Eric and I went to an interesting restaurant in Amsterdam yesterday.It used to be a North Sea Platform, used for commercial TV and was moved to an area near Eric's home.
Out of a choice of two House wines we preferred the Chardonnay. There was a very pleasant atmosphere (a little noisy) and the service was friendly. Do try it! Dutch info:click here

Our choice from the menu (for those who can't read Dutch)
Starters: A tasty clam chowder (with bacon-bits and cream) and a crostini with blue goats cheese, mushrooms and salad (yummy).
Mains: Eric had Halibut with asparagus, spinach and baby spuds, which he liked, but wasn't wild about. I had (superbly cooked) beef with potato-gratin, veg. and a lovely gravy, which I thought was excellent.
Dessert: we shared a scrumptious lemon tart with Chantilly creme and raspberries and sipped from our very nice dessert wine from the Chianti area. (marks: 7)
