Great food.

We stumbled across this restaurant and it was great find. We both had the aubergine caviar as a starter - it was delicious. I had the seafood salad - it had a good variety of fresh seafood and was wonderful. My husband enjoyed the lamb. The restaurant was very busy, the service was a bit slow... read more

We had dinner on the small terrace on a hot summer day. The waitress was friendly but quite in a rush and not really helpfull. I had some fish, which was pretty nice, as well as the chardonnay. However, the prices are pretty high for what you're getting. And I really dislike that they only serve water in bottles. That's... More

Everything is okay. The food, the service, the location, the atmosphere. But there is nothing what makes BIS a place to advise. For this price it should offer something special to step out the crowd

I've been curious to try out Bis for a while now, as it gets good reviews online and always seems to be packed. This weekend I took my mom out there for what was supposed to be a quick and yummy lunch, but unfortunately we were both very underwhelmed by the experience. It took us 45 minutes after we ordered...

Nice interior and atmosphere. Waiters did not seem busy but were not very eager to make your evening unforgettable. Wine was served in a small glass but still costy. Cooks had their dinner inside restaurant when we entered at about 6pm, which I thought was nice. Bad side of this was that it took longer for the complimentary breads to... More

First let me say that we originally were going to dine at a restaurant I'm familiar with from my time in Utrecht called the Goedheyd. Due to a menu change the next day and a limited menu, we decided to forego the fixed menu and try something new. Popped out the mobile, pulled up TripAdvisor and looked for something nearby....

Tap water is simply refused; bottled water is costly as a glass of wine. This is one of the bad sides of a number of Dutch restaurants. Tap water is safer, cleaner, better for your health and a factor 100-1000 cheaper than bottled water. The food is reasonable, but too expensive. Wa.iting times are excessive

Every time I have visited Bis for a meal with friends, the food has been impressive and delicious. The servers are friendly and accommodating, too. Then there is the wonderful canal view from the upper floor windows... Fantastique!

Went to the Bis restaurant on the Oudegracht with colleagues for a Christmas dinner on Wednesday, 12 December. We had booked a table for 9, and we were a bit squashed together - instead of adding an extra table for the 9th person, they were squeezed onto the side of the table. The staff was very helpful when we were... More
