At first we were a bit afraid of the hospitality, but quite fast we were eased at that point. We took the 6-course menu and added a dish from a-la-carte because risotto with vongole and 'paling' simply sounds too tasty. It was a bit of a wait, but we enjoyed a great wine, and when the good started to come... More

This is truly a 2 MIchelin Star experience combined with an 'feeling at home' touch to it. Great hospitality combined with excellent food and wine recommendations make the experience memorable, every single visit.

I was awed by the quality of Aan de Poel. The seasonal menu was accessible in it's basic ingredients, but its flawless execution left me feeling as if I were on another plane of existence. As a single diner (coming off a business trip and flying out the next morning), I wasn't shuffled into a corner, and received outstanding attention... More

Reception We arrived early, but were greeted at the door and seated immediately by a friendly waiter. No waiting at all. Ambience Very relaxed atmosphere, with guests dressed in anything from jeans to business suits. No dress code, in other words. Beautiful view of the lake. Service We vere immediately offered water, and then the best bread I've had in... More

In Amstleven a suburb of Amsterdam restaurant Aan De Poel is the best kept secret. The ambiance and the view of the lake are breathtaking. The food is fabulous haute cuisine. The choice of French and international wine is abundant. In between courses you are served with surprise little palate soothing items. The dessert is diverse and is a work... More

With the background of a magestic sunset, a calm ambiance and efficient service we sailed thru a very inovative menu with full satisfaction.

Absolutely fantastic food and amazing service. The chef suggested various courses for us all of which turned out to be delicious - especially the mushroom truffle soup and the beef casserole! Very convenient if travelling to the airport which is about 10 minutes away. Can't wait to go back.

Came here to celebrate our birthdays,and we wern't disappointed! Glorious weather and we sat on what has to be one of the most beautiful terraces in The Netherlands overlooking 'de Poel' (lake) in the sunshine. The food was fantastic and the wine arrangement left nothing to be desired. A wonderful meal and we will return for other special occasions.
