Delicious Dutch food in an original presentation

Old long forgotten veggies are given a completely new character in this restaurant on the main square. The food is delicious, the presentation impressive, and dishes original, the food organic from local farmers, and that's what you pay for.

Loved this place and especially Lie and Rianne are so welcoming. The concept restaurant focuses to introduce the forgotten dutch vegetables in a modern way, and its solid. Cannot wait to be back.

Noce to sit outside in the summer (just make sure it's not market cleaning time!!). You may want to book.

The owners didn't win a restaurant tv-contest for nothing with this restaurant. With the tasty food, excellent service and nice ambiance the whole concept comes together (and i'm a sucker for good concepts...). The menu consists of Dutch dishes. Not just the traditional ones, but also modern combinations with specific Dutch ingredients. The new chef has brought it to a... More

Wonderful meal of three courses with complimentary bread basket and tapenade followed by beautifully presented plates. Helpfully they gave the two British of us the English menus. Each course was perfect and the service was professional and discreetly attentive - I would highly recommend a visit here. The enthusiasm of one of the young owners, who was present, was charming....

I chose this restaurant set in a great location for its good reviews. I was disappointed with the interior of the place. It has obviously not been renovated or styled in a long time. The food, however, was delicious. So was the wine. And friendly service too. Please have a make over, and I will definitely come back! :)

During our visit we were told that this restaurant was awarded by a national TV programm for its vision to use seasonal and regional ingredients and forgotten vegetables, like the parsnip where this restaurant took its Dutch name from. The restaurant delivers not only a nice outside terrace but also several sections inside on the ground floor. The designer has... More

This restaurant is downtown Amersfoort and is a gem! The food is top notch and a good variety on the menu. Definitely to be recommended. I would consider this more fine dining then a family type of meal.

Located on the Hof: the large and historical market square in the middle of Amersfoort De Pastinaeck has chosen a the Dutch cuisine as its specialty. Taking forgotten vegetables and old Dutch recipies and turning it into something special.

This restaurant is nice as it attempts to deviate in terms of the cuisine, using local ingredients and old vegetables. It is not expensive and located in the centre of town on a large square, with an outside terrace. Staff is generally attentive. The decor internally is not very special. It is an above average restaurant, but does not belong... More
