A friend and I turned up on the off chance of getting a table for the early bird deal at 18.00 We were lucky to be able to try the set menu. The food was excellent and although there was no choice the three courses were all superb and both the white and red house wines were super. Although we... More

We dined at the d'Vijff Vliegen on 20th April. It was definitely one of the best meals we've had. The chef's choice menu comes with five, six or seven courses - we went for five, which was plenty. Matching wine is served with each course. It's expensive but good value compared with dining off the a la carte and ordering... More

We visited D Vijff for the second time when we returned to Amsterdam. We enjoyed our first visit and had been looking forward to a return trip to Amsterdam and dining here. This was a hangout for Rembrandt with decorations from his era. The menu is limited, offering a 3 course meal with a couple of selections for each course,... More

We reserved a table in person half a week before we planned to eat at Restaurant d'Vijff Vlieghen and were promised a nice table. When we arrived, we were given only a small end table, very obviously squeezed in between two tables. We were flabbergasted and asked if that is what you get when you reserve. One of the waitresses... More

Dear Tripadvisor member, Thank you for posting a review. I am sad to read you were unhappy and left the restaurant, this does hurt my feelings. We never make fun of our guests. You assumed that the table you sat on was a "very obviously" squeezed in table as you mention This is not true, see picture 106 on tripadvisor... More

Some years ago I took my wife and son here during a visit to Amsterdam, and retained good memories of the place. I booked a table here by personally visiting the restaurant the day before, and was overcome by the pleasant welcome by a lady of middle age. We sat upstairs in a small dining room of great ambiance.

We were pleased to walk into this restaurant and get a table for an hours time. The place has great atmosphere and the service was very good.

My dad and I found this place by chance and came in around six pm looking for a table. The minute you step in you immediately sense it's a bit special. It's the type of old school restaurant in which you sit down and really savor each course. Make sure you arrive with plenty of time, because you'll want to... More
