Absolutely loved everything about this place. The service was fantastic! (We sat at a table with table service and not on the terrace which is counter service only.) The food was amazing and the portions huge. You can easily split one roti wrap between two...More

This bar is a really cool spot to visit, either for a drink or to have a meal! It's got a really chill, funky vibe, and the location right along the water is pretty sweet. On a warm or sunny day, it's a great place...More

This place is great, Waterkant sits right along the canal and offers good food, a great beer selection, and sights of the canal. Super impressed that the menu also details what is vegetarian, lactose free, and gluten free.

This place has become my summer amsterdam first stop. Great vibe, next to the canal. Perfect on a sunny day. Quality beer too. Try the mango sour ale!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
