We read about this place on trip advisor and decided to give it a go when we went for a short city break in beautiful Amsterdam. We walked from pretty much the very heart of the centre and it was a bit of a walk, but it was worth it! Also the walk is very nice especially the area called... More

We enjoyed this small, quality restaurant. There are only about 6 tables, so make sure to have reservation and copy of confirmation with you. Frans was not there when we arrived, but we were finally welcomed in after showing the email he sent back to us to be there at 8:30. Even though that's early to eat in Europe, they... More

My wife and I booked a table at Vlaming Eten and Drinken after reading the reviews from trip advisor, and being rated number 1 in Amsterdam. 10 days before we were due to arrive in Amsterdam we sent off our request for a table, and received a prompt and friendly reply. The restaurant was in a beautiful part of the... More

Dear visitor from Southend-on-sea, the steak you're refering to is Premium beef from Black Angus from Creekstone USA, corn-fed, NHTC, USDA certified and humane animal handled: that's what you taste :-)) Most probably you ordered the Pinotage from Simonsig Stellenbosch SA: beautiful wine which matches perfectly with the meat. Thank you for writing this very friendly comments!! Best regards, Frans... More

There's a dutch word that's hard to translate but broadly means 'cosy' but really means so much more. The word is "gezellig' and if ever there was a restaurant for which this word was appropriate this place is it. I arrange this dinner for me and 10 work colleagues, many of whom had never been to Amsterdam. It would have... More

Dear guest from UK, the starter you mention is our "Bites Platter" which is standard on the menu of our other restaurant "brasserie Vlaming", but for groups like yours we bring it over: a real "party" to start the dinner with!! And it helps to make it "gezellig" :-)) Next to the steak of Black Angus you mentioned there was... More

You don't expect the owner's dog to be sitting on a barstool when you enter this place, but this is likely, considering it's cozy feel and neighborhood atmosphere. Josephine the dog was present and accounted for. The meal was great from the soup, to the steak (oh yeah!) to the sticky toffee pie. If you're looking for fancy decor, New... More

Dear guest from Greenville, our small dog you met is a so-called "Chiweenie". In USA an official new designer race: a cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund.

Dear visitor from Bath, indeed the seat (number 20) in the corner of the bar is also my favourite spot in our "eetcafé"!! The food tastes there the same as when sitting at a table :-)) I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and maybe till another time. Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

We went to this restaurant after visiting another place owned by the same person in Amsterdam. I had a three course meal, beers, wine, aperitifs and it was very good food, good service and the restaurant was cozy and suited my needs very well.

Simple small restaurant wondered if this would live upto a fab review as read on trip advisor, well simply yes it did possibly the best steak we had ever had, the key to their success is that the chef who owns the business is in control of the quality of food, his mother, and a small team of dedicated staff...

Dear lady from Cardiff, you're right: it's better to make a reservation in advange. Especially in the weekends the limited seats we have are all booked most of the time. But like you, walk ins can be lucky when other visitors left early already. Quite some people even have their dinner at the bar: tastes the same :-)) The hamburger... More

What a great find - really pleased we listened to the reviews on here and made a booking at the restaurant. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming.
