We came for a seatme.nl promotion. I have NEVER had such wonderful food and I've eaten around the world and Aan de Poel was creative, delicious, and such food as I've never had. The wine parings were to die for. Yes it's expensive BUT worth every Euro! You must go if you have a special occasion. It is a meal... More

I do not think I have ever had a finer meal than our dinner at Asn de Poel. There are many great restaurants but this place felt like we could come there again and again. The night we were there we saw businessmen, couples, friends and families. Everyone was genuinely sincere. The food was fabulous without being pretentious. Nicely done!

The food was good but we've had better! 2 stars? Give me a break! If the stars are given for presentation and innovation, then maybe yes. But not flavors!

I went to Aan de Poel for our wedding anniversary and had a fantastic evening there. The food was exceptional, highly refined and creative. Service was exemplary while friendly and relaxed, and despite the restaurant being completely crowded on that saturday night, the tables were far apart enough that we were not disturbed by the noise and conversation of others....

Had a few hours to kill before catching my flight so what better way to spend them than hop in a cab and sit down to a leisurely lunch by the lake looking out to planes taking off from schipol. This was also memorable for being the best meal I had during this visit to Amsterdam. Pity I was by... More

Every moment perfect ! Every course was well balanced and imaginative bout based on classic interpretations . The lobster was perfect, it looked like a scuba dive moment and I loved it! Dover sole with fois gras gravy was genius! The desert of caramel pear and apricot was a delight! Basically a beautiful setting with excellent service and superb food... More

This restaurant is fabulous, the staff is very friendly, the location so quite and an amazing lake view. Went here with my partner for my birthday dinner and the menu was meant for me. A lot of fish and I loved every dish of the 6 course season menu. Want to return as soon as possible!
