Hi mates, will go to Amsterdam first week in August, is there a resturang/pub or something else that a visitor should`t miss?
Cheers

Apart from the obvious touristy-things (red light district, anne franks house, Rijksmuseum, Madam Tussauds, de Dam), Amsterdam is great for shopping.

If you want a bar or pub, I'd go for het Leidscheplein. Lots of bars there.

Picking a restaurant really depends on the budget and what cuisine you're looking for. Restaurant Bollywood is a good pick if you like indian food. If you're looking for something more classy, try to get a seat at Ron's Gastrobar. Michelin-star chef, but with barfood-style dishes, improved with finesse and good quality, unexpected ingredients.

Some recommendations (quick scan):

- Stedelijk Museum (museum of modern art and design, currently good exhibitions about Henri Matisse and the ZERO movement)
- Foam (Photography museum)
- Eye (Film Museum)
- Amsterdam Museum (Museum about the history of the city)
- Artis (The oldest zoo in the Netherlands, and one of the oldest in the world, visit it during Saturday evening with live music and picnic)
- NDSM-werf
- Jordaan
- Good but popular restaurants are de Biertuin, het Badhuis Javaplein, Loetje, Tolhuistuin, Noorderlicht, Sapori Del Mondo. Avoid restaurants at the Red Light District (restaurants on Zeedijk are good), Dam, Damrak, Korte Leidsedwarsstraat. Area's with lot of good restaurants are Spui, Haarlemmerstraat, Overtoom, Ferdinand Bolstraat, Jordaan, Zeedijk, Rembrandtplein (also a lot of tourist traps), Utrechtsestraat.
- Visit Foodhallen (Amsterdam-West), good food displayed on small market stands, good prices.

- Very good food at a relatively low cost: Nam Kee on Zeedijk. Don't expect anything fancy but just go experience the food in a cheap but cozy atmosphere, does the trick for me.
- One of the new "all-in-one" spots including a brewery, cafe, restaurant and terrace: Brouwerij Troost on Cornelis Troostplein. They are currently expanding to the Westergas area so they must be doing something right, and the manager has the looks as well. ;)

Be aware that most people in here are worse tourists than tourists from other countries can be, you usually don't explore different cities too much in your own country. If there's something local you're interested in we might be able to help but otherwise looking at the Lonely Planet app is most likely just as helpful. There are tons of parties/clubs/festivals, restaurants, museums, etc in all different styles.

So be more specific in what you'd like to see / experience / whatever.
