I had a good friend visit me last weekend and on her final night, she wanted to try typical Dutch cuisine. I searched around for suggestions and decided to try out Café 1900. It fit all the criteria: original location (not hardcore central plaza), good prices, and a full-fledged Dutch menu.
I made a reservation – this is suggested as the restaurant is rather tiny and it gets busy during dinner.
Café 1900 is a little out of the way – about a 15 minute walk from the Vrijthof. It has a lovely, cozy ambiance and is populated by locals rather than tourists. We were served by a lovely waiter who knew little English but got his word across and added a few bonus skewers to our dish. I ordered the Dutch saté: five beef skewers covered in dark peanut/sesame sauce next to a medium-sized salad. We had croquettes as a side which were absolutely delicious and my favourite part of the meal. Everything was fresh and tasty. The Asian white chips placed on top of the dish were the only addition that I wasn’t a fan of, but I suppose they added a touch of culture to the dish.
Definitely recommended as a cozy place to dine the Dutch way.
Apologies for the blurry phone pic!
