Herengracht, Amsterdam

4.4
Adorning the picturesque streets of the city and providing river transportation, Herengracht winds past the homes of the rich, showcasing centuries-old houses and quaint cafes. Among all of Amsterdam's canals, this one is the finest and most fashionable. See important and historic sites, such as the mayor's residential quarters and a house where Peter the Great stayed. Snap a photo of the seven bridges of the Reguliersgracht, which--if viewed from a correct angle--give the impression of a tunnel. Look for the oldest residential house in the city--a small 1590 home with a stepped gable, overlooking the water.

  • Each Canal is worth watching, but the Hereinbracht in my opinion has the most flair. To recommend in any case.

  • Excellent place with amazing food and wine. The truffle ravioli was simply the best I've ever had and the starter (watermelon and feta cheese salad) was also very tasty. My partner was also very happy with this choices of starter and main. The staff were nice and although our total bill was a bit higher than usual, it was 100% worth it. Will definitely go back when I visit Amsterdam again.
  • Absolutely love the food, attitude of waitress sucks. Had dinner one evening - 6 of us had warm nachos, fish, house steak, sardines in oil, flatbread pulled pork, watermelon feta salad. Had to endure poor customer service. Didn't deter us from coming back for lunch 2 days later
  • The location was nice, cozy and low-key. Not too crowded and the people were casual and relax. Drinks were Okay, nothing special.
  • Outstanding food at a decent price. Nice atmosphere. Desserts were to die for. We had to get seconds.
  • 5 stars foods with 2 stars sevice...i experienced four workers that evening and two workers were nice and the other two workers(I don't know if one of them was actually the owner) weren't service oriented. Especially their wry face took my epitite away from coming back. And even though I made reservation their miscommunication made my clients uncomfortable. In the end, we ate good but not so nice feeling...
