I was invited to lunch here and we were shown to a table on the terrace at the rear, overlooking the water. The waiter recommended a starter and main course, both of which were well-presented and very tasty. When the sun came out I was finding the glare a little uncomfortable (sensitive eyes), and on a whim asked the waiter... More

Subtle but inviting decor. Wait staff very professional with a sense of humor. Wine list quite good but house wine was very good. We had the fixed price menus. the roasted lamb was perfectly cooked, seasoned and tender. Both the tuna tartar and scallops were surperb. the presentation rivals any. All in all, our best meal in Holland and one... More

We ate here for our 26th Anniversary. The meal was fantastic. Wine selection was good, house wine was fantastic. Each dish was artfully prepared with a great combination of flavors and textures. Very upscale, but I have paid a lot more for much less!

We had a fixed menu, which was very good value too. Very friendly service in a full restaurant, and the food was sublime. Good wine list too. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful meal here with great service...I saw some of the reviews that comment on the service but our service was wonderful with no issues. Our meals were all beautiful and perfectly cooked. The ambiance in the restaurant was very nice.

Outstanding french restaurant within walking distance of the Van Gogh museum. The food and presentation were equally great. The service could have been better.

I had not been here for a few years. The ambience is restful and quietly elegant. The quality of the food and wine selection are excellent. The service was friendly, efficient and as it should be. All in all a perfect evening. I will be back soon!

We loved it. Fine dining at very fair prices. Nice setting on a canal if weather is fair. Only forewarning is that portions are euro-minimalist. However, the tastes and presentation made that small criticism. It was perhaps our best dinner in A-dam.

Van Vlaanderen is a classy looking place with an elegant dining room and in the back a terrace along the water. We came for the set menu but were disappointed by the slow service between courses. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. It was busy because of the special restaurant week but that is no excuse... More
