The "Garlic" refers to the leitmotif that accents the most delightful fare, the "Queen (of Netherlands)" presides over the elegant decor. Reguliersdwarsstraat has many restaurants, big and small, and duriing our vacation in Amsterdam, my partner and I visited many. But Garlic Queen is by far the best. The restaurant has the feel of a private party, the host is... More

Great concept, everything with Garlic. Though they also offer food without garlic. I loved the soup which we had and food was amazingly food. The waiter was very polite, gave us good recommendation in a friendly manner. Wine was good too.

I've been coming to the Garlic Queen for the past 10 or so years and have never been disappointed. The service, intimacy and outstanding food make for a memorable dining experience. My favourite is the garlic soup and last night I tried the Parpadelle Pizzaiola which was very spicy but did not overwhelm the garlic flavour. Although they have several... More

It seems to have been around for years but this restaurant is always on our list when we go to Amsterdam and never fails to disappoint. Of course if you don't like garlic avoid at all costs but otherwise be prepared for a treat. The beef stew with 50 cloves is excellent as is the prime rib but my favourite... More

The current 4.5 star review is not justified. Very charming interior, but the food is only average. Of 5 dishes between us, only one was 'very good' - the garlic soup. The rest was mediocre. My two dishes (mushrooms starter and shrimp main) were too garlicky, which drowned out the flavor of everything else. On the other hand, hubs' main... More

The food was so so and overpriced. I love garlic, but nothing we had was so exciting. Can't really recommend.

The food was very good, tasty and not kitchy, i really recommand the garlic sorbet, so unexpected! The manager is extremely nice and the service was awesome. The house red wine is fine. Other wines are a little too overprice

Don't let the name of the restaurant drive you away from it. Garlic is not a must here. You can have perfect garlic-free dinner with quality (tasty) food here! If you love garlic this is a place for you, though. They even have special garlic beer! I had tuna steak; menu declared that it comes with lots of garlic. It... More
