Description: Fifteen restaurant in Amsterdam is an exciting offshoot of Jamie Oliver’s famous Fifteen London, a great example of one set of dynamic, generous people inspiring others to act. In this case, the ‘others’ are Sarriel Taus and Coen Alewijnse who have created this combination restaurant and chef’s school in partnership with Fifteen London to benefit the struggling young people of Amsterdam. So what’s it like at the dining end of the equation? Very cool. The arty cosmopolitan style includes vibrant graffiti-scrawled sheet metal walls contrasting nice with the smart, sleek modern lines, designer seating and white table cloths. The restaurant seats up to 200, yet can still feel right for an dinner a deux. Each night a tasting menu is on offer, inspired by Jamie Oliver incorporating only the freshest regional produce. The modern Italian menu changes weekly and includes one of Jamie’s favourite antipasti to start, a first dish of fresh pasta, gnocchi or risotto, second course of meat, fish, poultry or game, and, we’re quoting here, ‘a wicked dessert’. A wine tasting menu is available to match the food tasting menu, or choose your own from the excellent list.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who lived in Amsterdam for some time. The food was EXCELLENT! We went for lunch but I would also recommend as a great dinner spot. Atmosphere is modern, service was great. Loved the cheeses and meat. Also recommend the caesar salad and warm ham sandwich.

On the Prinsengracht canal. The food was delicious. Must try the cheeses and sausages. Everything is fresh. Prices were reasonable. Staff is very pleasant. Had to return on our last night.

Close to our hotel, the Pulitzer. Nice atmosphere. Open kitchen. Small, very manageable portions. Extremely high quality. Several good wines by the glass. A classy place with super food.

Ate at Envy early August and Without doubt the guys at Envy have it just right. The food was exceptional, beyond reproach and the ambience and service was to die for (although the first waitress was not the most helpful). I can honestly say I have never eaten peri peri chicken quite like it and every dish we ordered was... More

We landed in Amsterdam on Sun. noon and start to walk in our hotel area for a quiet lunch when we saw Envy. they had only 2-3 tables outside and we took one of them. We had a soup and a salad that were very fresh and tasty, just what we need in a new city/
