After getting back to my hotel after my outing to Den Haag, I was looking for somewhere close for dinner. I cast the net a little wider than usual and noticed a small cafe no more than 100 metres (as the crow flies) from my hotel, but maybe a 400 or 500 metres walk as I needed to get across The Amstel and a canal.
A great location on a canal looking across to Amstelhoeck and the Flea Market. A corner building that has outdoor seating as well as a nice indoor tiled dining room.
The outside tables were all occupied on this splendid spring evening so I sat inside by the window.
One of the options for dinner is 3 courses (2 tapas + main course + dessert) for €29.50 which is a very good option.
The tapas starters I chose were meatballs with fennel and a spicy dip of tomato and cinnamon, and honey bbq ribs and they were both great.
For my main course I had the casssoulet carcasonne, duck leg with white kidney beans and tomato which was excellent.
Dessert was a scrumptious tiramisu.
Decent wines as well – I had a glass of the recommended sangiovese which complimented the meal.
If I’d managed to get a seat outside I probably would have stayed longer to drink a couple more glasses of wine.
