Will be back!

A smell gem in this lovely neighborhood. The food was excellent as well as the service. I had the Foie gras as a starter, highly recommend, and the Rib – eye for my main course. Will be back when I am in Amsterdam again. I am sure it is also lovely to eat outside when the sun is shining.

I stopped here for a quick dinner before going out. Some more time would have been nice. The service was quick and friendly. I had the rib-eye steak and it was properly cooked, medium rare with a nice bearnaise sauce. The fries unfortunately were not great. I had a couple of glasses of a very nice house Barbera recommended by... More

At 3pm my wife and I booked a flight to Amsterdam. At 5pm, sat at the airport - based on Tripadvisor recommendations - we reserved a table at Willems. We arrived a few hours later, greeted warmly by the waiter and shown to our table - right next to the small open kitchen. The ambience was lively and chatty but... More

I popped in here following recommendations from colleagues last week and really glad I did. Quite a small restaurant with 25 covers or so but friendly service and lovely food. I started with Scallops & Black pudding which was wonderful although I don't think the roasted peanuts added anything followed by some lovely, fresh, sweet cod finished of with a... More

A welcoming and friendly restaurant, specialising mostly in Dutch food. The service was good, the wines well chosen and not too expensive and the food nicely cooked and attractively presented. We enjoyed it enough to return a second time in a brief three-day visit.

It was a very good dinner we had here. The food was creative althought not that great in taste. The athmosphere and specially the service made this place worth a visit. Not too long walk away from Hilton.

Great food and a lovely ambience, nice bit of theatre too as the open kitchen allows you to see "the works"! Easy to get to and from the city centre as tram stops right opposite. I had the escargot, bavette steak and a lovely cheeseboard. Only minus point was that they had run out of decaff coffee!!

Had dinner there on Thursday night, has outside dining with comfy chairs, blankets and heaters. Small place so do make reservations a few nights prior to going. Server was excellent. Started with two types of bread and a square piece of polenta with a tiny dollop of mushroom mousse atop. For dinner I had the pumpkin and ricotta ravioli. Has... More
