I had one of the best burgers I've ever sampled here....and I've sampled a lot. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, nice selection of wine, Tomaz will always have a place in my heart as I proposed to my fiancé here. Thank you Tomaz. :)

Place in a very nice location, in the middle of the city center, but hidden from the noise and the big walking crowd. Very simple and warm atmosphere, ideal for an informal dinner with friends or relatives. Personnel friendly and ready to suggest specialties of the house. Food difficult to judge: traditional dutch food, the quality of the cooking averaged... More

We had dinner in Tomaz after long and cold day exploring Amsterdam. Gluhwein was excellent and much needed, but after that, only one of us has been satisfied with the meal - my daughter ordered duck breast with mashed potato and it was perfect. I was unfortunate to get mussels and half of them were not open, my fries were... More

Cold day in Amsterdam and starving for a nice warm meal, we stumbled upon this little restaurant with a unique decor. We kept things traditional and ordered the famous Dutch pea soup, which we have had many times before. Here the recipe is different and it really punches some flavour. The soup is thick and very well season and it... More

I came with my family to spend the holidays in Europe. Our first stop was Amsterdam. On our first night in town as we were walking around the city we stumbled on this restaurant so we decided to go in. It's a very typical Dutch bar. The food was great and the service as well. As we were paying I... More

We stumbled across this place on a cold, very cold November day. We had just arrived in Amsterdam and were beginning our exploration of this fine city. Once inside we found a table and a pack of cards along with a load of board games which we thought was a great little touch. Dealt the cards, ordered our drinks from... More

Tomaz is a small restaurant tucked away in a side street in the center of Amsterdam and most people find it while coming out or in of the Begijnenhof, (one of my favorite spots in Amsterdam) or the Amsterdam Historical Museum. It has a small kitchen, but everything is freshly made that day and all local and not a burden... More

Went here on a recommendation from our hotel for traditional Dutch food. Service was indifferent and at each course, 3 out of our party of 4 couldn't get what they wanted as the dishes were sold out. The restaurant wasn't crowded and it wasn't late. What we had to settle for was just average at best. Sorry we went.
