Restaurants in Amsterdam

Restaurants cover all price categories and cuisines ranging from Dutch and European to Indonesian and fusion. Popular dining is found in the Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein areas. Indonesian restaurants have an important place on the city's scene, and Bojo is a fine budget performer. Many Amsterdam kitchens close at 10pm, so either dine early or choose a place that stays open late. Service and value-added tax are generally included but check the bill.
