Review Lonely Planet

Gare de l'Est has both the smallest menu in Amsterdam and also the largest. They say that because four chefs (from traditions including North African, Mediterranean and Asian) take turns nightly in the kitchen, and what their course menus lack in length they make up for in variety over the course of a year. Portuguese tiles and glowing Middle Eastern lamps adorn the interior, and courtyard seating exudes good vibes.

Review The New York Times

This distinctive detached house with a conservatory extension and a large sidewalk terrace was built in 1901 as a coffeehouse for longshoremen (dockworkers). A meal at this restaurant is an altogether good reason to make a trip to a part of town that's becoming ever more fashionable. As the restaurant's name indicates (it means "East Station"), the cuisine is traditional French -- but its chefs do incorporate Mediterranean touches.The strict five-course formula (starter, salad, main course of meat or fish, cheese, and dessert) leaves no room for choice -- except for the main course -- but plenty for market-fresh ingredients and culinary creativity. Try pulpo estofado et risotto nero (octopus stew and black rice) as a starter, and roast lamb with gazpacho and farfalle as a main course.
