“Superb meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Decided to try this after reading recommendations on Tripadvisor and we were very pleased we did - enjoyed a lovely meal in relaxed, canal-side brasserie. The food is beautifully cooked and presented - menu is not large, but great quality meat and fish. The service was friendly, despite all the staff being really busy as it was Saturday evening and they were full (would advise to book ahead). Overall a lovely, unpretentious place to enjoy a delicious meal when in Amsterdam.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Visited this restaurant on Friday night and can not recommend this place enough. My partner and I were staying close by and decided to give this place a try after reading some great reviews on TripAdvisor. We arrived without making a reservation so were were disappointed to find the place fully booked. We were thrilled exceptionally friendly staff managed to find us a table as another couple were just finishing up. The interior is beautiful, very comfortable, cosy and romantic with a spotless open kitchen. All of the food on offer sounded delicious, we opted for the sharing platter to start which was served on three tier plates which looked fantastic and tasted wonderful. The main courses were beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The chef here clearly cares about the food they are putting out. I highly recommend that anyone visiting samples the home made limoncello which was by far the best I have ever tasted. Our night was made by the wonderful waitresses who were fun, friendly and well informed, they could not do enough to ensure we had a perfect evening.

“Excellent food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I had a great meal on 4th November, the staff were delightful and the food was excellent. We find a lot of Dutch food quite stodgy but this we delicious. It's not cheap but, we felt, worth the extra money. Well done!

“Excellent food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

Not knowing Amsterdam well, I was a little apprehensive as the taxi pulled up in a "quiet" street with not many other open shops nearby. However by the end of the night we were all very impressed with the selection and quality of our respective dishes. The tuna steak and beef steak went down a treat as did the redfish grill. Yum.

The service was excellent too.

“Ok but average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice place to sit with good and friendly service.
The housewine was good, but my 'selection of the day' a rib-eye steak was not very tasteful and tender. My wive's cod was too rare.
The kides loved their chips and 'bitterballen'.
Mixed feelings.
