De Roode Leeuw has been the central starting point for every visit to Amsterdam since 1911. The café-restaurant near the Dam has a daily variety of local and international guests. With its small-scale and personal character, De Roode Leeuw has long been able to turn visitors into regular guests. The restaurant, which gained fame thanks, among other things, to its classic Dutch dishes, has built an excellent name and invites nostalgic feelings among visitors. On January 23, 2017 the doors will temporarily close for a major restoration, the restaurant will open again this autumn. It will be a brasserie, but one in the style of De Roode Leeuw: accessible, cozy and typically Amsterdam.
