We booked for Friday night about a week before we went to Amsterdam for the weekend based mainly on reviews on here. And the four of us are really glad we did. The quality of food was outstanding, the service great, even though it was full. Would recommend to anyone, but make sure you book ahead a few days if... More

Having lived in Amsterdam for years, the area where this restaurant is is my favorite to dine out - not quite in the center, but still super nice, not too busy, and right next to the Vondelpark. Pros Food is really authentic to my taste. If you ask spicy, they will manage to make it spicy enough (I am Mexican,... More

The rijsttalfel was more than enough for 2 people, loved the the differing textures and flavours of each dish. What really impressed me was their highly detailed menu which catered for people with allergies - they were very accommodating with my nuts allergy and made sure I was able to try every dish (even Satay!). Overall, excellent experience.

The rule in this restaurant is that if you order a 'rijstafel', but less number of rijstafels than the number of persons in your group, you are penalized in your bill, by an extra Eur 10 per person !!!! This ‘fine’ remains even if you actually ordered OTHER food in addition to the rijstafels! (Not that this rule was fair,... More

The place comes highly recommended, and the food did not disappoint-it was great, and our waiter made a great recommendation...but on the down side, the wine list was really poor in our view, and not cheap.

A Delicious Indonesian Food. This was our second visit and each time the food has been wonderful. We had the set menu that turned out to be too much food, but each dish was delicious. The combinations are very creative and a wonderful Indonesian food experience. The service was friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning on our next... More

After reading all the reviews and wishing to sample the famous ristafel we decided to give the Blauw a try. The food was awful. Avoid at all costs.

We went to this restaurant with a group of 6 people, and ordered their 'signature dish' - the rijsttafel. Since we wanted to taste some more dishes, we ordered rijsttafel for 4 persons, and more dishes for EUR 100, in addition to drinks. The waitress explained us that if we order less rijsttafels that the number of guests, a supplement... More

We came here for a set-menu Boxing Day dinner. As it was a Christmas special, we missed out on the famous rice-table, but I really don't feel like we missed out. The food we were served was absolutely delicious. Everything was fresh and the flavours were fantastic. We had duck spring roll, sea bass, lobster, coconut soup, beef curry, satay... More
