Situated in a historic warehouse dating 1659, between the Dam square an the Grand Central Staion, Van Speyk is a classic brasserie that serves French-influenced Dutch cuisine, in classy surrounds that feature chandeliers, exposed bricks and outdoor dining. The kitchen places a focus on using the freshest local ingredients and spices for authentic flavor. The menu features an extensive range of starters, entrees and sweet desserts. Van Speyk also offers a special group menu, created for groups of more than 12 and up to 50 (private dining services also available on request). Visit for Diner and gorge yourself on traditional classics such as Zeeland oysters ,a beefstew with oak-smoked sausages or an excellent steak Bordelaise. Complement it with some local beer or wine. Van Speyk is open daily, from 5.30 p.m. until midnight.
Fantastic! Great food and great service. Highly recommend.
Excellent food selection with a good proportion of Dutch sourced produce beautifully prepared and presented by pleasant staff. You certainly need to book ahead. Duck and Oysters were both superb as was my wife's choice of beef stew.
Location is very convenient. Staffs are very friendly and quick service.
Menu is nice for people who wants to have Dutch menu.
The food was delicious and the service was spot on.
Great food, and super friendly staff. Highly recommended.
Shame we came on the day the restaurant had a group of 20 people. Worse still, there was a table with 3 Americans in the middle or the restaurant which meant the group of 20 people couldn’t hear themselves talk. Obviously the restaurant cannot be blamed for the lack of manners of its customers, but I still wish Americans would be accompanied by an adult when they travel abroad. My left ear is bleeding.
Food was good.
What an amazing place. Food was awesome
Food mediocre, service and location are great
Spectacular meal. Food was prepared wonderfully -- staff was attentive and helpful -- excellent experience overall.
I was at van Speyk twice during my last stay here in Berlin, and was very impressed with the great atmosphere (in an old warehouse with exposed brick, big chandeliers, and comfy seating) and really good food. I had the Dutch Sole one evening and a steak the next. Service staff was excellent and very attentive. Would highly recommend this place!
Most of my friends & I had the duck & it was so delicious! The service was lovely & thank you for accommodating all 9 of us!
We had a lovely experience at this restaurant. The service and the food were wonderful.
The whole night was sensational highly recommend
Van Speyk is good.
Awesome food. Well prepared, tasty, beautifully presented. Service was outstanding. I had the tuna which was great. The desserts were wonderful. Highly recommended.
Nice restaurant, great food & wine, but average service.
Friends and I were traveling in Zurich. Found the restaurant on the web from the States and made a reservation because of the location and menu. We enjoyed it very much. Food is good. Service is friendly.
My fiancé and I ate here our first night in Amsterdam. We were not disappointed! Nice, quiet ambiance and delicious food. I recommend the duck. I would definitely eat here again in the future.
Very pleasant atmosphere with very good food at decent prices. Went here to try more traditional Netherland's cuisine. Service was attentive and friendly. Conveniently located just a short walk from the main street and central station.
Not sure if I can call this traditional Dutch cuisine, but the food was fine. I wouldn't really class it as excellent for value though, as I can probably get similar quality & taste with a lower price tag back in London. (Generally speaking, dining in Amsterdam is not cheap at all...)
Food was presented well, every dish that we had were tasty, but not super amazing. My ribeye steak was juicy and cooked well. But I do suggest giving the cocktails a miss, as they were not good at all.
The service was a big plus, we felt very welcomed from start to finish.
P.S they DO NOT serve tap water unless you order other drinks.
Great food! Great Service! Value priced! Good wine selection..
FANTASTIC experience. We were celebrating a birthday and JP made the evening spectacular. Would recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
Truly love my meal here, it was a birthday dinner date. Especially love the Escargo and Foie Gras. I am living in Malaysia, and have only been to two trips to Amsterdam and both trips I came to Van Speyk. I make sure I come back for these two. Thanks for the lovely dinner!
Really delicious food, great atmosphere with warm candle light. Quite busy but did not feel overcrowded.
Very good evening out in Amsterdam. Excellent everything - a must do for every winer and diner.
The food was okay, I found it over rated and not worth to try again.
Beautiful venue with amazing authentic Dutch cuisine. While they have other options the traditional Dutch food should not be missed!
Wonderful Amsterdam find! We had the seafood risotto and the duck confit. Both excellent, fresh and interesting. Our server was also excellent, friendly and well-informed, and made a great wine selection. We will go back.
Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von 8 Personen da. Wurden namentlich und sehr freundlich begrüßt. Tisch war liebevoll gedeckt. Essen war sehr gut. Ambiente toll. Preis Leistung sehr gut. Jederzeit empfehlenswert!
Very enjoyable. Food was superb and the service was friendly and efficient. Both my wife and I had the sole and would highly recommend.
Great ambiance and food.
Fish appetizer, carpaccio and salad were a nice way to start the meal.
Entrees were excellent, especially the Stew.
Service at a leisurely pace so just relax and enjoy the dinner. That's what we did.
Amazing service, great food and drinks!
Beautiful food. The starters in particular (Dutch Meatballs & the Carpaccio) were exceptional. Great ambience and the service was perfectly attentive. Visited on a Amsterdam city break with my girlfriend, will definitely visit again.
Fantastic. Great service, great food. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with a group of 8. Highly recommend for tourists who want something more authentic and less touristy. Did I mention the great food and excellent service!
Well look at the pictures and you know will know enough!
A pleasant contrast to the tourist dives around it on Spuistraat
It was a nice dining experience
This was our first meal on a recent trip to Amsterdam. What a beautiful Restaurant. The staff were warm and friendly with great suggestions on our food and drinks. Our server told us about the history of the building and the decor. Our meals were prepared to our liking and the presentation was beautiful. This was a wonderful experience and not to be missed when you are in Amsterdam.
We made a reservation at Van Speyk after a recommendation while on vacation. The wine list had great options to pair with menu offerings, the service was warm, friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed every course offered from starters (spinach salad and escargots) to entree (sole and beef stew) and sides (asparagus with grated Dutch cheese). I would recommend restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious meal while in Amsterdam.
