Amsterdam Restaurant Recommendations
GM Amsterdam

The ICMA HO has put together some restaurant recommendations for the Friday night free time in Amsterdam.

Kindly note we recommend making reservations ahead of time, as Friday nights can book up rather quickly. As well, the kitchens in Amsterdam do not stay open so late – so for the Southern Europeans and South Americans attending – please keep this in mind!
