Restaurant Haesje Claes Amsterdam Reviews
A Delightful Dutch Restaurant Sep 29, 2014
Restaurant Haesje Claes is tucked away on a narrow street south of Dam Square. It looks small on the outside, but is large and busy on the inside. Still, it maintains an inviting atmosphere, intimately divided into several dining rooms. We were seated in the Red Dining Room, with dark wood paneling and a display of Delftware along the walls. Very elegant.
Dinner was a chance to try several Dutch specialities. The soup course was Pea Soup with Sausage. (I've never had such good pea soup!) The main was Hutspot (Hotchpotch), a Dutch stew combining a meatball, sausage, and bacon with potatoes. That was really good! To top it all off, dessert was a folded Dutch pancake with ice cream.
Dutch cuisine is hearty fare that holds many surprises! Definitely recommend Haesje Claes to try it.
The restaurant provides free WiFi.
