Good restaurant, not exceptional.

I was at Blauw with afriwnd on a wednesday evening, and I liked it. When I read the reviews I had the impression that the restaurant was exceptional, and that's why I felt a little disappointed. The place is trendy, full ( reservation is needed), but tables were too close one to each other and it... read more

Very good service and very yummy food. Try the dish for 2 and go for the meaty option, as they were amazing while the vegetarian dishes were way less tasty in comparison.

My girlfriend and I chose to visit Blauw on the first night we arrived in Amsterdam. We booked online around week in advance to ensure a table as reviews online tipped us off that it gets quite busy. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and given the option of two seating positions. This being out first visit... More

We love Asian food, but this was our first Indonesian food experience. We had the meat rijsttafel and could explore various tastes to our palate, some of them well-known (veggies with peanut butter sauce, soja sauce dishes) and some mind-blowing (such as goat meat in a hot and tasty sauce). The ingredients and cooking were of high standard, but we've... More

Could not recommend this place more highly. Very friendly staff, incredibly delicious rijsttafel, exactly the kind of place you can take close friends, business associates, and various visitors to town when they ask you what "Dutch food" is. Food is pricey but 100% worth it.

Some friends and I dined at blauw in July 2015 and we loved it. This was my third visit to the restaurant and as in the past the food was fantastic and the staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

Although pricey, the food is great! As an Indonesian, I approve of the taste! If you love Asian food in general, you'll love their food. Try their rendang and gulai kambing.

Interesting food, very flavoursome. We had goat, pork belly, cod for main courses. Each had a unique flavour and was delicious. They serve heaps of side dishes and rice so meal was very filling. Good wine list. Enjoyable evening.

The 17 dishes of the Risstaffel were truly stunning. Great Indonesian flavours, good service and a range to suit all tastes. Wasn't looking forward to the goat kebabs but they were fantastic, loved the fish curry and the marinated vegetables! Location is a bit out of the old town but tram line 2 from Centraal station or Dam Square and... More

First off the style of food isn't Tony taste but my wife loved it, I only had the chicken satay and the prawns but little else, my wife on the other hand had the 'Rice Table'. This was a meal of seventeen small plates that covered the whole range of Indonesian foods, it looked way too much and in the... More
