Excellent dinner, beautiful setting. Undervalued.

Van Vlaanderen has a beautiful terrace out in the back with a quiet view on a canal. The inside is very nice as well. This is a bib gourmand restaurant, meaning you'll get a high quality three course meal for 36,50. We had a fabulous meal, highlights being a perfectly cooked duck breast filet and a... read more

We went there on a Saturday in July. Not to crazy with people so the waiter took good care of us. Very nice and friendly staff. Food wise it was good aswell. Everything tasted good but nothing "blewed our mind" so to say. Overall a nice experience, 2people who had a 4 course each and a bottle of Chardonnay, with... More

Our concierge at Hotel De L'Europe suggested Van Vlaanderen, after our reservation for De Kas was not obtained by our Amex Centurion concierge (yet another nail in their coffin!). Not that there is any comparison, but being our only night in Amsterdam, and the fact that it was the warmest day on record in the city since records started being... More

Van Vlaanderen had a Michelin * for a while, but they were not very pleased with it, as it limited their creativity. So when they lost it, they were not unhappy. Five years ago, the ownership changed: the interior remained the same, but the kitchen moved away from French (especially from the delicious but fattening cream and butter sauces) to... More

Booked a Friday night table for two and we weren't disappointed. It was a straightforward tram ride from Centraal station (16 or 24) to Weteringcircuitnand then a short walk. We went for the 5 course Chef's menu, but not with the matched wines preferring to select a bottle from the good selection on the wine list. The food was beautifully... More

My wife and I were regular visitors to Van Vlaanderen under the previous owners and considered it to be our favourite restaurant. This was our first visit since the change of ownership and we visited with a degree of trepidation as we were concerned that things might not be as good. We shouldn't have been concerned. The restaurant has the... More

This restaurant, located near the city centre, is one of my favourites in Amsterdam. It offers all the ingredients I expect to find in a good restaurant: - a warm, tasteful interior - the tables are set wide apart, guaranteeing the privacy of your conversation - no music - pleasant, attentive, but informal service - the food is of excellent...

We were brought to Van Vlaanderen by close friends who eat here regularly as this is their favourite restaurant in Amsterdam - we were, nor surprisingly, made very welcome by the management and very friendly and efficient staff. It's a cosy unprepossessing place on two levels, very accessible with a tram stop outside. I struggled to find the Tripadvisor entry,... More
