Café Americain

Celebrate Christmas 2018 in Amsterdam

Be pampered with real Class & Classics during Christmas! Café Americain has truly wonderful menus for lunch and dinner. Live music makes the experience just magical  (or may be just fill in those uncomfortable silences that sometimes occur during a Christmas dinner...).

Café Americain combines historic allure with 21st-century standards. High quality, accessible style and a large dose of personality. Amsterdam-sourced products on the all-day menu are supplemented with fine Dutch ingredients. Signature Chef Peter Gast gives a fresh twist to popular dishes such as French onion soup, prawn cocktail and the new, signature tartare. And obviously good coffee and gorgeous cocktails!
