On a picturesque canal in the oldest part of Amsterdam, the Hemelse Modder was a real find. With reasonably priced menus of 3 and 4 courses that even cater to vegetarians and a wide choice of wines, it was easy to have a wonderful dining experience. Service was attentive, but not overly intrusive, and the decor was style-full and relaxed.... More

Four of us went in a World Cup night - the chief wanted to finish early but the restaurant staff ensured we didn't feel rushed! We had the wine option with each course! And I learned the difference between a compote and a parfait! Lol - I'm not the brightest! ;-D we loved the wines with each course! I would... More

Tripping down a surprising side street, Oude Waal, in Amsterdam, one chances on as fine a meal as could be found anywhere, at the restaurant Hemelse Modder. Jammed from the opening at 6 P.M. there's a three and four course menu offering, among other lovingly prepared Goodies, puff pastries with grilled and roasted summer vegetables, salmon pickled in beet juice--...

Having read a lot of reviews of this restaurant, I decided to take the plunge and have an informal business dinner there. The ambiance is really nice, the welcome warm, and the food compared to price most enjoyable - good portion and well prepared. The only negative point was that it took some time between the starter and the first... More

We enjoyed everything very much: the starter, the main course and the very delicious dessert (hemelse modder/ heavenly mud, very good!). The staff is professional in advising the right wine to go with the meal! Afterwards we had a lovely dessert wine on the terrace! High quality and service for friendly prices. I absolutely recommend this restaurant! Thank you for... More

Great food especially the dessert! Had the 3 course set menu, which included a starter, main course and dessert. Quite a bargain for the quality of food and excellent service. The ambiance was lovely. Try to get the seats outside the cafe at the back. Staff was professional and friendly. Of course you have to try the "heavenly mud" dessert,... More

Terrific food and a lovely ambiance. Service a tad slow, but place packed on a Tuesday evening testifies to its excellence. Set price round €40 for 4 courses a good deal. I note it's been going 30 years, starting as a squat: longevity and origins speak well of a real find.

We arrived in our favourite city on a hot and sunny Friday having just had our restaurant of choice cancel the booking. So - to Hemelse Modder, and what a treat. The staff were professional: friendly and informative but not overbearing. A beautifully crisp wine was suggested to accompany smoked sea bass, hake and asparagus, and excellent coffee came with...

An informal restaurant with first-rate food at a reasonable price. We chose the 3-course menu. I had the shrimp/salad appetizer; my husband had the pate. Both were excellent - fresh, tasty and well-presented. Same for the main courses. Of course I had the "house" dessert for which the restaurant is named - "heavenly mud" - and it was: dark chocolate... More

We found this wonderful restaurant, close to our hotel, thanks to TripAdvisor. It was fully booked the first night we tried to get in but we did manage to book for the following night. Think we were the only non-locals dining there but the head-waiter spoke wonderful English and made us feel very welcome, even finding us a table in... More
