What a find! Hidden away in the Centraal Station, and quite difficult to find, this old 1st class passenger lounge is a bar and restaurant with direct access from it to the platforms - great for long trips preceded with a good meal. It's a...More

Although the restaurant is crowdy end noisy it is worthwhile to visit as it is only for the ambiance and the setting/decor. The old times revive. The food (I’ve been there already twice) is good, but a bit overpriced. The staff is hurried, but polite....More

This is a part of the iconic central station in Amsterdam. It is well worth booking. We went on a Monday night and it was very busy. The waiters were efficient; the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The room, an old waiting hall, was...More

I was with friends from The States. We had a great dinner with the AH action. The menu was perfect especially the Dame Blanche. You must reserve, it is a busy and popular restaurant

Friendly staff. Good and tasty food. Portions are not abundant. Prices are very reasonable considering that you are in Amsterdam Centraal Station (trains). Sometimes good deals with Fork/Forque/Iens. Don't be startled by the white parrot. Fun and harmless. Beautiful building.

A hidden gem in the hectic central station. You just do not feel like you're eating in a palace when you come here to eat and / or drink. The height and design of the ceiling is impressive. Unique along the track. We went for...More

When you just arrived in Amsterdam by train, just have a coffee and a piece of pie before you head off in to the city. It's a great place to start your day.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

There is a new automatic locker system near the right entrance door which seems complicated, especially at busy times. You need a ticket or pass to gain entrance. Put your stuff in an open locker (showing green) then shut... More
