Amazing food and service. All the small dishes we had were just amazing. A great experience. Service was excellent. The atmosphere is cosy, about 9 tables in total more or less.

I was taking a client out to dinner and let them pick the restaurant. This place is more than worth it's Michelin star. Service was of the highest standard and the food was sublime. Must make a note to bring my wife here one day.

I had dinner here with two friends and it was all incredibly delicious, extremely chic without being stuffy with faultless service. Wonderful sommelier too. It deserves at least two Michelin stars!

Pretty sure this is the best dinner we have ever had. Best service too. Location excellent - charming. A group of businessmen at a nearby table speaking English was the only distraction. If it had been Dutch, we wouldn't have had to listen in. Expensive but not stuffy. Every place else felt inferior - so save it for last.

My wife and I had a 5 course meal and different wines to go with it. Everything from start to finish was at a very high level. That includes the location, the food, the wine and the staff. The price was ok too compared to other Michelin restaurants.

The restaurant is located at the Dylan Hotel and is an area of Amsterdam that while nice is a bit more residential (as opposed to touristy). It is a moderate walk from most identifiable locations. We had a 5 course tasting with wine pairing. The food was absolutely superb and each dish was as good as we've had anywhere in... More
