Fodor's Expert Review Café-Restaurant De Plantage

$$ Plantage Mediterranean
The stunning decor in this expansive space on Artisplein at the ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo is reason enough to visit, but the Mediterranean-influenced food is good, too. Soaring ceilings supported by intricate metal beams, exposed brick walls, birdcagelike chandeliers, a huge central fiddle-leaf fig tree and enormous windows overlooking a volière (aviary) with meadow birds from Northern Holland are a lovely setting to enjoy dishes such as Basque fish soup, marinated lamb served with chickpeas and hummus, or red-beet-and-ricotta ravioli. A selection of tartines is available at lunch. The reasonably priced wine list, which helpfully categorizes wines as light, medium, or full, complements the food perfectly.
