We have eaten at Thijs before and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and uniqueness of the kitchen. When our familly decided to spend December 26th in Amsterdam, Thijs was the obvious choice. We live in Brussels and our party of 5 comes from HK, NY and LA. We had booked the restaurant a month in advance. While making our... More

Clearly no microwave in sight at this place as the taste was delicious,... More

We're staying at the Dikker and Thijs, and thought we should try the restaurant. It proved to be an excellent choice. Our server was very friendly, and spoke excellent English. She guided us through the small, but diverse menu. My wife settled on the Braised Veal Cheeks, and I had the Beef with grilled Asparagus. Both were delicious. For dessert,... More

We knew to book ahead and had a lovely center seating, which was coincidentally quite romantic. The wait staff are professional and friendly, a nice combination.

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
