My wife and I decided to have a short city break to Amsterdam and as we had enjoyed the Breitner so much last time we visited it we went back. The ambience is old fashioned charm and it does that very well, with a modern look at food. Again the service, quality of the food and all round experience was... More

During a visit to Amsterdam I wanted a special restaurant to take my wife on her birthday. After some research I chose Breitner and I was not disappointed. We were greeted and seated upon arrival. The restaurant has an elegant charm and beautiful views over the Amstel River. We enjoyed three courses of excellently prepared and presented fresh food. The... More

Right by the Amstel near Waterlooplein, Breitner is a great example of excellent dining in a city with so much choice it can be hard to differentiate one place from another. With only a few hours notice, I needed to double my reservation to 22 people, and after a slightly long pause, the staff graciously found a way. A set... More

My friend and I recently dined at Breitner on a chance; we saw it while passing by on the street. The restaurant was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night (which is usually a bad sign!) but we took our chances. It is elegantly designed with food and service to match. We felt well cared for and they did a good... More

The essence in the joy of food Preparation and Presentation Is safely in the hands of chef Remco Tensen of Breitner in Amsterdam. A wide range of flavors satisfy a diner's tastebuds long after the final Dish is served. Go here now!

We did not pick this restaurant but the hotel helped us booked this place. l am not impressed ~ The bread looked perfect but it was not warm which was the first disappointment. We shared an appetitiser which has interesting texture. My main course is the vegetarian course and my husband had the duck. The vegetarian main was executed well... More

All four of my party opted for the 4 course menu. we also received an appetiser and petit fours. All the food was exceptional, and the waiting staff were attentive but not... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner here on our last night in Amsterdam. We reserved our table in advance and was greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbles whilst we looked through the menu. Beautiful white linen table cloths overlooking the canals and opera house. The Tasting Menu was available in 3 or 4 courses at a very reasonable price... More
