An amazing discovery

This restaurant is a bit hidden between the towers of the South Axis, but is definitely worth the trip. What an amazing experience. Decor, staff, menu, wines: all were more than excellent. Warmly recommended!

The last night of a gruelling business trip, four of us were looking for a splurge dinner to balance the quick pit stops of the previous few nights. The desk at the Crowne Plaza recommended this and it was just 100m from the hotel, a real advantage with Amsterdam weather. We had high expectations but the service and cuisine exceeded... More

We have been here several times during the last years. It is consistently on a high culinary level (should have had already a Michelin star for several years; we do not understand their policy!). Fortunately they have been voted "Best Vegitable Restaurant 2014 in the Benelux" and the Gault Millau values it with 16 points, which is - we think... More

Excellent restaurant on the "Zuid As" of Amsterdam. Away from the busy lunch places stacked up with bankers. If you can, let the chef suprise you. You won't regret.

Bolenius is an experience. Having traveled extensively, i can honestly say that this is the finest eating experience i have ever had. The owner and his staff are attentive to every detail, from taking your jacket as you enter, the lighting, acknowledging the specific dietary requirements of a member of our party, selecting the perfect wine, delivering and explaining each...

Far away from the bustle of tourist attractions, yet still almost in the central city of Amsterdam (AMS-Zuid, pleasant, urban vibe) you'll find an exciting combination of fine cuisine, excellent wines and an extraordinary interior. The service is young and sophisticated and knows exactly when the proper time to loosen up the atmosphere is. The food is of a consistent... More

reservations highly recommended, I had the three course tasting menu. Request the wine pairing it is well worth it, and you will likely try some wines you are not familiar with. The owner was the sommelier the night I was there and gave a good explanation of why he picked the wine to accompany each dish. This is small plates... More

This was more than a meal, it was an experience. Great food, great wine, great service and a great atmosphere. I just want to take family and friend there to share the experience. I am now looking for any excuse to get back to Amsterdam.

I have just had a sensational evening at Bolenius. The owners are fabulous people and enjoy every part of making our evening extra special - the food was out of this world and the best dining experience I have ever had in Amsterdam after 25 years or travelling to this buzzing city, it really should be a must for people...

Wow, what a way to end our trip. Trip Advisor was right! Interesting preparation and beautiful presentation of everything we had. My hubby had the duck and I had the sole. Both were delicious and elegantly presented. The service was the best we've ever had. Will definitely come back if we ever get the chance.
