Headed to Amsterdam for a week in April. Looking for advice. This is second trip and plan to: Stay at the Rennaissance, have dinner at Balthazars Keuchen and d'Antica, bike inside and in the areas around the Keukenhof. This is second visit so have done the museum stuff. Anyone have resto or activity advice. Jazz club recommendations? Any input appreciated.
Just got back and you are in for a special time!
The Ren. is great and I will share with you some places that we found exceptional (Not in price, but value). We hit a lot of places that were not well known but found the prices to be very reasonable.
Not far from the Ren. is the best meal We had for under 10 Euros PP!
The Madre Maria featured a great steak, fries and salad for under 10 euros. Plus a musician entertaining the diners. The steak was cooked over an open wood grill and was so good we ate there a second night and had a wonderful chicken dinner.
It is just a short walk from the REN.
Thanks for the suggestion Jerry
Steak and fries is a fav of mine in Europe. The train suggestion is a good one. We have done the Thaylis trains before. Not this trip though. We may try going east for a day in Cologne, I believe the TGV's or ICE fast trains go that way still working on that. Will post a report on Balthazars Keuken and d'Antica after we return. d'Antica was amazing last visit.
I am so glad you enjoyed the Madre. It was one of the best values we have found in all of Europe. We loved the wood fired grill and the prices was like 10-15 Euros for a three course meal!
Jasman, thanks for sharing other places with us, as we are working on our next trip to AMS soon!
