We found this in a Top 10 Guide to Amsterdam, and saw that it was only a few minutes walk from our hotel.
We were the first customers to come in for lunch. The host was very hospitable, and he explained the menu and the dishes. We chose the 2-course lunch. Menu changes according to what is fresh and in season, available at reasonable cost. Today, we had fresh pasta with pesto, tiny croutons, some shaved cheese, and nice pieces of fresh salmon. We started with flesh bread slices, olive oil or butter. Then an amuse-bouche, which had a greenish verdaine, fresh thin film of haddock, half a cherry tomato, a tiny button meringue with lime flavor--this was unusual and excellent. After the pasta and salmon was dessert, which came in a bowl of ripe strawberries alternating with cooked rhubarb stalk, ripe raspberries, tiny drops of whipped cream and again the meringue buttons with hint of lime.
In summary, this was a superb lunch fit for a discriminating gourmand. Price was very reasonable for the quality and taste. And we finished with cappuccino, and I had a taste of local jenevere. We shall return for dinner. I think this place deserves a Michelin star based on the food.
