The 4 of us really enjoyed this restaurant. The rilletes, the sardines, the boar--all were excellent.

Long time since I have visited my favorite restaurant. Glad to see it is still doing very well. Wonderful dinner. Great Savigny les Beaunes with monk fish. (yes, you COULD make a more logical choice, but not a nicer one) I was sorry I did not try the venison that was part of the menu. Beautiful cheese afterwards. Perfect dinner... More

We found this place by pure chance, what a treasure it proved to be. It was patronised almost exclusively by locals, but is clearly one of the upmarket "in" places to eat. The food was superb and the cheese selection far too good to miss, even though I'm sure it kept me awake. Give it a try, you won't be... More

Not sure how - but we found ourselves in this restaurant with our 2 kids (15, 11) and our particular food preferences (3 of us don't eat meat, 2 don't eat shellfish, one doesn't eat any meat but chicken). We immediately realized it wasn't the right place for us - but stuck with it till the happy end! In the... More

We went to this restaurant for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent from the amuse-bouche through to dessert. They have an excellent range of choices and we had both fish and meat dishes and they were equally excellent. After a large meal we finished with a dessert... More

Really enjoy their food and good service. Can be recommended for about any occasion, except maybe when a very formal set up is preferred. Has rather casual ambiance yet food and attentive service make this place special. Good selection of wines and that special desert trolley with a great selection of sweets and cheese. Set menus or a la carte... More

I had dinner at Bordewijk on recommendation while staying in Amsterdam. The 3-course dinner with wines turned out to be absolutely fabulous, with very high quality ingredients and well-balanced, yet surprising tastes in it. The staff was very friendly, having a relaxed but professional grasp on the service. My favorite was the elder gentleman, manager for the shift, who elegantly... More

We came here for dinner (with a reservation made about a week in advance) and I was not expecting much. The decor is minimalist, and we were sat at a table with a single candlestick and plastic chairs! The chef came right over to our table, introduced himself and explained the menu for the evening. He took our order, with... More
