La Rive

$$$$ Amsterdam-Oost French Fodor's Choice

Fodor’s Expert Review

Inside 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 food. The setting is chic and refined, with views directly onto the river and formal service that is solicitous but not stuffy. There are several prix-fixe choices with optional wine pairings, though you can also order à la carte. Ingredients focus on the best of the best, from caviar to lobster to Wagyu sirloin, all creatively prepared and gorgeously presented; each dish is a work of art. Book ahead, as this has long been known as one of Amsterdam's haute-cuisine showplaces.
