In the new business district of Amsterdam, Bolenius is a place offering a nicely creative cuisine and very professional service. We had the 5 courses tasting menu, a great experience including homegrown vegetables and fine seafood recipes. Highly recommended if you happen to be nearby.

This minimalistic yet stylish restaurant is somehow unexpectedly located amid high-rise offices and appartmentbuildings yet once inside you'll feel welcome and at ease. The open kitchen, beautiful walk-in-wine-closet, clean design and monochrome color scheme provide a cosmopolitan atmosphere where as the skillful and alert staff makes shure you will enjoy a wonderful meal. Dishes are creative, without exception beautifully plated... More

Amazing restaurant experience-starting from the serene deco to the remarkable service and the food which was a culinary adventure in itself. We chose the set menu for 69 euro per person (excluding drinks) and we were surprised and delighted with every dish. Makes sure to have coffee/tea in the end-it is worth in itself the visit to the restaurant.

Of course the location is not romantic, but within the business area you can enjoy also architecture if you have an open minded! Then, inside, the place this is modern, a little scandinavian... The food itself is amazing. Like a 2 stars michelin in Paris but much more friendly!! The cooking is perfect. There is a Chief here!!! The wine... More

Have you ever been in restaurants many times? Let's say, at least twice a month for 2 years, on average. Probably not. Cause it gets boring. Waiters become too familiar, the food looses its creativity. Not for Bolenius however ! Xavier as the master waiter and Luc as the master Chef manage to maintain their restaurant crispy and enjoyable with... More

This restaurant is famous for their vegetables, but certainly offers much more. In fact, they, by their own admittance, are aiming for a Michelin star. By the way they build their menu (3 amuses, excellent and varied courses, fantastic friandises) this may well happen some time. We had been here before, and came back because of the great experience. However,... More

I must say the food, wine and particularly the service was outstanding. However, traveling alone it was more of an experience you would want with a group of people. Everyone was so friendly and the food to die for so for that I would give it a defiantly 5 star.

Bolenius is just 100m from the Crowne Plaza Hotel in South (Zuid) Amsterdam and about 5-10minutes walk from the Zuid tram stop and train station. This is probably perfect for those with a half day (or longer) stopover in Schipol airport too. The restaurant is on the ground floor, and concrete is softened by the lighting and a few minimalist...
