Van Harte

International in Western Canal Ring

Behind floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a glistening mosaic-tiled bar and framed black-and-white photos of old Amsterdam make Van Harte look like an ultrachic drinking spot, but it's an even better place to dine on evening mains like braised lamb shanks with pearl barley, or a surf and turf of rib-eye and a half lobster. Generous salads and sandwiches feature at lunch.
