Conservatorium

The Conservatorium Hotel opened a few months ago and over the weekend Mr E and I happened to be in the hood and checked it out.
It's a beautifully renovated building, and the Brasserie has a huge glass rooftop. Just lovely. There are so few spaces like this in Amsterdam. The lunch menu was nice and fresh. Mr E went for the Sunday Roast, and I the Salmon burger. Followed by...THE most amazing pavlova with passion fruit sorbet and passion fruit topping! It was huge. I ate it all. They also stock the best Cava from Spain, so somebody was pretty happy with that. And it was super delicious, I have to say. There's a restaurant and bar called Tunes, which isn't open for lunch. So we'll have to pop back one day and check that out.
Lots of ceramics on display in the center as their design feature. So you can see where they won me over...
There's a great outdoor terrace area, so on warmer days it's be a great place to hang out. Only there's a distinct lack of goldfish in their pools.
Aside for yummy food in a gorgeously light and bright space, the detail in the original building is just gorgeous. I loved the tiles with bees, spiders and spider web, and pigs!
View out the back at that fantastic terrace. We walked through the building, taking in the interior design - old and new.
