After eating at the competitor "The Pantry" the previous evening, and having a wonderful meal, I half expected that De Blauwe Hollander wouldn't live up to our expectations, but it was really a first rate experience. The service was not only prompt and friendly, but very helpful in suggesting meals and drinks, and even provided a free round of drinks... More

We wanted to experience the dutch cuisine and picked up this restaurant. It turned out to be the right decision. The foods are very delicious and the portions are generous. Try one of the Hotchpotch in the menu. I had carrot and onion with tender beef and it was great. Steak is also tasty. From the desserts, try grandmothers' homemade... More

I decided to try some traditional Dutch food and was not disappointed with this restaurant. I also tried another establishment across the street which gets a higher score on trip advisor, but I honestly thought that, though the other is fine, the food here was much better. Great value for money too as the food is hearty and plentiful. I’m... More

Typical Dutch cuisine in a friendly restaurant with helpful and professional service. Large selection of dishes featuring many variations of hotchpotch. Really enjoyable and value for money.

I loved the food here, pea soup and delicious hotchpotch, which is a bit like Irish champ, with a delicious piece of tender stewed beef. Great service. Good value. The only thing that's a little disappointing is that all the other clients are tourists too.

We have been looking for a place to eat near the Museum area and after wandering further and further away we have stumbled on this establishment among the usual touristy places offering pizzas and burgers. It advertises itself in six languages as offering Dutch Cuisine; this seemed to put off all the wandering tourists who seemed to walk past without... More

We came back for our second weekend in Amsterdam in over 20 years and headed for our apartment to find somewhere nearby to eat before book-in time at 4 p.m. We thought "Dutch!" and we thought rightly (there was plenty of choice in this district, including many Italian and South American eateries). It was mid/late afternoon but the food was... More

On our four day trip to Amsterdam we ate in this restaurant 3 times, twice for dinner and once for lunch. It's in a street full of restaurants, so there is lots of choice, but we were so impressed with the food, the staff and the value for money that we kept going back. The different varieties of 'hotchpotch' are... More

Like other reviewers, I have frequented this establishment on both business and private visits over some 25 years. On my last visit it was closed. We were delighted to see it back: for all that the Dutch themselves deny 'Dutch cuisine', this place demonstrates clearly that they have recipes and ingredients that are unique (e.g. the erwentensoep). The service is... More
