    I did have a look at that one earlier and although it looks nice it didnt really entice me… Maybe not special enough, also the menue was quite small (not enough meat on it for my other half!). If you have any more recomendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again.

  5. Hello Raychel, maybe Cafe Loetje is an option. They are known for their steak. I have never been and the service is not always positively described in reviews, but apparantly it is considered very Amsterdam and they seem to have the best steak. Also a newly opened winebar with different kinds of sausages, called Worst (I think it is described on this site) could be an option. It is a little pricely but has a special atmosphere and nice small meat dishes. Have a great time!!!

  6. Thanks for the support, frustratedfoodie!

    We’re actually quite optimistic these days, as quality of food keeps improving – there are numerous good pizza places, burgers, more and more Michelin stars, a good range of food events, …

    So don’t get too grumpy 😉


  7. We happened by Le Zinc – et les Autres on a walk and returned for an excellent dinner. Excellent in all respects. Very nice wine list. Cordial, correct service. Enough buzz but quiet enough for conversation. And wonderful antique surroundings. I recommend it highly. What do you think?

  8. Hi Barbara,

    We went only once a while back and weren’t terribly impressed. It’s indeed a beautiful place at a great location, but we didn’t find the food special.

    Maybe we need to try again!
