Mata Hari | Amsterdam

Mata Hari Terrace
I ended up in this restaurant with my brother because we were close to this part of Amsterdam (where I actually never really come) and some friends had told me about this place. Well, we did not regret going here.  Mata Hari is a restaurant, bar and living in the Red-Light District in Amsterdam. Imagine the Red-Light district in Amsterdam on the Oudezijds Achterburgwal swamped with tourists, you first want to get through that bit before you get to Mata Hari which is located in a traffic-free  bit.  That said, if you take out the ‘windows’ and tourists it’s a beautiful part of town with amazing architecture and cute little streets. We sat on the terrace and I was pleasantly surprised by the food they serve. We both had a wonderful original and fresh salad to start, the day fish as a main and a cheese platter to finish. All was exceptionally good.  The look inside the restaurant is a mixture of retro vintage and modern. There are comfortable armchairs, cozy lighting and the place consists of two floors. When we were there someone was playing the piano which is always good! Oudezijds Achterburgwal 22, Amsterdam | You can walk from the Dam, Central Station or Nieuwmarkt |+31202050919 | €€€ | Website | Map
