The rules of traditional fine dining disappear at our Amsterdam restaurant where everything is in service of the most important aspect of food: taste. In the heart of the city we serve uncomplicated European flavours with a Dutch edge.

Our chefs create rustic, seasonal dishes with locally produced ingredients, pairing them with specialty wines, locally brewed beers and exclusive cocktails.

I took my nephew there for a special celebration (30th birthday). Despite the fact I had mentioned this in booking. I was disappointed that there was no recognition by the restaurant. Otherwise all good.

The restaurant is situated within a hotel so there is a good mix of customers. The 3 course menu with paired wines was very good but food preparation did not really live up to what I would expect of a higher level restaurant. The duck was tough and the portion small even by tasting menu standards. The undoubted star of the night were the wine pairings suggested by the Sommelier who was both interesting in her explanation of the wines and informative on the reasons behind her choices.

Creative cuisine with local ingredients. Tried the 4 course menu with wine pairing. Wine pairing was excellent and I would say that 2 out of the 4 courses were too. The other two were average. Considering the excellent service and the modern but comfortable environment, I would go back for a special occasion only, since I consider it a little over priced.

What a cool spot! Tucked away inside the trendy Andaz hotel, this 3/4/5 course tasting menu offers innovative dishes from an open concept kitchen. I’d definitely recommend it for a special occasion and group dinners!

A great meal at Bluespoon, service was also great, they really looked after us when they found out it was our anniversary. Food was great, langoustine in particular fantastic. The hotel is beautiful and the cocktails in the bar are also delicious and a break from the norm. We didn't finish until 11pm, and there was a bit of a focus on setting up breakfast which delayed the bill a little, but overall great food and service at a fair price

Visited this restuarant whilst in Amsterdam and although a little pricey (especially the alcohol) it was amazing. The staff were attentive and explain all the ingredients of each dish, they gave us 3 complementary taster dishes, which again were amazing and enabled me to try new foods.woukd definitely go back.

Excellent tasty food. Nice ambiance. I only wish some portion (like the duck dish) would be a bit bigger, meaning, in this case, would at least have some veg. with it.

We wanted to eat at the bluespoon to celebrate the engagement of my friend and my own university graduation. Unfortunately one of the waiter made us feel that we didn't belong to this place. Two other waiters were kind and polite so at the end it was a good experience. But I would not recommend this place if you have not a lot of money to spend and you want to be treaten correctly. Food was ok but not worth the price. I would recommand the restaurant Jansz really fency and beautiful a great food not to expencive and a perfect service.

Went to Bluespoon with my mum to celebrate my 40th birthday. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us like royalty and every course that we were served was exquisite. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and the decor (by Marcel Wanders) is very unique. If I am ever in Amsterdam again I will definitely return to Bluespoon

We kwamen voor een verjaardagsdiner, en zijn door de crew waanzinnig in de watten gelegd. Wat een culinaire heerlijkheden. En de bijpassende wijnen waren top. Het was helaas niet druk, maar misschein was dat ook wel weer lekker, want we kregen de volle aandacht. We kijken er naar uit om dit nog een keer met vrienden te herhalen.

Food was fantastic and the wines that accompanied were well chosen.

However we had pretty poor service. My wife and I are Americans but have been living in Amsterdam for almost 2 years. We understand that service in Amsterdam is different than other places. We did the 4 course menu and it took over 3 hrs. The time between when the 2nd course plates and wine glasses were taken and third course wine was poured was 45 minutes. We were forgotten about. When we were finally able to find someone they asked if our main course had been served yet. We had said no. Another 15 minutes went by and we were served. So that is an hourr between courses.

During the time we were waiting between meals we noticed that other tables that did the wine pairing were allowed to the taste the wine before having it served. We were never offered to taste. In addition we noticed that the English speaking tables were not offered tastes, but the Dutch speaking were. This is a hotel restaurant, why should there be a difference.

Overall, great food, poor service and I will never go again.

Gazpacho: Good but did need more of the liquid element alongside the lovely fresh additions. Liquid barely wet the surface. Intense flavour. Veal tenderloin delicious and meltingly tender. Accompaniments good but not as good... fennel simply cooked in a quarter, nice reduction somewhere. Pasta was simple and well done. Apple dessert basically a mille feuille and v light not over sweet. Fair selection of wines by glass but nothing v outstanding. Willing if slightly distracted service. Only 2 tables occupied and the wines came late so heaven knows what like if busy! Does feel a bit like you are in a hotel lobby which of course you are....Would go again, but not sure if lunch or dinner.
