Surprisingly Delicious With Perfect Service And Quaint Atmosphere

Some Indonesian restaurants look a little garish and predictable (batik, shadow puppets etc) but not Blue Pepper. It's small and cosy, extremely plain-looking from the outside, and the food is delicate and subtle. Recommended for a night out in Amsterdam.

This is a small restaurant and was very busy with one server looking after all the tables. However, she managed very well and was very friendly and efficient. They do 2 rice tables as well as an a carte menu. We had the smaller rice table (fewer dishes) which was more than enough. All the ingredients (lamb, chicken, prawns, veggie)... More

This was quite a walk from our hotel, but host's son talked so enthusiastically about it, we gave it a try. The food was amazing. You must try the venison starter with pomegranate salad. It was to die for! Had main course of hake, very spicy with fairly hot accompaniments, but very edible. The staff were very charming. It was... More

Had an amazing meal here with a group and they took care of us all very well. The restaurant is small and narrow with a bright blue wall which was quite quirky. The food was amazing and there was so much of it, the courses just kept coming! Definitely recommend for the rice table experience, but it's a good idea... More

There was a large group of us and a friend of mine had recommended this place to us. The food was excellent and the recommendations were really helpful from the Irish waiter. He also gave us night life tips too and some excellent banter. Although we were a little crowded at our table the food and wine pairing was brilliant.... More

This is one of the finest Indonesian restaurants you will ever have the chance to eat at, and you should make a reservation as soon as you arrive in Amsterdam. It's a small, warmly lit restaurant with elegant table settings and, yes, a blue themed interior design. The owner operated restaurant is run by a husband and wife team who... More

We had found Tempo Deloe good food, but crowded and staff uncaring, so we tried this Tripadvisor recommendation... Wonderful food, beautifully served in a truly relaxed, very tasteful setting.
