When the evenings darken, it’s real gezellig to go out for dinner in the neighbourhood and enjoy a late night stroll along the lights in streets and watch city life go by. For all restaurants it's wise to reserve your spot in advance. The ones mentioned are very popular.
Café de Klepel
A personal favorite of daughter of the family, Michelle, because of the exquisite French cuisine accompanied by marvellous wines. The staff is very capable of telling you their knowledge of the wines they serve. Just a winner this restaurant. But reserve in advance!
Prinsenstraat 22, Amsterdam
The chef of this restaurants worked in Michelin-starred restaurants only. The Michelin-starred part of this restaurant is somewhere else. Though they started here on the Lindengracht, now you'll find the Atelier department of restaurant Daalder. Especially on Saturdays a must go, because you can first enjoy the market then perhaps a drink at one of the brown cafe's at Noordermarkt and then enjoy and relax an evening in this quality restaurant.
Lindengracht 90, Amsterdam
Restaurant Breda is the restaurant of three friends, two chefs and a sommelier. Perfect combination if you ask us. The interior and the food is just great: a really beautiful interior combined with really good food. Take a wine. It will cost you, but in our opinion it’s really worth it! Lunch may be a bit more quiet than dinner. Though reservations are in order.
Singel 210, Amsterdam
Kaagman & Kortekaas
A Michelin star worthy restaurant in a very authentic atmosphere. The food is absolutely delicious and the ambiance is one you should like (not very fancy, more subtle and back to basic) but it's by far one of the best more haute cuisine experiences we had in a long time.
Sint Nicolaasstraat 43, Amsterdam
Not in the neighbourhood, we must say immediately. Though you will not regret to go a little extra mile for this restaurant. We recommend it because the ambiance is relaxed, beautifully decorated, the service is really friendly and helpful and the food is just de-lic-ious! (Photos above are from Jacobsz).
