Mediterranean
The royal nature of THE DUCHESS is captured in the refined flavours from Southern France and Italy, known as Nouveau-Niçoise Cuisine. The custom-made Molteni kitchen is an impressive centrepiece fit for a royal, where exquisite dishes are created alongside decadently delicious desserts. THE DUCHESS menu is one of intricate simplicity with classics such as luscious Fruits de Mer platters, rotisserie and grill specialties and homemade ice-cream coupes prepared at the table. The heydays of a historic era are relived when one is seated at the majestic marble bar of THE DUCHESS. The exclusive Mariage Frères tea and champagnes are to be enjoyed in the elegant Tea Room during afternoon tea, featuring an array of delicate sweets, macaroons, éclairs, truffles and cotton candies. Afternoon tea at THE DUCHESS reminds one of an Alice in Wonderland tea party with an abundance of teacups, teapots and cake tiers.

    The location is fantastic, but the price you pay is not adequate to the food and service. Too small portions - too expensive. The dishes are served as they come out of the kitchen, so you don’t enjoy your dinner together. That’s ok in a fast food restaurant, but not at such an exquisite place, were your steak costs ca 45,- € without anything joined. The wine card only offers bottles no open wines are listed.... then by surprise one small glas rosè costs 12.-€ Listing it up on the card, there would be no bad surprise. Interior design and the ladies at the entry were top. Ambiente is top too.

    a big restaurant for when you want to dine with a group of 4 or more persons who enjoy good food, not too complex. Not suited for a romantic dinner for two or business meeting. They promote the "sharing" concept, so they stimulate to order more dishes per course, which can make it an expensive evening. Music was loud and because of the size of the restaurant we lacked a bit the "personal, intimate service".

    Family dinner and trip to Amsterdam We have been to The Duchess a few times over the years and the food and atmosphere is typically very good. Unfortunately this visit we were disappointed as the food was very salty on more than one dish and the service was poor. The service overall was not attentive or what one would expect for a restaurant of this calibre. For family style sharing dishes there were no serving spoons provided etc. Even when asked on multiple occasions dishes continued to come to our table without cutlery to serve. Disappointing overall given the price.

    Slightly disappointing as two dishes we wanted to order were unavailable which is not to be expected of a restruant of this stature. We were not made aware of the unavailable dishes when ordering it was like they hoped we just did not order those dishes.

    We booked this restaurant for a 34th anniversary dinner. It was a terrible mistake. The restaurant was loud, busy, and the tables were packed too close to each other, even though it was less than 50 percent full. We we first seated in the blazing sun, and when we asked to be moved, the restaurant refused. When we decided to leave, they finally relented, and moved us to a nearby but uncomfortable table. The server acknowledged that it was our anniversary, but then proceeded to ignore us for a half hour. She apologized repeatedly for how long our dinner was taking, but when our food came, it was cold. Never again.
