Amsterdam Restaurants



Haesje Claes

Haesje Claes Review

Groaning with pewter tankards, stained glass, leaded-glass windows, rich historic paneling, Indonesian paisley fabriks, and tasseled Victorian lamps, this restaurant's "Old Holland" vibe and matching menu attract lots of tourists. And why change a winning formula? The Pieter de Hooch–worthy interiors eclipse the food, although the (somewhat overpriced) dishes include an excellent pea soup and a selection of stamppotten (mashed dishes that combine potato with a variety of vegetables or meats). On cold winter nights, opt for the hutspot, a stamppot of mashed potato and carrot supplemented with steamed beef, sausage, and bacon. But nothing could be more "delicious" than the fabulous decor here, certainly in the running for Amsterdam's handsomest historic landmark.
