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.

Really cute garlic-concept! A must for garlic lovers like me, and also really tasty in general. We had the baked garlic as a starter which was amazing, and the main courses were excellent too. We decided we had to try the garlic beer and even that was good! Nice environment and great service, would definitely recommend this place!

Food was great. We went as two couples the menu didn't have loads of choices so we decided to order from the set menu as they had 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 deserts which was priced ok ish and food looked lovely. We tried to engage the waiter but he wasn't having it and I think we made matters... More
