We really enjoyed this tiny resteraunt. The one friendly and efficient waitress did a great job of keeping everyone happy. We had the veal and it was delicious with a beautiful apricot sauce. Even though they advertise a set fee for three courses they are happy to allow people to as few course they want.

Did not like the service, we had a negative experience with an extremely rude waiter who tried to move us to a worse location as she assumed we were not going to have dinner. I went for dinner there a couple of times before, did not particularly like food nor drinks and, again, the service.

We went to this restaurant for my husbands birthday and what a choice. The food was absolutely delicious. They have a set menu of 3 courses for 25 euro which is great value for money, especially in Amsterdam. The restaurant is down some steep steps in a basement and has a lovely cosy atmosphere and quite romantic.The young girl serving... More

I visited this restaurant twice during my recent stay in Amsterdam - once for dinner, and once just to enjoy a few beers in the sun while shopping. Delicious food, with a pretty eclectic menu to choose from (Scottish venison?) My beer was a little bit flat, but it was also pretty cheap so I got over it. I'd recommend... More

We had struisvogel's menu, which costs 25 euro. Even the bread they serve is really delicious. For a starter we both had a wild pheasant rillettes, that was incredible. For a main course we both had a venison steak with red wine butter as a sauce. It was the most tender steak I ever had in my life. For a... More

We ate here during a recent stay in Amsterdam and were more than a little underwhelmed. It was packed, although it is a small restaurant. We were left with a menu for 40 minutes and very nearly walked out; in hindsight we wished we had. When food arrived it was okay and nothing more. Nothing was unpleasant or badly cooked,... More

Our friends recommended this restaurant to us. We ended up going there three times: twice for dinner and once for lunch. It's very easy to miss this place if you don't know about it. The staff is very friendly and professional. The 25 euros menu is a great value. Food is delicious. They use organic ingredients. It's better to make... More

We picked this restaurant based on the reviews and were not disappointed. It was busy so we were glad our hotel had booked us a table. The 25 euro menu is excellent value for money. It's quite a small choice so I ended up having the super food salad to start as I don't eat meat and the salmon had... More
