Amsterdam: Dutch Bitterballen and Croquette Tasting

1. Amsterdam: Dutch Bitterballen and Croquette Tasting

Enjoy a delicious meal at the Grand Café Restaurant 1e Klas inside Amsterdam Centraal Station at platform 2B. Taste 6 different types of croquettes and bitterballen while you enjoy a glass of Heineken draft beer, house wine or a soft drink. Also try veal bitterbal, Peking duck bitterbal, Thai Green Curry bitterbal, cheese arugula croquette, chicken satay croquette and shrimp croquette. The friendly and knowledgeable waiters will explain the different dishes and you will be given a sheet with additional gastronomic information. The result is an experience of comfort, style, and quality. The restaurant is a hidden gem (a sister of the Rijksmuseum) with a stunning view of the Old City Centre. Experience travel back through time, as the restaurant is located in the former 1st class waiting rooms. Between 1881 and 1889, master builder Pierre Cuypers from Roermond designed the Amsterdam Central Station. His craftsmanship is highly praised and he is often seen as the man who revived architecture in the Netherlands. The old waiting rooms are fully renovated (including the sign indicating the waiting times) which takes you back in time. The famous, monumental restaurant is considered by The Guardian as one of the top 10 best station restaurants in Europe and is a melting pot of national and international guests.

The food was amazing and the restaurant is beautiful. Would absolutely recommend. My only warning is that the bitterballen is a lot hotter than it seems, it felt cool when I picked it up yet still burnt my mouth quite badly. For those new to bitterballen, check the temperature inside before eating whole

The first class restaurant is absolutely worth seeing. Includes bar cockatoo. Staff very accommodating. Bitterballs are an interesting, albeit individual, matter of taste. It's definitely worth trying though ;-)

Fantastic experience! The place has a magic of its own and a history that is absolutely worth knowing. The bitterballen tasting is a journey made of Dutch flavors and traditions. A must try! Ugo Italy

The restaurant is exquisite. They also have a cockatoo parrot named Elvis, it even has its own insta. I liked the experience very much. I would recommend the wine, it is quite tasty

Very good tasting! We left very happy with the food.
