Elegance, tradition and hospitality are the core traits of one of Amsterdam’s finest restaurants, de Silveren Spiegel (the Silver Mirror). The restaurant dates from the Dutch Golden Age, the 17th century, so you can experience the ambiance of this time period. Breathtaking surroundings and a lovely diner. Private rooms for special occasions, parties or business meetings available. AT THIS MOMENT THE RESTAURANT IS CLOSED FOR EXTENDED RENOVATIONS. WE ARE HAPPY TO WELCOME YOU AGAIN IN THE SPRING OF 2017.

There were pluses to our Christmas Day evening meal here but also a big minus. The building itself is quite wonderful in its 17th century glory and quirkiness. As with many buildings in Amsterdam, it has suffered subsidence problems and the end result is like...More

It is a formal restaurant however smart casual is appropriate. Dress up if you want, many others do but do not rock up in sportswear. It doesn't suit the restaurant or the service, the waiters are smartly dressed in suits.
