Great food, friendly service

9 of us turned up on spec on the recommendation of a local who we passed in the street. We were looked after with great humour and really lovely food. It is only just off the main tourist trail but well worth the detour.

This is a lovely unpretentious restaurant using great Dutch produce to maximum effect. Service is charming by most attentive staff but relaxed and not intrusive.

This restaurant is little bit off the beaten path in Amsterdam, but we were richly rewarded for searching it out. Upon entering this light and airy restaurant, we were warmly greeted by our host and waiter for the evening. He showed us to several tables by the large picture window and let us select our seat. After offering us a... More

Strongly recommended by the pocket Amsterdam Lonely Planet guide. This time we definitely learned to reckon what Lonely Planet's authors suggest! The place is nice but food and service are not worth you money. My main course was fish Heilbotfilet and came with a potatoes purée. Everything overcooked and so sad to taste and see. The Rokkaasrouleau was ok. Excellent... More

We asked for a table at a particular time and they gave an honest answer and stayed true it, the table was ready when we showed up later. Great food, very friendly and accommodating service. Good wine list without being pretentious.

The waitstaff know their stuff, and are very friendly. Their recommendations are the result of careful listening and they do very well even when the restaurant is busy. The food is excellent and for the quality is very reasonably priced. Not an over the top pretentious restaurant, but has the same quality of food (which is what I class as... More

I would visit this place again.. The food was really good, staff friendly as they are normally in Amsterdam and a very nice sophisticated atmosphere. I should ideally date this excellent but then I did not try the heavenly mud dessert ! which from my husband's reaction was great !

We enjoyed excellent Dutch food here - crab bisque, mackerel mousse and perfectly cooked halibut, followed by the chocolate dessert after which it takes its name. There is nothing fancy about the decor - it has the feel of a local's restaurant. They are happy to let the food do the talking. Very friendly and efficient service. Recommended.
