Good food, nice surroundings, but some slow service

We were a group of six on a business trip. The is a quirky place as the name suggests. We were brought through several rooms before we got to our table, so there is a great atmosphere and you get to experience all of it on the way to the table. The settings are original old and are spectacular... read more

We stumbled onto this hidden jewel by mistake and are thankful for it. Traditional, impressively decorated, extraordinary food. I´d recommend asking for different plates and sharing so everyone can try, and don't forget the cheese platter, that is an experience just on its own. Enjoy! (It only serves dinner)

From the outside I liked the look of this restaurant, and to be fair it was pleasant enough inside: old-world wood clad walls covered with paintings. There are nicely set out tables with linen table cloths and napkins. We ordered an aperitif: kir (white wine with 'crème de cassis') and on reflection I think that I ought to have sent... More

There is a surprise discovery and not easy to find the entrance but the restaurant is great, in everything. It is not cheap and they don't have wifi either )))) you need just to enjoy the food and the company. Must visit.

Well, we really expected much more from such a highly rated establishment. Now looking at the photos online, it looks like we were put in the dungeon instead of one of the attractive rooms. It was 7:30 and not very busy, we should have had a better location. The photos of the food looks nothing like what we were served... More

Very good Dutch food, the croquet was definitely the best I had in Amsterdam. The restaurant felt a bit touristy though with waiters giving tours of the place and we were seated uncomfortably close to other diners but the service was great from our waiter which helped to improve the overall experience.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
