La Rive

La Rive Review

Located within the InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam Hotel—the lodging of choice for royalty, dignitaries, and rock stars—La Rive is the city's unparalleled purveyor of refined French and Mediterranean cuisines. The setting is chic, with views directly on the river and formal service that is solicitous but not stuffy. If you don't mind emptying your wallet, settle in for the full seven-course menu for €112 (but you might just want to settle for a two-course lunch for €49). Anjou pigeon with apricots, duck liver, and beetroot is a typical starter, and main courses reflect a marked fetish for the ultimate ingredients. For instance, a meatier choice is their Wagyu sirloin with kailan (Chinese broccoli), pumpkin, and bay leaf. Even though the economy has made an impact on reservations here, it doesn't hurt to make a booking well ahead of time—after all, this has long been known as one of Amsterdam's haute cuisine showplaces.
