amsterdam II

The Belhamel is a cozy and exquisite restaurant on the Brouwersgracht in Amsterdam. Set on the corner, with three bridges directly in view, it provides a perfect view of what you would expect from Amsterdam. The tourist boats continuously passing, bikers making their way along the tree lined canals and the delivery of fresh produce while you are having lunch make for a wonderful experience.

We started out with some jasmine green tea outside, enjoying the minor breeze and sporadic drizzle before it really started raining. If the weather is less than perfect, and any of the three tables on the first row inside are available reserve one of those. You will then still have a view of the canals while remaining dry in this remarkably pretty place.

The restaurant and the secluded bar exude a romantic early twentieth-century Parisian ambiance, featuring many authentic art nouveau details.

 Photo taken with my iphone.   The food was presented in a beautiful manner. Nothing too cutting edge or flamboyant, but still with a great deal of details to make it special.   hmm and yes we had dessert - I guess the eating healthy lifestyle has it's limits. Though in all honesty, there was fruit on top..... so technically........ohh who am I kidding. (it was divine) :)
