“restaurant Nevy: spectacular view but needs improvements”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

On a sunny sunday we had lunch at Nevy's. The view on the port of Amsterdam, the Central Station and the magnificent new Eye-building is spectacular. Tabels and chairs on the terrace are metallic and rather simple. The winelist is short but adequate, although prices are relatively high. We had the 3-course menu at 35 euro's. Nice presentation of each plate, small portions and moderate taste impressions. We had no particular complaints but no compliments either. And for these prices we had expected a bit more. The service is decent but a bit at distance.

“Hi end dining on Amsterdam waterfront”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Nevy is on the ground floor of a modern waterfront building, just north east of the city center. It looks out across to some modern buildings and you see the ships coming in and out. They have a nice outside deck where you can have a drink or dine and inside is modern but not overdone. Their speciality is seafood, especially lobster and they have a nice wine collection. We were a group of 7 and we had a shared menu with tasters for the starters and dessert. I found the desserts a bit heavy and the food good but not great. We dined on a Monday evening and one of the staff was sick. As a result service was very slow...and they were very apologetic, so I would not hold that against them. What I liked most was that there was an "out of town" feel even though you are very close to the city center.

“nevy magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

A warm friendly welcome set the scene for this very enjoyable meal. All three courses were artistically presented and tasted to match. The view from our table was pleasant and the constant movement on the water added to our conversation. The main course of cod on a bed of risotto was particularly delicious and was complimented by an aromatic glass of sauvignon blanc. The decor of the restaurant is fresh and the layout offers privacy.

“Excellent dinner with fabulous view and reasonably priced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

For a tremendous amount of outstanding food, excellent service and a fabulous view of the IJ, this is the place to go. The lobster prix fix was excellent as were the oysters and other entrees and appetizers. The cost was extremely reasonable, including wine and after dinner drinks. Will definitely return. There is also an outdoor seating area where we had drinks which will be beautiful for dinner in the warm weather.
