This restaurant has upscale structure - staff, table settings and food presentation. But, the food is average. Consequently it is not a good value. Business was brisk I suspect reservations are normally recommended. However, we got a table for four at 6:00pm as a walk-in.

We had the 4 course menu with the accompanying wine and were blown away by the interesting combinations! The pan-fried rooster was my favourite and we both loved the wine pairings, in particular the desert. Bussia has a nice, sophisticated atmosphere without being pretentious and we were very satisfied with the service. Will definitely go here again next time we... More

Had dinner here with my girlfriend in June 2015. Super friendly waitress met us and showed ut the table and the menu. Being veg we ordered ravioli with cooked asperges, perfectly made with a great white wine. We were also served a great tiny dish prior to the main meal, compliments of the chef. Dessert was an amazing ice/fruit/brownie/sorbet thing... More

We came and had a wonderful food and wines. It is always nice if the waitresses allow you to taste the wines. We sat on the first floor and had a nice view on the floor below and on the street as well.

A bit pretentious service. Small VERY stylized portions but very tasty. If you are really hungry you should go elsewhere.

If you love pasta, better go to another restaurant. I personally believe that set menu and Italian food hospitality just don't match. Bussia is rather a set menu place. The food is tasty, the wine list is impressive, although the speed of service is low.

We recently visited Bussia on a Saturday evening. The maitre (Nathalie) made sure to greet us personally in a most charming way. We were treated to a perfectly balanced 8 course tasting menu and the suggested wines accompanied well. The service was unpretentious and pleasurable. Nice restaurant in Amsterdam.

I booked a table at Bussia for our wedding anniversary based upon other reviews here on Tripadvisor so thanks to those earlier reviewers! The food was imaginative, well presented and great quality. We elected to have the wines to match our six courses and found them to be very well suited. We do enjoy this style of multi-course menu but... More
