Amsterdam can be a busy place, with lots of tiny, crowded restaurants and bars all over town. The result? Every now and then you probably wish there was one of those cosy, rustic restaurants like you’d find in smaller towns or in the countryside. With De Vergulden Eenhoorn there undoubtedly is one in Amsterdam as well.
Not too far away from one of the city’s biggest public transport hubs, this former farm next to a cute canal is a great getaway from all the city madness. Make sure you don’t pass it by.
Still in doubt whether you should go? The good food combined with a warm, rural atmosphere inside should help you decide. Oh, and the fireplace outside is the go-to spot for the Dutch summer nights. Especially after a walk along the small river. Besides that, they organize nice events – such as a local beer tasting with a well-fitting menu – every now and then, and since only recently they’ve got rooms to stay the night as well.
