Dining at Joost is stylishly cosmopolitan: try Italian classics like Insalata Tricolore, Mexican tortilla wraps, rib-eye steaks or salmon tartare. Desserts are good, too.

See & Do
Arm yourself with an Amsterdam card (on sale at the tourist office at the station), which allows you free or cut-price admission to many of the city sights. A classic canal boat tour is a great way to see everything from the water.
Culture vultures should home in on the Rijksmuseum, home to works of the great Dutch masters. The Van Gogh museum is another must-see, as is the moving Anne Franks’ House.
They don’t call Amsterdam the Venice of the North for nothing, so hire a bike at Hotel Roemer to pedal around the canal-lined streets, or have a stroll through the Vondelpark.
Queen’s Day celebrates the birthday of the Queen Mother. Unofficially it is an excuse for some hard partying, and the world’s biggest street party.
Vondelpark is the stage for a season of al fresco theatre, dance and cabaret.
