Brasserie Maxie's - Amsterdam, Netherlands: Located on Pieter Cornelisz (P.C.) Hooftstraat (Amsterdam's mini Fifth Avenue), located in the Museum Quarter neighborhood, by the high-end stores (Chanel, Gucci, Hermés, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, Cartier, Mont Blanc and Henckels) as well as several small boutiques, sits Brasserie Maxie's.
With seating both inside and outside, Brasserie Maxie's is a great place to sit with a nice glass of wine to do some people watching outside or to relax inside in it's beautifully decorated restaurant for lunch or pre-dinner drink.
The wine menu is a not extensive but the starter and dinner menu and the exceptional service more than makes up for that.
Is this a place I would book for an evening out? No. However, for an afternoon break from the heavy duty shopping (or window-shopping) or at the end of the day, the atmosphere and service make it the perfect place to unwind.
