Choose a table by the river bank and dine at the bistro. Or visit the terrace of the A Bar. Relax, sip a cocktail and enjoy the stunning scene on the Amstel
The most famous high end hotel of Amsterdam; a classis. Enjoy lunch or drinks and check out the 16th century architecture, ambiance and great view of the Amstel canal.
5 start landmark hotel. Spot a rockstar or have a drink at their pleasant riverfront terrace. Fine dining too although they are not happy recently loosing their michelin stars..
Madonna, Mick Jagger, Drake, U2, they all stay at the Amstel hotel when they are in town. They have a nice bar; A-bar and a great riverside room/orangerie to have afternoon-tea. Their restaurant 'La Rive' lost it's Michelin-star a few years ago, but they still serve great meals I guess. Very pricy…
“Great place along the Amstel river on the Eastern banks/Weesperzijde side. Possibly my favourite place for coffee (either take-out stroling along the Amstel river or inside with a lovely piece of apple pie). It has a great terrace along the Amstel (during the summer, in wintertime it closed and during Christmas time there is a huge Christmas tree filling up the terrace), but also inside there is plenty of seating. Enjoy your coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner here anytime!”
“Great coffee and delicious bagels! Also they have very good and fast service..”
“Great terrace on the water when it is sunny out! In winter time not worth a visit”
“Carré is closely connected to the family Carré. This family group gave their first performances by the end of the 18th century and in 1863 they came to the Netherlands for the first time. In 1866 Oscar Carré finally got permission to build his first stone theatre, and on 3 December 1887 this building was officially opened. It was immediately a big success. At first Carré was only used during the winter, the winter circus of Oscar Carré then performed but during the rest of the year this group travelled and the theatre was empty. However, in 1893 the theatre was rented during the summer, which meant that there were performances during the entire year. Carré turned form a circus into a variété theatre (Dutch version of a Music Hall). After the dead of Oscar Carré in 1911 the theatre had a bad period. No profits were made even though several directors tried new things. Max Gabriël rebuilt the theatre, but this didn't work so he left only a year later. Boekholt brought a new program and new sorts of amusements, but this didn't work either. A business company whom brought back the circus entertainment went bankrupt. Finally (in 1924) two gentlemen named Benjamin and Content were able to make a profit with Carré. After Benjamin and Content, Alex Wunnink became the director. He was successful and brought many new shows, as well as a big profit.”
