My second visit this year. I can only say that the food is perfect, the prices very reasonable and that Daan and his colleagues know how to deliver a top notch yet relaxed dining experience. I had the Mackerel starter, beautifully presented and very delicious, followed by the veal cheek, moist, well cooked and with a stunning accompaniment of loveliness,... More

The evening there was perfect. Very cosy ambiance, amazing food and lovely personnel. The wine pairing was great and I highly recommend the desert with the pistachio cake and praline mousse!

We always have large work events at Thijs, and I always have a great time. The food is delicious, the staff is very helpful, and the atmosphere is good as well. They handle large group service very well!

We were here at our first night in Amsterdam and this was a good start! I got extra big portions because I was extra hungry:-) Everything melted in our mouths, the veal cheak was the best.

My wife and I had been out walking in Amsterdam and I spotted the sign for the restaurant, and reviewed the menu. I then put it on the list of places to visit.

This is now a hotel restaurant, though it apparently used to be separate, and has a street entrance as well as a hotel entrance. We ate there on a quiet early evening and had excellent service from our very friendly waitress (though we did feel a little sorry for her, as she kept getting waylaid by an Australian couple near...

Hotel restaurants are not normally known for great food and service however this is the exception. Menu and wine list excellent. Prices reasonable. Atmosphere excellent as was the service from Restaurant Manager Daaniel and his staff. Loved the food and presentation. cant wait to go back...well done Daaniel, Chef and staff.

We are not 'fancy restaurant' people. We've dined at nice restaurants, but we prefer to just eat casually. We were staying at the hotel above the restaurant when we decided to try this 'fancy restaurant'. WOW! It was spectacular. The service was great, the food spectacular and the wines (we opted to not go for straight pairings, but wine based... More
