Fodor's Review

Though thousands of buildings in Amsterdam are designated historic monuments, few have their interiors landmarked as well. This one does, and for good reason: it's an Art Deco extravaganza of arched ceilings, stained glass, leaded-glass lamps, and wall paintings. The brasserie-style food earns good marks, too: look for dishes like escargots, salade Niçoise, and lamb chops. A jazz brunch on the first Sunday of each month (except July and August) and the occasional Sunday Roast are worth planning around. The excellent coffee and cakes also make this a good place for afternoon tea (served daily).
