Great food in the hart of Amsterdam. Lobster with food grad is a daring combination, but works well. Very friendly staff. But you want a hamburger after you walk out the door because the portions are very small.

We made a reservation for the restaurant, but when we got there and saw the courtyard we decided to eat outside and order from the Bistro menu. It is located right on the edge of the Red Light District. The staff were exceptional. They knew all the ingredients in each dish, how it was cooked, how it was presented and... More

Just an amazing dining / Culinary experience. The lamb was amazing. Lots of extra treats as well (can't say as they need to be a surprise!)

The dishes there were very special. The staff recommended us to pick 3 - 4 courses from the menu. All the dishes are starter-sized and were displayed like a picture. I chose 2 tartar. The one with oyster and veal was soaked in light and ginger water which gave me a very fresh feel. The other one with mackerel, white... More

Restaurant with good service; good food and nice but expensive wines. In the centre of Amsterdam. Plates, dishes are not 100%; very nice forks, spoons and knifes. The interior is nice but old.

Hi bought a groupon to try this restaurant, since it was in my list. Nothing to complain! I had my birthday lunch there, the food was amazing, the wine was really good, but a bit overpriced. The service was super! We were the last one to leave the restaurant no push at all. I will definitely come back to this... More

Whole thing enhanced by the fact that Princess Julianna was lunching there too (allbeit in another room) The Soffitel is beautifully set on a canal, away from the main hubbub and with the garden is...

I went for lunch at Bridges restaurant with a friend. It was sunny (which is a treat on itself) and the restaurant had set the tables in the garden. The garden is an inner courtyard of this former town hall of Amsterdam. You go from the vibrant city to a tranquil place. We went there on a Sunday and every... More

High end place. High end food. Extraordinary presentation. Excellent somelier who selected some intriguing dutch wine flights. Several amuse bouches to keep you entertained between courses. Fried lobster claw with citrus a liver pate mousse...wow! Convenient location near the Dam, in the lovely Sofitel. Tres cher. Worth the splurge.
