We were wanting to celebrate a special occasion with a quality lunch. From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt special. Excellent service, great wine recommendation and a simple menu that raised expectations of a great meal that was exceeded in presentation taste and quality

For a Michelin Star lunch or dinner at the canal, go to Bridges. For Michelin Star restaurant Bridges is relatively large. In the morning, it is used as a breakfast room for the hotel guests of The Grand. So in my opinion it is not so atmospheric. But you get a nice mix of dishes presented. The flavours are not... More

For a couple of hours, on a rainy Sunday afternoon, after enjoying a Lazy Sunday Jazz Grachtenfestival concert in the halls of Hotel Sofitel Legend Grand Amsterdam, we had an exquisite gourmet experience at lunch at Bridges restaurant. A fusion starter, three courses meal, assorted wines (thank you, sommelier!)! Not to mention dessert and coffee! Whole thing enhanced by the... More

This was our last night (out of five) in which we dined in Amsterdam and we chose our hotel's restaurant, a wise choice as we needed to pack that evening for an early departure. I will say that as a hotel guest it is a little disappointing to find that the fine dining option is that same venue that one... More

Stopped here for lunch, originally planning to have the (much cheaper) lunch menu, but in the end had a 3 course meal. The two course lobster dishes were excellent, and highly recommended. We each had a fish course after this, which was perfectly good, but was nothing amazing. The somellier recommended we try the Beta Delta 2011, which went very... More

If anything the food is even better than a few months ago. The portions are on the small side which works nicely to allow you to try several dishes. The service continues to be excellent as is the wine list. Yes, this is an expensive restaurant but well worth it if you want outstanding seafood prepared in an innovative manner.

Easily the best starter I have ever eaten. They adapted the langoustine dish to make it dairy free and it was out of this world.
