Thessaloniki Bougatsa (a Greek pastry with custard, cheese, spinach, feta

Greek teas!

Kartika For
delicious & traditional Indonesian food. We recommend trying Rijsttafel,
which is literally translated to Rice Table. It consists of many small dishes
with meat, fish, veggies (vegetarian options available too) of different
flavors, textures, colors & degrees of spiciness served with rice. We call
it an Indonesian tapas. Make sure to reserve a table beforehand!

A family-run Afghan restaurant. Beautiful and very tasty dishes made with
care and passion. There is no menu since they use seasonal ingredients and
create dishes on a daily basis. The restaurant is situated in the heart of
beautiful Jordaan. The interior is not very cozy, but the food is fantastic!

Contact info: Tweede
Leliedwarsstraat 13 / +31 (0)20 421 6374 / Wed. Sun. 17:00 22:30


La Perla
Authentic and delicious wood-fired pizzas, pastas and salads. This little
eatery is situated in the Jordaan. Service is not the best, but the food is
very good. If you go in the evening, be sure to make a reservation beforehand.

Spectacular Shore Excursions

"Everything worked out even better than planned. On all three shore excursions we met people in the bus who said they appreciated those excursions and they were far better than the ones offered by the ship. We, too, were impressed with the quality of the excursions and tour guides. The cruise was spectacular and all the arrangements made in advance were spectacular."
