De Belhamel

Top choice european in Western Canal Ring

In warm weather the canal-side tables here at the head of the Herengracht are delightful, and the richly wallpapered art-nouveau interior set over two levels provides the perfect backdrop for exquisitely presented dishes such as poached sole with wild-spinach bisque, veal sweetbreads with crispy bacon, onion confit and deep-fried sage, or a half lobster with velvety salmon mayonnaise.
