We went there as it appears as top choice according to lonely planet. It is a nice place, well decorated and the staff is very nice to the point you would think they are the owners. The food is good but pricey. We had high tea and really enjoyed the soup above all. Try to get a table by the... More

Loved the place! One of the best breakfast I have had in Amsterdam if not the best one! Raspberry pistachio pancakes are delicious. Definitely coming back!

For lunch had brioche with cauliflower and mushrooms sandwich. So delicious. Very different than anything I have had recently. Would go back asap. Reserve if you can.

The service was friendly and the food delicious - wholesome and fresh. If you like an informal café-style restaurant, with simple and very well-prepared food - GO! It took a while to find down a backstreet, but was well worth it

Tried to make a reservation. Told that we didn't need one but when we arrived they told us that they couldn't seat our large party. Only after much discussion, they deemed it ok to seat us separately. Once other customers left, they did "allow" us to sit together. The food was very good though. I had a cumin infused cheese...

I'd been told this is a tiny place so I tried my luck for a very late lunch and got the table up in the loft. Service was friendly enough, they pointed me to the English menu as soon as they realised I didn't speak Dutch. I had the ox sausage on Swedish bread, which was interesting. The salad was... More

So, we've gone to Gartine based on all the positive reviews here. Unfortunately we couldn't taste any of the food as we didn't have a reservation. Which is actually totally fine. But we went there the day before to say we'd come on the next day and they said we wouldn't need a reservation. Then we went there and all... More

This place was fun to visit. The food was simple yet tasty. It is a medium sized space, with an open kitchen.
