Good quality, but points for improvement

We have been coming to this restaurant for 15 years. When it changed ownership 5 years ago, the concept changed, but the quality stayed the same.

Went here recently for a family dinner. We had specifically put in a request to sit outside but were seated inside as apparently the person taking the reservation had not made that note (they also actually didn't put the reservation into the system but remembered the call). After we were seated everything went downhill. Literally the servers ignored us. We... More

Every aspect of this meal contributed a very special lunch. Wonderful service, beautiful food and a great setting looking out over the canal.

We booked to come here on 7/8/15, we arrived and there was a power cut! Felt so sorry for the waiter and management, it was very busy and unfortunate it happened! They were doing everything they could, gave us plenty of drinks and then paid for and organised a taxi for us to their neighbouring restaurant. It looked clean and... More

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 dessert with rhubarb and... 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
