As the name says, it is heavenly!

We had a seven o'clock reservation on a Monday, and when we arrived, there was plenty of room, as the two rooms are spacious. We got one of the best tables by the window. By 8:00, it was completely full - on a Monday! The service was so friendly and warm. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing with... read more

We had a business dinner at Hemelse Modder yesterday and really enjoyed the high quality food, excellent wine and friendly atmosphere. The accoustics are not great, so when the restaurant is full, it can get quite noisy. I will certainly recommed this restaurant.

Not a physically fancy place yet the food & the service are both solid. Good concept serving straight forward food with a Dutch feeling. Set menu in 3 or 4 courses for €35/40 respectively. Open 7 days a week. Recommended

I went twice in 10 days and I had the good fortune to experience two different menu. Both times I was very satisfied. Particularly delicious the combination of fish with sour croutes. The service is exceptionally nice, above the average Dutch standard. The ambiance and location very beautiful. One suggestion: dress warmly as the temperature of the room is somehow... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is a bit more "relaxed" than an average gastronomic restaurant. The food served is tastefull, the waiters are very friendly and helpful.

A warm and friendly restaurant, with an informal and cosmopolitan clientele. The Dutch goose croquettes (starter) were to die for; the fish mains were perfectly cooked, and the deserts sublime. We also sampled the Dutch cheeses, which were from small local producers, and perfectly rounded off the meal. Drinks wise, the local wheat beer is worth a try.

The welcome was warm, the food excellent and the prices reasonable. We had booked in advance, were offered a choice of tables in a lively and well-patronised restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful in making recommendations from the menu and for wine. The fish we selected for our main course were delicious, excellently presented and served. We experimented with... More

I had the turbot and it was the best fish I had ever had! My husband's fish was also delicious. We shared great chocolate mousse. Excellent service and it is very close to Grand Amrath Hotel.

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.
