I am a regular guest at the Okura and normally visit the Yamasato restaurant, probably 4 to 5 times per year. Usually I take the monthly special Keizeki menu. My most recent visit was on Monday. I really like this restaurant - the food is excellent, - the dinner of the month always is a superb combination of top class... More

Between shopping and evening concert we went here for lunch and chose the set seasonal menu. What a treat! The successive dishes were a delight in presentation and taste. Around 13:00h the restaurant was fairly full and remained very agreeable: no mobile telephones allowed; ample and attentive staff. A place to return to!

Came in here for lunch on last day of our minimoon after getting married. What can I say, it is an experience in itself let alone the food. We had the very reasonable set menu and a nice bottle of wine that was about 40 euros (they have an extensive list as you can imagine). The staff were exceptionally friendly,... More

Beautiful ! The Michelin star rating is not just about the food, it's about the whole experience in the restaurant, and believe me, it's worth every second in the place. You're welcomed like a Prince, you have traditional Japanese waitresses who look after your table, and the food is aboslutely delicious. Our choice : Shabu-shabu for 2 with Japanese Wagyu... More

Eating at Yamazato is great culinary experience. This is my place to go to whenever, there is something to celebrate or I am ready to pay extra for good food. I have been here several times, and have left the restaurant in an uplifted mood every time. The quality and freshness of the food is simply outstanding. The service is... More

I don't eat sashimi for as i don't trust the quality of fish in 99% of Japanese restaurants but I figured in a Michelin star restaurant i can have it and... More

We visited Amsterdam for our honeymoon and decided we wanted to eat in very special restaurants, so chose Yamazato. We were not disappointed. We were greeted very warmly and drinks were served promptly. The waitresses were very attentive and topped up our wine and water glasses regularly. We chose to eat the set menu. At €50 each we felt this... More

...in an average sort of way, Yamazato does a very good job of reflecting the bland, beige understatement of the original Okura Hotel in Tokyo. At dinner, the sort of Zen-inspired wood-and-tope tones don't exactly radiate a confidence that your culinary experiences will be star-rated, with tables divided from each other by waist-high partitions, large picture-windows that overlook a water...

Dear Mike H, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. We regret that you did not experience the quality in service that we are known for. At the moment the restaurant is indeed completely designed in Sukiya style and it is one of the most traditional Japanese restaurants in Europe. We will be... More

My boyfriend wanted to give me a special treatment and he decided to reserve a table on line, he was already once there before. Yamazato was the first traditional Japanese restaurant in Europe with a Michelin star. The kitchen brigade only speaks Japanese. We order the special October menu from the Chef and I did not realized that there were... More
