Best Food in Amsterdam for a nice price too

Dont eat to much, the best is yet to come. The risotto ball are something superb. We ordered the tuna... read more

Dear guest from Lisboa, thank you for your kind comments. The sauce you mention is a so called sateh sauce, based on peanut butter and originally from the Indonesian kitchen. When I read what you have been eating and drinking with us for just € 30 each, than I hope the bill was right :-) Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

Like other reviews already said- it is a great place to go to! The service, food and atmosphere is so complete. I really like the size of the Vlaming Restaurant only about 8 tables. It is such a family and friends place that you feel so welcome and well taken care of. And the ``Sticky Toffe pie`` is really a... More

we went there during our stay in Amsterdam and we had the pumpkin soup, the fish salad,the beef steak with mushroom sauce and the tuna. Everything was really delicious.

What a lovely little place, everything was just perfect! Fantastic finale to our date yesterday in the Jordaan area, my husband and I ordered the steak and the classic dessert everyone's here been raving about "the Sticky Toffee pie" and they exceeded our expectation. Atmosphere-wise, just the kind of place we like, cozy and unpretentious, reflected on the food presentation,... More

Warm welcoming staff, short menu but complete. We took a tasting entries with different plates and fish as main dishes. Everything was very well cocked, wine was fine. The waiter didn't show me the bottle that he brought already opened!! The dessert was too sweet.

Dear visitor, if you had our "world famous" (in Amsterdam anyway) Sticky Toffee Pie as a dessert than indeed it can happen that someone finds it quite sweet :-) I'll instruct the staff again how they have to present a bottle of wine: thank you for your remark.

Our first dinner in Amsterdam, so glad we found Vlaming eten & drinken. The hot, thick tomato soup was just what I needed in my belly after the cool night air, my steak was tender and perfectly cooked.

This is a very nice and cosy place, somewhat stylish but unpretentious, with very pleasant staff and absolutely delicious food! I particularly recommend the tuna steak with sesame sauce - it's cooked to perfection and the sauce is fantastic. The pork tenderloin skewer is also very good and comes with an amazing sort of barbecue sauce - dark, dense, sweet... More

After reading reviews of this restaurant and Vlamings Brasserie, we chose this restaurant for dinner. It was not as convenient to get to as the other restaurant (which, according to the owner, caters primarily to a business crowd) but we wanted to experience what the locals enjoy. Just like other reviewers pointed out, we were warmly greeted and treated like... More
