Restaurant De Belhamel
This restaurant is located in the Jordan area, which is filled to the brim with those famous Amsterdam canals and, if the weather permits it, you can enjoy your meal on the terrace overlooking two, yes, count them, two canals. You can have a nice drink at the bar before you sit down for your meal amdist the lovely Art Nouveau decor that is prevalent in Belhamel. This is one for people who like something different. The cuisine is French/Italian orientated but you can even go for some Dutch cuisine. The main dishes are quite special and include some game and fish dishes. You're best making reservations because this restaurant is understandably popular among locals for its intimate feel.
After asking my girlfriend to marry me, the restaurant accomodated with perfect setting, great attentive service and delicious cuisine. Overall it was a wonderful experience that complimented the night. Certainly will go back and not just for special occasions.
The view from the Belhamel is possibly the best in Amsterdam. The interior is art deco from the ceiling down to the wainscoating and emanates a warm, rich atmosphere. Below that it is like a Dutch eetcafe, with small wooden tables, plain kitchen chairs, no tabelcloth. The prices are for the upper part. The food doesn't deliver against what the menu promises: yellow beets are red. My companion who is Jewish didn't want pancetta with the Belhamel salad. There was not even a possibility to substitute pork for something else. The cork of the Pinot Gris broke off and was yet poured. When we evaluated the wine and determined it was off, the waiter huffed that this was what a Pinot Gris tastes like.
While the food was quite amazing, the atmosphere and views were over the top.
You are sitting at the intersection of two very cool canals. And the surrounding buildings seem other-worldly.
This place is worth every penny.
definitely the most romantic place in
Cuisine is perfect especially soups and wine.
Visited in March 2005, in a very cold,windy and snowing afternoon...
I think in summer time would be great to sit outside and watch the canal view
