Amsterdam may never become a gourmet capital like Paris or London, but if you know where to book, you can eat very well. Particularly famous is De Kas, a beautiful fine-dining restaurant that is located just outside the city in a soaring glass conservatory. Be aware that waiters in Amsterdam do not work for tips, so service can be a mixed bag. Some dining experiences are seamless and professional, while others can verge on the comical or abusive, with waiters so uninterested in diners’ needs that they make their Parisian counterparts seem like charm-school graduates.
