Expert review of Café-Restaurant Amsterdam
It's worth coming just to gawp at the colossal hall that is the dining area, with its wrought-iron pillars, high ceiling, and original floodlights from the old Ajax stadium. The food plays second fiddle, but is still very decent.
Mostly classic French brasserie fare - snails, rillettes, steak and chips, coq au vin, crème brulée, profiteroles. Platters of fruits de mer are a speciality. Dishes are simply prepared, and reasonably priced.
Buzzy. There's so much to look at (and choose from on the long menus), it's very family friendly - I've eaten here happily with my kids.
Good, helpful, accommodating.
A ten-minute tram ride from the city centre - take tram 10 to the final stop: the restaurant is 200 yards from there. The Westergasfabriek nightlife/cultural complex is a short walk away.
Steer clear of seafood, and you can eat three courses for under 30 euros a head.
