Food is nice, compared to the competition. Service is also good. I like the restaurant but they close too early. I find this wrong as you spend quite a lot of money it would be nice to be able to continue ordering.

It's better to visit, than to write about this place. We liked very much! Not the first, but you must visite! Take a season menu/offer.

So I went there last night and the food was very nice. I do think the sushi and sashimi were good but not the best I've had but the mains were fantastic. We had the tuna and the fillet mignon and they were both cooked very nicely and the sauces complimented the meat. I think for sushi you could go... More

I've been to Amsterdam a lot but I've always been reluctant to try the sushi as I've been very fortunate to have the best in the world in Japan, NY, & Chicago. I figured with a star it was worth a shot. It didn't disappoint! I was there alone and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and hospitable. Great... More

We ate dinner, the food and the service were so good, they pay attention for every little detail so the food was tasty as beautiful. We had some completely new food for us.

It has been a few years since we were at Yamazato, this time we had lunch with a party of four. The staff are very kind and attentive and make sure your meal is a pleasant experience. We had the lunchmenu, which was definately not the same quality as we've had there in the past. I would say the menu... More

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Yamazato. Two of us had the seasonal lunch, akin to a mini-kaiseki but so reasonable for 50 euro. Okay, it's not the $180 lunch kaiseki at Kikunoi, but the presentation and quality of Yamazato's is a good value indeed. One of us had the sushi plate, and the fourth had the grilled... More

If you love Japanese food go here! We had dinner in a special week with big chefs from Japan. Amazing!!! Although the atmosphere a little cool Japanese is, we enjoyed the whole evening. Classssss

As a resident in the Netherlands I find Yamazato Restaurant definitely the best restaurant for Japanese food in my country. It is also the only Japanese restaurant in the Netherlands that holds a Michelin star. The restaurant is part of the luxurious Okura hotel situated south of the city centre of Amsterdam and has excellent transportation services. You enter the... More
