A wonderful reception and fantastic food. A must if you're in Amsterdam and love food! The starter was a lovely palette of small tapas, followed by an amazing duck dish and a lovely dessert! All accompanied by wonderful wine of the week. I am definitely going again!

Amazing food and great service all at unbelievable good value. We had a lovely evening in this small and very busy gem. No wonder it is recommended by so many. Consider yourself very fortunate if you get a table and then sit back and enjoy great food.

Restaurant is intimate with a distressed vintage charm with a modern twist. The set starters were generally good with one or two out of five missing the mark. Mains of Veal Rib Chop (fabulous) and Tuna steak (good) with excellent house red wine. Great staff,very good food with a cool uptown clientele made for a great evening

the place is amazing. Dutch quality food, wines and beers of excellent standard. We were greeted nicely by the home team, always attentive from start to finish. Menu entry with 5 different types served together, main course with two options and dessert. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

This is a really quaint little restaurant. It was very busy, but we had booked ahead and only had to wait a couple of minutes. There were five really unique starters with a great variety of tastes. The main courses were either meat or fish (we had both) and all flavours were superbly balanced. I would happily eat here again... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been. It opens just for dinner and hasfew tables. The starter of the menu was so delicious that we had to ask a second one (mussels, escargot, cheese mousse and house made butter and bread) . For main course I had veal that was perfect.

Small, intimate and wonderful. We were led to this small restaurant by an ex-pat we happened to meet in his treasure of a chocolate shop called Chocolatel on Hasenstraat in Amsterdan. We were early, happened to get a table and were quite pleased with the quality of the meal, the personal service and one of the best desserts I've ever... More

This is a set menu, though chef will tweek it if he can. Staff are helpful but a little forgetful. My main course came without one of the 2 main ingredients ( mussels in their shells) which one found hard to understand how they could be missed especially as we were diners 3 and 4 at the beginning of the...

Simply delicious . Small restaurant with plain decor and an open kitchen. Everybody is squashed in creating a cosy and buzzy atmosphere. The chefs decide on a new menu each week depending on fresh, seasonal products. The menu is then the same each evening. It is a set menu for 35 euros consisting of a starter, main and dessert. The...

This was our third visit and the restaurant delivers consistently fresh ingredients in surprising and unusual, delicious combinations. The usual bread and butter is so good here that it has to be mentioned. We then had a really memorable citrusy burrata as part of the 6-item starter, followed by a main of grilled iberico pork with a generous dash of... More
