Looks modest, serves delicious...

From the entrance until the end, one of the best Amsterdam experiences ever... We were attended by ever-smiling waitress who understood all our caprice for the order of the food. From amuse-bouche to deserts, everything we had was delicious, nothing was over-promised or ostentatious... Highly... read more

We went there for dinner, we had a six course menu and each dish was amazing. Wines selection was good and service just right. Note it is on the pricey side

Ate here at a team meeting dinner, 18 of us in a private area upstairs. Service was attentive and timely. We had a set meal with choice of mains, but the food was excellent for a set menu. Only little issue was the air conditioning, it was like sitting in a freezer, and took quite a while to get altered... More

Very disappointed after our visit to this restaurant as we were looking forward to an Italian meal. Although the food was good enough it certainly could not have been further away from the traditional Italian fare Italians don't put foam and flower heads on food! If you are looking for a VERY expensive dining experience this is the place for... More

Restaurant is right across the canal from apartment. Great service and friendly staff. The food is very good although sometimes a little over deconstructed.

We went planning a a quick single course as we had our 10 month old with us although we were looking at the degustation with envy. The waitress assured us she could get the kitchen to push the meals through quickly so our daughter didn't get restless and noisy. They even brought her out a bowl of pasta separately. All... More

We had the most amazing meal at Bussia. We booked a table for 7.30pm for 5 people. We all decided to go for the 4 course tasting menu. Every course was served beautifully and tasted great. The risotto was my favourite. It was my Aunt's birthday so the chef sent her a lovely platter of treats along with a happy... More

First, very friendly and personable wait staff. They make you feel welcome from the beginning and go out of there way to ensure you have a great experience. Both my friend and I are picky eaters, which limited our choices on the menu. But, they happily accommodated our requests. Next the meal, in one word, amazing. I have eaten at... More

Food was great from start to finish! We had the 4 course meal and the starter and dessert was to die for! Loved the mushroom Risotto and the chicken dish although I didn't have it in me to try the chicken testicles!😂 definitely worth a visit! Have tried a lot of tasting menus in different parts of the world and... More
