If I had the money I would probably eat here every day. Especially the season menu is a fantastic parade of subtle, tasteful and exquisite dishes. This is by far the best Japanese restaurant in town and they've been awarded a Michelin star since 2002. Unfortunately all this comes with a price... But by God it is more than worth... More

Ended up having 7 plates from the menu and they were all very good. Not sure if all of them were "michelin" quality but they were definitely enjoyable. Expensive but the setting and hotel are cool and the service is great.

We had a seasonal menu here. It was amazing, both in service as in quality of food. At the end we thought we had been in there for one hour, but it turned out to be two hours. It was so good we did not even realize. Definitely coming back !!!

We had lunch here and the last time we were at Yamazato was 8 years ago. Excellent service, could not be better. Also the dishes were close to perfection. The restaurant is part of the Okura Hotel, this setting completes it all.

Fancy Japanese. Only tried sushi. There are more extensive,expensive, exotic menu items to be tried next time. Ambiance is minimalist Japanese and peaceful. Service prompt by kimonoed waitresses. Wine list extensive and expensive. Sushi was fresh and tasty,a bit too much rice. Dessert was excellent. Fruit and ice cream. A good place to have a quiet meal. Try to sit... More

I had Tori Kaiseki menu, it was very nice. High quality of fish. The beef of the main dish was so tender. The rice was so good as I couldn't stop eating...

I tried the seasonal menu, it was just great. Best quality of Sashimi I had outside Japan. I really love the atmosphere which is really gorgeous and feels authentic Japanese. The service is also great and nearly the whole stuff is Japanese which helps with the authentic flair. I`ll definitely visit again!

Had the chef recommendation menu. While overall the dishes are creative and detailed (in particular, their sashimi dish that requires me to use a small hammer to smash the ice cube to get the lobster sashimi inside!), not really a Michelin 1 star quality I think - eg the tofu starter is too bland, the thinly sliced beef is overlooked,...

From my experience visiting many famous sushi restaurants around the world, the quality of the fish here could be one of the best in Europe and even better than some sushi bars In Japan. The reason why I didn't gave this restaurant a 5 star rating is because there is too much rice in the sushi which makes it hard... More

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
