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

When we arrived, there was no table available although we had reservation. We were asked to wait at the bar so we did but after 15 or 20 min we got seriously annoyed and left. It was a complete waste of time and also money as we had to pay for parking. Nobody apologized for the mistake. We also didn´t... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Bis. The service was friendly and efficient. We had a table by the window overlooking the canal, which added to the atmosphere. Each course was excellent, and the price quite reasonable for what we got. Altogether a wonderful evening.

Cafe resturant without much of a special feel. Food was good but menu a little limited. Decor and menu could be stronger.

I had made a booking on internet and immediately got an sms that the reservation was taken care of. A table at the rear of the restaurant on the canal side was reserved and it was perfect. For a non too expensive lunch with really well presented and excellent food I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant which on the face... More

Bis is known for its wine and tapas. I've come here several times now -- for lunch, an afternoon break and for dinner. The soups are lovely and come with enough bread to make a good meal, but the Club Bis (club sandwich) is really far and away the best on the menu! Heartily suggested! For an afternoon break, choose... More
