This restaurant is the best and don't think you have to be a garlic fan! So great and delicious and not overwhelming garlic! Wow great service! Can't say enough about how wonderful to be served by someone who is happy and passionate about the food!

We had dinner there on Saturday night. It is a small place with seating for about 50 people, so I would suggest making a booking. The service was friendly and relaxed. The food was great. The meals are of a good size for the prices. If you love garlic then it's a place to go!!

We had a rather pleasant Valentine’s dinner here. The restaurant is located in a very lively neighbourhood, nearby the flower market and main shopping streets. We were not starving so settled for shared olives as appetiser, and a main: duck confit with sauerkraut and mash potatoes. Everything was good if unsurprising. The duck leg wasn’t dry which is a good... More

Went there with a group of acquaintances. The restaurant specialises in the use of garlic. We had a variety of appetisers which were nice but a bit on the small size. The main course was good though the pasta was a bit high in fat. The desserts looked very nice. The service was cordial and efficient. Will go back

Tried this place on a visit to Amsterdam, small, cozy, and very charming dinning spot! The service is excellent, and great ambiance, small place so make a reservation. The lamb shank is excellent and everything we tried was exceptional..certainly worth a visit..

Could not get prime rib cooked medium well , or would have rated higher. Good, but definitely not pushy service. Food was tasty and well presented. As the name implies everything is garlic flavored. Enjoyed bite size appetizers for 4 Euro per serving.
