Very refined dining in lovely setting

All restaurants in the Okura Hotel Amsterdam have become classic options in a city with a high turnaround of restaurants. Quality and good service (although this time we did have to ask for the menu´s after 20 minutes of being seated). Pricey, but excellent

By far the best sushi. Lots and lots of sushibars in Amsterdam, there is only one nr 1. It is still yamazato at okura. The best rice with the best fresh fish. They still have the blue fin. Japanese dishes are of a great quality too. 1-michelin star. Staff sometimes a bit difficult with their english japanese dialect. Most of... More

The Yamazato restaurant has recently been redecorated, so a good opportunity to pay them a visit again. It has always been one of our favorites, but the redecoration was very good. The sushi bar is highly recommend with a wooden bar out of one piece specifically ordered from Japan. The food is exquisite, the serve is excellent and the food... More

Out lunch at the Yamazato restaurant was amazing from start till finnish. The genuine Japanese decor and staff make you feel as though you have traveled to Japan. The beautyful Japanese garden next to the restaurant only reinforces that feeling. We had a sparkling sake as aperitive: a surprisingly nice drink (I am not a big sake fan). The set... More

The restaurant "lost" the reservation on my anniversary, a few days later apologised after I quizzed them and offered an aperitif to make up for it.

We came to Yamazato three days after their re-opening andnoted with relief that the refurbishment had not affected the atmosphere nor the generous and warm welcome extended by the staff. Yes, it all looks new and bright, but a "spot the difference" would be hard. Anyway, authentic ambiance is only one part of eating at Yamazato, their food is the... More

It's all about the sushi here and it's very good indeed. It's a case of you pay for what you get, it is expensive. The menu has a fantastic selection to chose from. I'm a fan of this place in general. It's in the hotel Ocura which also has another excellent Teppanyaki restaurant.
