Description: Dear guest, The past year was a great year for Daalder ... We got ourselves a listing in the Gault Millau 2014 with no less than 15 points ... and won the GaultMillau Price Fun Award ...All this praise led to a visit of the Michelin Guide ...and...they were absolutely delighted! Daalder's goal in 2014 is to become: The simplest 'Michelin Star Cafe' in the world . Obviously without Michelin star prices and the star behaviour. This year we want to exceed the expectations, by serving even less dishes with an even higher level. So,you choose whether you want to eat an 3-4-5 or 6-course menu and leave the rest to our Chef's. The new concept is a big succes, so to meet the high demands, now you can also book for lunch at Daalder; for even more beautiful prices at the same beautiful level. lunch: daily exept Saturdays ) Lunch 2- course menu € 23.50 3- course menu € 29.50 4- course menu € 36.50 diner 3-course menu € 36.50 4-course menu € 42.50 5-course menu € 50.00 6-course menu € 57.50 With Warm Culinairy Regards, Frans van Dam & Wilke Durand

“An Adventure in Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We were recommended to Restaurant Daalder by a server at another restaurant. Daalder is like no other place I have eaten. You choose how many course you want, and then they bring them to you without your knowing what you will get until it arrives. the size of the portions is adjusted to the number of courses ordered, but you can add more as you go- as we did. The food was superb, as were the wines (we got their selection of paired wines to go with each course, and the service was excellent. The staff is enthused about their restaurant and justifiably proud of what they offer. The evening was a memorable experience in the best sense of the word.

“Well worth a visit however expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant, the attention to detail is great and the food very good. We went especially as the chefs choose what food you had so if you are not fussy its great. The only things I would say is that is not value for money, the portions were very small, we had the 3 courses and the main course was meat but it did not come with any vegetables, it was a generous portion of meat but it came with nothing. Quality of food is very good but for what you pay it is a little disappointing. The overall atmosphere and feel of the restaurant is lovely. When we came to pay it took 30 mins for them to get their card machine working which left us on a negative which was a shame as it was embarrassing having 2 cards turned down and then having to wait for half an hour for the problem to be solved, it was the telephone connection of the card machine nothing to do with our cards. I am just glad I was with a family member as could have been very embarrassing. I am more than happy to pay for that little something special however this was just too much.

“Michelinvalue for less money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Daalder is a hidden secret in Amsterdam. Amazing food, amazing value. Really creative cooking in a small former cafe at the Jordaan. All dishes look liked an art director designed them. And Daalder is also open on monday. What a treat!

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

My wife and I visited Daalder and were very impressed with the 7 course tasting menu which would be the envy of any Michelin starred restaurant. Fantastic !
