I frequently come to this place as it is very good quality, perfect for a date, to meet with friends or for business dinners. The owners are very knowledgable about wine matching the food perfectly and the service is first class whilst the prices are quite moderate compared to a similar quality in the centre. Perfect to get to by... More

Amazing experience in a warm setting. The owner and staff are professional and know what they are doing. Great food, gluten free and paired with nice wines! Definitely recommending a visit as soon as possible.

Business dinner - had some drinks and placed the food order at 7:30pm. After multiple checks with server, the food finally arrived at 9:30pm. There were guests at 2 tables only - they weren't busy serving others. Everyone was very happy with their food - tasty and well-prepared, Fish servings were a bit small, especially for the price. Knowledgeable and... More

With a classic touch and a relaxing atmosphere I had an excellent experience visiting one of my now favorite restaurant in Amsterdam, La Vina. The staff have excellent knowledge of every part of a meal, and are always making sure everything is for your satisfaction. For having to spend a romantic dinner for two this place is suited for both... More

French expat in Amsterdam I quickly discovered how full the city is with "Brown/Eet/Grand Cafés" that offer a wide range of easy meals with no culinary suprise. Also how, in much of Amsterdam, having dinner in a restaurant was for me downright expensive. Until I went to La Vina, where I regularly experience the best price/quality dinner. The Chef reinvents... More

We live near La Vina and go there quite often. It's lovely for a romantic date, dinner with friends or a good glass of wine and nibbles. The service is very good, the staff always have good recommendations for food and wine. The atmosphere is great. Oh, and the chocolate fondant is to die for - don't miss it!!

We have had our yearly departmental lunch in La Vina Experience this week and it was great in every way. The pre-organisation was very efficient, Jacqueline (the owner) responsive, attentive and friendly, and professional which is a rarity in this business! All my colleagues really liked the four course menu, the wines, the treats. We will certainly go back there.... More

Last week I had drinks and diner with 13 colleges. Everything was good. Drinks on the terras, and diner was served in a cosy private room in the basement ( wine cellar). The owners and the staff were warm, the food was just fine. Definitely go back one time soon.
