We are Tracy and Marc. He’s from Amsterdam, I’m from London. Though we live in the UK we often visit family and friends in The Netherlands with our young sons – mini Dutchies Oscar and Zac.
This blog is not comprehensive and its in no particular order. Its simply a list of places we love. There are many restaurants and cafes we have been to that haven’t made the list. There are many others we are yet to try. This is mostly a guide to great food (where possible places that Amsterdamers know and love) and suggestions for how to occupy kids.
Amsterdam is small – walk, cycle or take a tram to anywhere in the centre (and indeed further afield). Let us know if we have missed anything wonderful – and enjoy this incredible city, nothing makes us happier than sharing its wonders.

I’ve recently been invited to contribute to the completely wonderful City of Amsterdam “iamsterdam” website as their official “family blogger”. You can find my posts here.
