Fodor's Expert Review Bord'Eau

$$$$ Rembrandtplein French Fodor's Choice

Inside the regal Hotel de l'Europe, this playfully modern French restaurant is elegant without being stuffy. Of course, the ingredients are top-notch, but what really sets the Michelin-starred cooking apart are the inventive preparations, such as scallops cured with dulse seaweed in Thai shrimp consommé with kaki fruit and apricot kernel oil. Don't miss the stunning desserts, like the show-stopping "Damascus rose" (made with beet and cacao butter with goat's cheese and olive oil) with lime ''dew drops" and a heart of lychee sorbet. To avoid breaking the bank, opt for one of their lunch tasting menus. For a view to match the meal, ask for a table overlooking the Amstel River.
