Today was awesome and we were delighted to enjoy fresh hearty meals after our long travel day and timezone adjustment. The meatballs and... More

A nice cozy place, good service and good traditional Dutch food. Save room for dessert. Try a couple different things from the menu. Very close to how my grandma cooked Dutch food. Reasonable prices!

The restaurant had a relaxed feel to it and the food was really good. It gave us a great experience of Dutch food and company - exactly what we wanted. Would definitely go... More

Be prepared for a very filling "stick to your ribs" meal. Our server was very friendly and described all the different dishes. The food was wonderful. Try to leave room for dessert, they are great as well.

After a great day in the nearby museums we were wandering back to the tram station and decided to have dinner. The district around Leidseplein is full of restaurants and De Blauwe was one of the few Dutch ones. We had no idea what "Dutch food" is, so decided to try it. We were very happy, all 5 of us... More

In an area crowded with eateries from around the world, we were determined to find Dutch food and we were delighted to find De Blauwe Hollander. I had cheese croquets to start, followed by hotchpotch served with a giant meatball. Traditional looking restaurant with lots of old wooden fittings, feels very cosy, service was very friendly, seems like a family... More

Small modern restaurant with some outdoor seating in a pedestrianised alley with lots of restaurants. Close to the museum quarter too. Wasn't that full at 6pm on Sunday evening. Meatballs were all right, with a bit too much potato. Mussels were nothing special
