Great food! Awesome terrace in front of the Amstel. Services takes a bit too much time but it's worth it!

My husband and I rented bicycles during our visit to Amsterdam and on Sunday, while cycling around the city, we came across Girassol. It looked like a very charming restaurant so we decided to try it out for lunch. We sat outside right on the river. The decoration was wonderful, with actual sand on the ground. Everything we ate was... More

We had the best service and food we have had on our Europe trip so far. I give it 110%! My partner and I had the tasting plate to share for starters and the salmon as fish of the day and the octopus! we also had the sangria which was just as good. I could not fault this place. Beautiful... More

Had a very satisfying dinner at this friendly restaurant. The rolicking Portuguese music added to the atmosphere. They have an olive and paprika chutney that comes with the bread. I found that very good. The salmon was great.

I was pleasantly surprised of this small neighbourhood restaurant along the Amstel. I went for the Swordfish served with asparagus, anchovies, tomatoes and fried potatoes and would highly recommend it. We went on a Friday evening around 19:00h and was very lucky to get a seat. For the next time, I would definitely make a reservation. Service was slow and... More

We went to the Girassol twice on our recent visit to Amsterdam. The first time was on the recommendation of our B&B host and the second time was try the dish a neighbouring table had that looked interesting. Our first visit was lovely. We were greeted warmly at the door and seated quickly. We had a little appetizer at our... More

When I first moved here I heard from different people within the Portuguese community that there was a "real" Portuguese restaurant in town. Years later Girassol is still one of my favorite restaurants. And it's not just my nostalgic craving of our typical dishes. Whenever I go there most customers seemed to be a loyal crowd of local Dutch, mixed... More

This is my second time ever eating at a Portuguese restaurant and I have to say it's even better than the first time (in Hamburg). Killer tapas, very tender and flavourful octopus, followed by a cataplana seafood stew that was to die for. All that came with super friendly and personable service. It made me want to go to Portugal.... More
