Jordaan, Amsterdam –
The Dulac became instantly popular with Dutch students when it began to offer half-price meals to those with a student ID – but even without the discount, the place offers appetizers, entrées, and drinks at reasonable prices, and in a delightful environment.
Inspired by the French book illustrator Edmund Dulac, the original artist-owner turned the spacious restaurant into something of an eclectic dreamscape by decorating the restaurant with intricate tables, quirky lighting fixtures, telephone booths, antique instruments, treasure chests, giant vases, and theater props.
The rooms are wrapped in dark, warm colors that soften the atmosphere and create a romantic vibe where friends and groups linger over food and drinks.
With soft jazz playing in the background, the enchanting restaurant makes for a perfect escape on a rainy afternoon, while the two outdoor terraces offer a pleasant alternative for sunny-day people-watching.
