Amsterdam Restaurants, Waiters, and Banks

Jump to last reply

Thanks again for all the advice during the planning stages.

Has there been a topic recently that was dedicated to restaurants in Amsterdam?
We eat everything and our budget is in the middle, even though we are not sure what that exactly means yet in Amsterdam or Brussels when balancing value and quality. If not could you please recommend any cuisine in the usual tourist haunts. We are renting an apartment just north of the Jordaan.

Second, my wife read that the waiters in Amsterdam at best are complacent and at worst, plain rude, is there any validity to that?

We have accounts with two very large banks in the states and neither one has branches or affiliations in Belgium and Netherlands. We are experienced travelers who like to pay with credit cards whenever possible, because we usually get a good rate but it seems many restaurants do not take cards. It seems like we are going to getting whacked when you use other banks ATM's for Euros. Any suggestions?

Thanks again.
