Have you looked at Humphries (2 Amsterdam locations)?

You could give it a typical Amsterdam touch and go for "Moeders".

I could give you 30 more suggestions; better check our Amsterdam restaurant tips.

I liked humphries good value as well. I was a bit dissappointed with my visit to Boom Chicago but I suspect I am more used to Dry Brit humour to American comedy.

Thanks for your replies.

Boom Chicago is a good recommendation - have been there once but I think we will arrive too late for the start of the show :(

I'll look into the other suggestions ...

There is a place right around the corner from the Leidseplein (across from the park with the bronze lizards) that has wonderful mussels and frites----big bowls of fresh shellfish and crisp fries with mayo. MMMMMMMM good! Cant remember the name tho.....such is A'Dam.

Re: Restaurant in Amsterdam

Even tho it doesnt sound right, I think you are correct!

Re: Restaurant in Amsterdam

by dustmon

Just saw a picture of Pancake Corner and that is definitely not it---I dont think the Mussels place is open for breakfast...

Re: Restaurant in Amsterdam

by pieter_jan_v

Well, it reads "Pannenkoeken Mosselhuis" over the entrance (Pancakes Musselshouse).

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

The windmill of Penningsveer

by lvdpiet

The surroundings hide many beautiful places. Take this: A recreation site near Amsterdam, the community of Haarlemmerliede. The newly rebuild windmill after a serious fire that took plave 5 years ago.

Like all great cities, there...

by coast2coast

Like all great cities, there are many reasons to visit Amsterdam. It is a city with great soul and spririt. Admittedly, there is a decadent side too. But I highly recommend Amsterdam. The following are some suggestions. 1. Orientate yourself ! At first Amsterdam can be confusing ! The city centre is basically a series of canals in concentric circles, once you have your basic bearings , then you can explore and enjoy . 2. See Dam square- this is a meeting place for tourists, youngsters, street performers ( and pidgeons ! )- very colorful . 3. Near-by is the Nieue Kerk- ( New Church )4. You MUST see the Anne Frank Museum . You've probably all heard of the exploits of this brave young woman who hid from the Nazi's in a secret annex during the occupation of WW 2. - interesting and moving- I was thrilled and humbled to visit. 5. More museums- Musuem het Rembrandthuis- yes Rembrandt Museum - only a small collection but interesting. 6. Van Gogh museum - Van Gogh best collection plus works of other great painters. 7. Red Light district- whilst not inviting you to sample it's wares- a quick look around is interesting ( keep an eye on your stuff )-if you are easily offended, however, give this area a miss. 8. See a brown cafe- they look like dives, but most are colorful places to visit. 9. Check out some of the beautiful bridges all around this city . 10. Nightlife- this is a great place for nightlife- absolutely buzzing. 11. Have a traditional Dutch meal, the pancakes are fantastic- so many fillings available. Treat yourself ! 12. Take a boat ride on the canals ( did you know Amsterdam has more canals than Venice, Italy ? ) I have several. I loved the overall atmosphere- cosmopolitan, refined, racy in places, but always interesting. The Anne Frank house museum was interesting and very moving. Night life is supercharged. I loved the pubs and bars-relaxed atmosphere and some elaborate decors . Food was great too and service good.

by jgemini65

I have read this comment on other pages...and it is true...just walk! Amsterdam has so many nooks and cranny's to explore one would never be bored in this city! My daughter and I spent time in a dutch bike shop looking for bike bells! Who Knows! Can't anything be fun!! I added this page from my journal! The best of both worlds! Photography, writing, and travel! If only life was that easy!

De Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge)

by pieter_jan_v

The Skinny Bridge is Amsterdam's most well-known bridge.

The present wooden draw bridge dates from 1934, but already in 1691 the "Kerkstraatbrug" (Chruch St. bridge) was constructed at this location. Because of its skinnyness the bridge got its nickname. In 1871 the first bridge with 13 bows was replaced by one with 9. Fifty years later the second bridge was replaced by the present wooden one, after much debat whether the new bridge should be a stone one or not.

In 1969 the bridge was renovated.

Opening of the 2 bridge parts was done by hand upto 1994; thereafter open and closure of the bridge was automated.

Upto 2003 cars were allowed to cross. Nowadays it's only open to pedestrians and cyclists.
