A short walk from the Doubletree Hilton by a small canal just south of the Central Station. An unassuming entrance. We went on a Sunday night, so it was not packed, but those dining were sitting in one part of the restaurant, which gave it a nice feel without everyone being on top of each other. Across our party of... More

While having a training in the Central Library of Amsterdam, I went for dinner at the restaurant Hemelse Modder with a group of colleagues. It´s located at walking distance from the Central Station. We had a good time there. Their service is friendly, effective and reasonably fast for Dutch patterns. They offered menus of 3 or 4 courses with fixed... More

If you're staying at the Doubletree Hilton or indeed anywhere in the vicinity of the central station, this lovely restaurant is only a short walk away and worth a visit. We arrived with rain in the air but opted foolishly for a table outside, which on a dry evening would be pleasant, but...When the heavens opened we were quickly moved... More

We went last night for my Birthday and it was a beautiful evening. We sat outside in their terrace garden. The food, service and whole atmosphere was faultless. We have been coming to this restaurant a few times and it has become our favourite in Amsterdam . Thank you to everyone there last night for such a lovely evening .... More

This restaurant was recommended by a tourist guide so four of us were looking forward to a typically upmarket Amsterdam dinner in the oldest part of town. The upmarket bit might have been accurate and the restaurant itself seemed promising to begin with but what we finished up getting was poor service, very ordinary food and a horribly expensive bill....

This restaurant was an awesome little find. The service was very attentive and she helped us navigate the Dutch wine list to find a good wine. The menu has three and four course meals. The appetizers were very good. During a warm Amsterdam summer night the chilled summer soup (gazpacho really) was great on a warm night. We both ordered... More

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--...
