Food as art

Fabulous food with inventive presentations. My salad was a nest. My dessert was a Mondrian painting. So much fun.

We ordered the 3 course chef menu. We started with the green pea soup and salad nicoise, then my wife had the sole and I had the lamb's neck. We finished with the cheese platter and the cobbler with peach ice creme. The soup, lamb's neck and cheese platter were my personal favorite. They had a good wine list and... More

Willems is located in the heart of a lovely shopping district surrounded by classic Amsterdam residences. If you're going for dinner, reservations are a must as it is a small restaurant. If the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is perfectly situated to enjoy the intersection with bicycles, trams, pedestrians, and beautiful scenery. The chef is preparing meals right in... More

This was the second time we visited this restaurant and again, we were struck by the genuine and caring service with a smile. At our request the service for desert was speeded up (our dog was home alone) and every request we had was met with a smile and prompt attention. Food is of excellent quality, a bit French Bistro...

This was my second visit. I had the crisp, well prepared salad and the rump steak, beautiful meat perfectly presented. Attentive but restrained service.

Tell your friends as Willems is not to be missed. Starts with a complimentary crostini of whipped cream of tomato and goat cheese topped with fried olives, followed by multigrain baguette slices - not with butter or oil - with cream of fennel! I embarrassed myself and ate it wirh a spoon! A deconstructed veal stew was as pleasing to... More

In Amsterdam only a few days, but we liked Willems so much that we went back on a 2nd evening. The ambiance is very calm. The service professional but also friendly and unstuffy. The food is really good, with lots of little unusual touches - a beautiful fresh green salad was livened up with little bits of pickled cauliflower, a... More

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
