Wat wordt het? Neem je plaats aan de chef’s table? De gezellige hoge tafel die ideaal is voor een grote groep of een tafel voor twee in de erker? Hoofdstad Brasserie in hotel l’Europe brengt je voor even naar Frankrijk. Chef Sebastian Baquero Garces en zijn team tovert oesters, steak tartare, paté en croûte kreeft, eclairs en meer van dat soort heerlijke Franse lekkernijen voor je neus, maar dan wel in een prachtig jasje. Vanaf de brasserie tuur je zo over de Amstel en zit je in het voorste deel, dan kun je de keukenbrigade aan het werk zien. Hou je van kazen? Vraag dan ook naar hun kazen collectie, want die is wel heel erg fijn om je maaltijd mee af te toppen.

Tip van bySam: Zomers op het terras visgerechten snoepen met bubbels of een glaasje wijn. Je zit pal aan de Amstel, dus je kunt je wel voorstellen hoe bijzonder dat is.

    Good food, nice environment (nice view of canal). This feels like a hotel brasserie - there won't be any mistakes but there isn't much character. Less expensive and more authentic alternatives nearby. Safe bet for travelers wanting t o avoid surprises,

    Service was slow at times and one client had to wait for dessert. I was charged for tap water!!

    Finding a spider in my salad and no apologies despite me being really discreet about it is unacceptable.

    Excellent service and great atmosphere. we had stakes, they were amazing, minus the delay between the starter and the main (we were sitting idle for a little while, but it's worth the wait and the wine was really really good). they have fixed menu 3 course meal for around 32€. I didn't really like the options available and went for regular options. with 2 bottle of wine, starter, main and dessert, we spend around 180 euro. Not very cheap, but worth the money for the quality of food and the wonderful service we received.

    On this visit to Amsterdam we wanted to have a quick but good lunch in the city centre and walked into this place. The3-course menu for 36 € was amazing value, standout codfish salad and a some nice filling chicken breast. This place has nice views but not much of an atmosphere, but more than makes up for it with great food. Will definitely come again for lunch.
