Good for a feed. Food solid but not exceptional. Services c was not great.
Wonderful beef stew, great service and a beautiful atmosphere. Walking distance from the central train station.
This is one of my go-to restaurants in Amsterdam. Cozy, comfortable, warm and welcoming. The food is always good. Fresh ingredients, particularly the seafood, prepared extremely well. The service is always good and the wine list very reasonably priced.
Excellent meal in a great location. I focused on local dishes and thoroughly enjoyed them. All around, am enjoyable experience.
Had dinner on 12/26/17 and everything was great. A short walk from our hotel, and within the city center in AMS. Staff very friendly and accommodating, and all the dishes we tried were very good.
This was our third visit since September and we brought friends the last two visits. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was very good.
We will definitely visit again when we are back in Amsterdam.
We ate here on a Friday night and it was busy but not overcrowded. I had the beef filet and my husband had he fish, both were excellent. The dessert waffle was amazing. The atmosphere was cozy and warm on a very snowy, cold night.
The place looked very nice, the high ceiling and effective lighting, brick walls were all very attractive. However, the menu was disappointing, very limited and with some odd combinations- and there was nothing on it that we wanted to order, so we left without eating.
We were in Amsterdam for a weekend and were looking for a good Dutch restaurant and took Open Table 'advice'.
We both thought that the food choices were excellent, and the service good. As we found in general in Amsterdam, things are at a slower pace than in Scotland and we were able to have our meal at a relaxed pace.
We both went for Dutch flagged starters, I had the Amsterdam platter, my wife had the Shrimp croquettes, both were were nicely presented and tasted very nice.
Our mains were Sirlion Steak, very well cooked, with some nice sides, Anne had Venison and had what she said were some of the best sides, an unusual, but fantastic red cabbage being the main one.
The selection of Dutch cheeses made a fine finish to the meal.
For anyone going to Amsterdam, looking for good food in a pleasant atmosphere, this is a very good option.
Beautiful,cozy ambiance with great service. We tried lore of the local food and it did not disappoint. Very fresh and well prepared. Flavours were wonderful. Highly recommend
