Our - non-english - speaking waitress told us that we could choose the 3 course menu from the menu cart. When the bill came, we were however charged for 3 seperate courses. When complaining, the manager put the blame on the waitress, and was not willing to compensate. This was a sad ending of an otherwise nice evening

This no-nonsense restaurant is located in one of going out areas of Amsterdam. For some reason we had to wait too long to get the menu and drinks. We eventually selected the fixed price menu. The food was good but again we had to wait too long between courses. Our table was in the annex which did not do much... More

Excellent food. It is hard to believe this restaurant is ranked 332. The chef explained the menu options, and patiently answered questions. The restaurant was informed in advance that one of group is lactose intolerant. The chef was aware of this information and guided her to appropriate options, as well as letting us know what adjustments he could make in... More

We had a five course menu at A la Ferme. The two starters were excellent, but the duck as main course was no luck. Maybe we were to many that should be served at one time? The cheese was ok - an dessert was good. All together an "average+ experience".

Visited A la Ferme on Friday whilst visiting Amsterdam. 4 of us all had a fantastic meal. 3 courses each plus wine, each dish was fab, service was very relaxed and dare i say not very French! Will definitely go back next time in Amsterdam. 2 had the fish special which was a very good Cod dish, 2 had the... More

One of my favourite restaurants continued to proof why I like it. For a casual setting with friends to catch up over a great dinner, the atmosphere is great. The service team is not overly present, but they do attend well to requests. The food they serve is for me the real treat - always fresh and unique items alongside... More

It's amazing how Ben pulled is off. Every time you come home with a story. not only is the food great, there is a real positive energy in the place. It's really a gem and I would recommend this to everyone who loves food but doesn't like stiff venues.

It's a very nice, very relaxed French restaurant. All of the food was delicious, although the cassoulet I had was heart-stoppingly rich (not a complaint, just an observation). The room is elegant and casual and a bit vintage feeling. One important note- the pace when we were there was very leisurely. This isn't an issue per se, but if you... More

This is one of those places where the price/quality ratio is incredible: it's not a low-budget place with menu prices around 40 euros, but what you get for that money is superb. Our group enjoyed a four-course dinner with a variety of nicely adapted French classics, with the vegetarian in the group also very happy with everything that was presented.... More
