We went to this restaurant during a work trip with a small group. The location is on a quiet street but very close to the city center, and the restaurant atmosphere would be appropriate for either a romantic dinner out or a business meeting. The wait staff was fantastic, friending and attentive without making us feel rushed during the 4... More

Very busy on a wet Friday night in November so book ahead. Good tasty food - not haute cuisine - I chose the vegetarian options. Friendly attentive service. Definitely worth a return visit.

Good cuisine ( mostly locally sourced and/or organic), wonderful staff, beautiful location ( terrace in back is heaven in summer) - this is an absolute favorite and never disappoints. The restaurant is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and we've been coming here for at least 25 years...

When visiting a city for a short time it can be hard to find somewhere that is unique to that city, gives you a good meal, makes you feel at home, offers local food and does this all for a reasonable price. Hemelse Modder is that restaurant in Amsterdam. Like other reviewers, we had most of our food from the... More

Excellent service by friendly and happy waiter. A guy very in tune with his customers and wanting to please. He delivered a meal that was delicious and attractive and thanks to the whole team we left having had a really happy experience. Well done to this bustling restaurant for doing what restaurants should do.....send out happy customers!

A better than average experience. They are celebrating their 30th year with a special menu. Price was about £45 per head including wine. Not cheap but good quality food. Seemed to be a lot of locals in there which is a good sign. A bit off the beaten track and not on a main tourist street. Wee worth hunting out... More

The landlord in the apartment we were staying in recommended this restaurant. You will definitely need to book but just give them a ring as they speak perfect English so making the booking was effortless. The staff are helpful and friendly and the decor and atmosphere is plain but elegant. They put us at a nice table facing Oude Waal... More

After reading some good reviews, we decided dine there with four people. The location is excellent in the hart of Old Amsterdam and there is ample room. As the restaurant was celebrating their 30th anniversary, we all went for the 4 course jubileum dinner. It seems that they were understaffed because it took us 3 hours to complete our dinner....
