  1. I've got some great recommendations, but what are you looking for. Local Netherlands meal or ethnic that is done well?

      Everything and anything ! No fussy eaters on the trip so whatever you can give me would be great.

        Scroll down in the international thread and you will find what I ate as well as what other chowhounds recommended to eat.

          Forgot to mention, do not miss eating Rajistaffl (sp?) if you have not had it before. There are too many good spots in AMS to list and I have never been disappointed at any Indonesian restaurant that serves it.

    2. If you want Dutch food, I went to an excellent, somewhat fancy, place near the Oude Kerk (unless it was near the Nieue Kerk). Unfortunately, I forget the name. I also had a terrific Indian meal at Koh-I-Noor on Amsteldijk Street (I'm sorry if my names are off; it was a couple of years ago). I forget the Indonesian (Chinees-Indisch) restaurant I went to, but I had an amazing rijsttafel. Ask around when you get there; I'm sure there are a number of good places. I haven't been to the Five Flies, but I've been told it's good. Really, though, you can't get bad food there.
