Dear guest, you're right: the limited menu enables us to keep the standard high. Together with the specials of the day also our regular guests have enough to choose of. And yes, please come back if you're in Amsterdam again!! Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

Booked a table here for a staff get together. Their mixed starter was unique and absolutely delicious. Mains and deserts were also excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

Dear guest, you're referring to our so called "Bites platter" ( a 3 layer stand with a selection of starters & fingerfood). It indeed is a "party" to start with! I'm very glad you liked the overall experience in our restaurant. Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

I was walking around Amsterdam - my first evening after arriving from the US and wandered into Vlaming -- very glad that I did. First of all, the staff was very welcoming. I didn't have a reservation, but at 7:30pm, I was just early enough (and there was only me) - for it not to be a problem. Although around... More

Dear guest, I checked with the chef concerning the duck. The meat is in the sous vide for 3 hours at a temperature of 55 degrees C and befor serving shortly fried in the frying-pan. Maybe somewhere in the process the temperature became a little too high? But I'm glad you liked it anyway. And the recipe of th StickyToffee... More

Great food best tuna steak I have had. The waitress did forget our appetizer but they made up for it giving us all a very good free dessert. Great atmosphere a must do for anyone visiting Amsterdam!!!

Dear guest, I hope you will come back again another time: the bites platter you missed is really a "party" to start with!! I'm happy you liked the tuna, because we had to change from Yellow Fin to Albacore. The Albacore is not threatend by dying out. Missing (sorry again) the starter "created" room for the famous Sticky Toffee Pie.... More

I've been to about 10 dinner spots in Amsterdam over 3 visits and this is the best I've experienced. Staff were uniformly very good - discretely attentive, informative, friendly but not too. Food was very tasty and well-presented; dishes were imaginative; ingredients were varied and fresh. The chef seemed interested in feedback (yes, I'd like the ST recipe); intimate setting.... More

Dear guest, I'm not sure if you left your emailaddress and received the recipe allready. If not please send me a mail and I'll reply. I hope you did not hurt your head too much: indeed the entrance is quite low. Apparently people were shorter when the warehouse was build somewher in 1612!! Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday last week. We didn't book ahead (which had it not been a Thursday would have been a very bad idea). The initial impression from the outside isn't great and at first we were not sure if we would go in, but I am very glad we did. The lack of a fancy... More

Dear guest, sorry you had to wait that long for your starter. I don't remember the reason for that, but most probably the kitchen received a lot of tickets in one time?! Indeed we do not pretend to be at a Michelin level. I think that if we would pursue that it will be at the expense of the loose... More
