Unusual and tantaling

The place is warm and, how dutch say, gezellig. We had a very nice meal choosing the dishes of the day, suggested by the really nice waiter. They were unusual for our foreign taste, but really good and tasty. A sure bet, and a place to come back to.

We had lunch at Moes last week after visiting the exhibition at De Appel. We were surprised by the variety of lunch items available (which can be a challenge in Amsterdam sometimes). My wife ordered the risotto (excellent) and I had the soup of the day (sweet potato) and a smoked mackerel sandwich, both great as well. The staff is... More

We read about Moes on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. It is a casual eatery, reasonably priced. The food is fresh and tasty and the service excellent. It was perfect for the light dinner that we desired.

This is a genuinely friendly restaurant, stylishly bohemian but most important of course, great food, wine and service.

We came across Moe's by accident and I'm glad we did. The service and atmosphere were fantastic and the food was the best we ate during our stay in Amsterdam. Reasonably priced too. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a fab venue - under the museum by the water a short walk from the station and Dam Sq, food was great - fresh, organic and staff brilliant. Not quick because it was fresh but not slow - an acceptable time for excellent food. It is a shame that it's not on the main thoroughfare, but defo worth... More

Realised that this well reviewed restaurant was just 2 minutes walk from our hotel. We were a little concerned about the tatty street entrance but our fears were quickly allayed by the smarter interior and the bright and friendly waitress. The service was excellent and the food very good. Everything was also reasonably priced too. Perfect.

We are here on our recent holiday. The food is good and the food combinations by the chef are interesting. I was vegetarian that day and did not want to eat risotto and the chef made me a special pasta which was incredible !

Very trendy, very friendly, very relaxed. On request, they even made a special dish, which wasn't not on the menu. Would definitely visit again.
