Few things are gratis in Amsterdam, where you'll probably pay for your own meal even on a romantic date. But Seasons restaurant gives new meaning to "going Dutch" with a two-for-one Early Bird Special.
Set on a pretty side-street off the Herengracht, the cozy bistro is in the heart of the canal belt, near Amsterdam's Jordaan. The menu features international cuisine, with fare like Indian Chicken Tikka Masala, Asian-inspired Miso Salmon, rack of lamb with mint pesto sauce, and an “inside-out” Beef Wellington. Even Holland is represented in the culinary tour, with a thick pea soup starter.
The “buy one get one free” special is offered Monday–Thursday, 5–6pm and Friday–Sunday, 4–6pm. In addition to lowering your bill, it ensures you'll be visiting when the restaurant is at its romantic best, before the dinner crowd arrives en masse around 8pm.
Reservations are required for the Early Bird Special. Reserve online and arrive 15 minutes early to take advantage of it.
