“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

L'Express is a little, but very nice and pleasant with warm and friendly atmosphere. The cuisine is really greate, nice, relaxing music and staff that makes you feel at home and surrounded by your old friends. The tiramisu was Fantastic!
We really enjoyed this restaurant and with 100% I'll visit it next time. Recommend to everyone!

“great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

One of the best restaurant I have been in Amsterdam... Nice and smiling service, traditional French food, relaxing music... French onion soup should be tasted, better than I tasted in France... I strongly advice!

“Fantastic French cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

L'Express is a little jewel of a restaurant. It looks a little old and outdated on the outside, but when you step through the door, a lovely greeting and fantastic French food awaits you.

Our steak and lamb dishes were cooked to perfection. The lamb especially was melt in the mouth, and a generous order of sides accompanied the dishes. Wine was good quality and affordable.

There is no doubt the restaurant caters to a slightly older clientele, and if you didn't guess this by the decor, the Celine Dion soundtrack gives it away. However the food makes it worth it. Very worth it.

“Don't get the wrong impression.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

From the photo on TA and the name we thought that L'Express was not what we were looking for but as it was just a couple of hundred metres from our Hotel we checked it out. We were pleasantly suprised . It is not a fast food cafe but a restaurant and quite a good one with pleasant attentive staff and lot's of ambience. My only criticism was the limited menu , expecially the fish choice however we enjoyed a shared starter , a couple of mains and coffee's plus a bottle of none house wine. All for E75. Well located and relatively easy to find just a little south of Rembrant Square.
