Good tasting menu but only if you like surprises

Picked this as our last meal in Amsterdam to cap off the 4 night stay. All you have to do is pick from a 4, 5 or 6 course meal and tell them of any allergies or preferences. Each course was indeed a delightful surprise. For a 5 course meal, glass of wine and coffee, we spent a little over... read more

My family and I got the 5-course meal and was pleasantly surprised. Food tasted amazing and service was on point. Definitely on my list of recommendations.

The experience was wonderful. I must admit that my family and I were a bit concerned when we learned that the menu was going to be a surprise. With my wife's gluten intolerance, my daughter's being a vegetarian, and my being a diabetic, I didn't think this place could handle all of our particular needs. I was delighted to be... More

But the way of cooking , really not impress me .After ams, I have went to Paris , some local bistros make me feel... More

We loved the set courses. My husband chose six and I chose 5. We are hard pressed to pick which we liked best. They were all wonderful blends of flavors and textures. The service was professional and friendly. Our waitress took great pride in matching half glasses of wine to go with each course. It was our best meal in... More

The food here was truly artistic and a real taste sensation. Beautifully presented and explained by the friendly waitresses. Love the element of surprise dining. Highly recommended.

This restaurant offers a great culinary experience. Every meal is a discovery and there is an evolution in the textures and taste of the meals. The wine match was also excellent! Truly a place not to miss!

We had the impression that a lot of vegetables, meat and all that used in making the food is wasted in that kitchen. The waitress briefs you about the food you are just being served so that I guess you develop good feelings before eating it. After all that lesson one feels numskull for not getting the taste of whatever... More

Visited Johannes with some work colleagues and we were extremely happy about our dinner. They serve a fixed menu and you can decide whether you want 4, 5 or 6 dishes with or without wine pairing. We thought this was a very interesting proposition as it took us through a culinary experience and made us try dishes we would not... More
