Wanted a good value restaurant to take some business guests. The restaurant was busy for mid week but had a great atmosphere. Slightly quirky, split on 2 levels and although not large still felt quite private. Very friendly staff welcomed us. Recommendation was for rice with assorted meat fish and vegetable dishes. We were not disappointed. No starter or desert... More

We went there for Indonesian Rijsttafel on the recommendation of some friends, since we wanted to try "rice table" while visiting Amsterdam. We ordered the meat/fish/vegetable rice table for 2 people. It is a tremendous amount of food, even though it is comprised of small dishes. I thought everything was very tasty except the cod which was shockingly fishy and... More

Blauw was incredible! We ordered the "rice platter" (can't remember what it was called), where we received 17 different small dishes. They were are delicious and packed with flavor. This is a MUST do when you come to Amsterdam.

Definitely One of the 4 best Indonesian restaurant in Amsterdam. Very good choice of white wines (we highly recommande the Sauvignon by Framingham from NZ (50€ but one the best Sauvignon we have drunk, and we are living in Bordeaux). Service could be done with more attention. Nothing to say about the decor, low ceilings.

I ordered from the menu, and my food was truly outstanding. I had invited a friend, a long-time resident of Amsterdam, who has to eat gluten-free. The waiter, when informed of this said he would talk to the kitchen and find out what would work. Instead of the waiter, the chef came and discussed menu options with her, and just... More

Second time by Blauw and I must say the taste and food is very good, however, the restaurant must serve the meal very hot, otherwise after 5 minutes, you are eating cold. And this was again the case. As there is no place to put everything on the hot device you have on the table, you must manage to eat... More

Well, we've only been to two others; but this was a giant step better than the other two. The food was amazingly well seasoned and tasty. We each ordered a rijisttafel. We were both hungry and ate every bite. We left satisfyingly full but not stuffed. Only con - some of the hot dishes arrived at more of a lukewarm... More

We had heard great things about Restaurant Blauw and we were not disappointed! Make sure you order the 'rijsttafels' so you get to sample everything. We (2 people) ordered the meat, fish and veg one and the fish and shrimp one and were presented with about 22 dishes - needless to say we were glad we did not order starters... More
