Slow Service

Very friendly staff and cannot fault them in this. Service just too slow which always spoils things for me. Starter was good, a little lacking in the flavour I was expecting. Mains was ok but mashed potato a bit lumpy, asparagus good, fish ok. Generally again just not as flavoursome as I... read more

Very friendly staff and cannot fault them in this. Service just too slow which always spoils things for me. Starter was good, a little lacking in the flavour I was expecting. Mains was ok but mashed potato a bit lumpy, asparagus good, fish ok. Generally again just not as flavoursome as I expected. Don't think I would go back.

My wife and I visited this restaurant as it was recommended on Trip Advisor and was very close to our hotel. We booked a table from the restaurants own web site on the afternoon of our visit as we weren't sure what the availability would be like on a Saturday night. The staff welcomed us in and offered a choice... More

In a short city trip it is hard to find a place that is unique to that city, presents good food, terrific wines and makes you feel welcome. Hemelse Modder is that restaurant in Amsterdam. In the city centre close to central station, but in a quiet neighbourhood. Situated on one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam with stunning... More

Definitely five stars for the food, which was lovely. We were a big work group of different nationalities and with various veggie, coeliac, pescatarian etc needs to cater for. Everyone got a delicious and well presented meal, which let's face it can be a bit of a challenge in Amsterdam sometimes! Service was charming and attentive, and the only delays... More

Lovely food, recommended by a local. Didn't seem to be many tourists here, they missed out! We ate here twice as we liked it so much.

One of the best dinners we've had in a very long time! The quality of food was outstanding - delicious and inventive. We both struggled to choose our courses, it all sounded lovely. It's unusual to go somewhere where I would have happily eaten all the options - even the veggie one! The staff were SO friendly and welcoming and... More

My husband and I popped in on Christmas Eve without a reservation to grab dinner. We were immediately seated, though the restaurant was busy. Our server was very friendly and provided advice on what to order, which we felt were really excellent suggestions. I ordered the lobster bisque which came with small raviolis full of lobster with a smooth brown... More

This place has a great vibe, been going here for years and watched it grow. Food is of the best quality, variety and flavours, and now they have updated it a bit with wine matching. Especially good for dates and special occasions.

Loved this restaurant. The food was outstanding from starter through to sweet. The atmosphere on a Saturday night was lively but not noisy - a really pleasant balance. The service was all you could want and added to a marvellous evening. To top it off the bill at the end of the evening was very reasonable indeed. If back in... More
