Restaurant Haesje Claes



Ok, first things first: There aren't many Dutch restaurants in Amsterdam. You'll find plenty of multicultural restaurants but a true blue Dutch restaurant can be a real find. Enter Haesje Claes, a restaurant known for its authentic Dutch cuisine. Situated in the historical centre between Dam Square and Spui.

Inside Haesje Claes

Spread across six buildings, most of which have retained the original architectural features from over a century ago. There are three entrances to the restaurant and you can usually find queues forming up on all three from 7 pm onwards. So, it's probably not a bad idea to get a reservation done beforehand.

Stepping inside, you'll find the interior pleasantly cosy, what with the quaint, homely setting and high beams to give an atmospheric appeal. There are several alternatives to settle in, from the Red Dining Room to the Koningshut, the Gent's Lodge and the Terrace.


The menu runs by three courses complemented with specialties in fish and meat and accompanied by a beverage.Traditional alcoholic beverages like genevers are also on the menu, along with quite a collection of wines.

In terms of service, Haesje Claes is a winner of the 'Best Service in a Restaurant' award from Time Out Amsterdam in 2010. The restaurant offers a Gluten-free menu as well.
