Interesting Dutch Cuisine

A very popular restaurant for both tourists and locals. Well-prepared Dutch fare served in large quantities. My wife's meatball was so big the two us didn't finish it. Extremely friendly and efficient service. Child friendly. Saw them furnish a coloring book. The asparagus soup was outstanding... read more

We came here to have dutch cuisine, and we did enjoy the food. The waitstaff was curt and not friendly at all. When we arrived, there were lots of open tables - perhaps 1/3 full, and a group of 4 ahead of us. All of a sudden we were told to sit at a nearby table so we sat. It... More

Went there for dinner on our first night in Amsterdam with a friend and I must say, it was the best restaurant we were in all of Amsterdam. Authentic food and very friendly service. As we both work in hospitality industry, we were very positively surprised by the level of service provided by Tijmen. Good at upselling, accommodating our requests... More

This was some of the best apple pie that we've had in a while...absolutely delicious. Warm apple pie, caramel, ice cream...to die for!! The only reason we didn't give this place 5 stars was b/c when... More

We stopped here for traditional Dutch meal. The staff was very nice and the food was a good value and very filling. We had hotpotch which was essentially missing everything together with mashed potatoes when you were a child. Very nice and warming on a rainy day.

We stopped here to try the traditional Dutch "hotchpotch". The restaurant is nice, staff very helpful and hotchpotch delicious. Some really small things that prevented me from giving five stars: we had to wait really long for the soup and the desert. I can appreciate it takes some time to prepare the main course, but the soup and desert was... More

The food and staff were wonderful! We went to De Blauwe Hollander on a Saturday night with some friends. We were not familiar with the items on the menu, but wanted to experience a traditional meal. The staff were very patient and generous with their time. Their recommendations were superb as was the food! The Hotchpotch and puffertjes were out... More

Friends who live in Amsterdam wanted to take us to a restaurant there for a traditional Dutch meal and when it arrived on the table it looked so exciting. Home cooking in it's true form. The meal was presented beautifully and bursting with flavour, and we were served personally by the owner, what a lovely lady. If I lived in... More
