“Lovely Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Last week we dined here and had a wonderful experience. We made reservations in advance for two at 630 on a Monday night and ended up being the first patrons. The food was very good and tasty but what impressed me most was the welcoming atmosphere and cordiality extended to us. You could walk by the spot and not notice it but if you do not enter you will be missing a charming dining experience. My favorite dinner of the week that we spent in Amsterdam.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant 2 weeks ago. Wonderful service, very friendly staff and terrific food. The limoncello was fantastic and the tasting appetizer for 2 was amazing. Our waitress was kind enough to tell us that the sides were big enough to share and that we'd ordered too much! It was a 40 minute walk along the canal and worth every step!

“Words can not describe how amazing this place is”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I can not even try to provide a review that will give this place the credit it deserves. It is not a beautiful place and one would easily walk by - but ignore that and make a reservation! We had a very friendly waitress who was extremely efficient and very good. We started off with smoked salmon and then moved onto the steak and seabass. The steak was so tender that my husband honestly cut it with his fork. It was delicious and perfectly cooked. My seabass was also perfectly cooked and packed with an incredible flavour. Our wine was beautiful and complemented our dishes perfectly. We also had a side order of green beans and peas that were crisp tender. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better we were brought out the sticky toffee pie which melted our hearts and has left us craving for it ever since. A beautiful mix of sweetness and warmth that I have never experienced. Espresso was also great and finished the meal off perfectly. Absolutely must visit this place when you are in Amsterdam!

“The homemade limoncello was a superb closing for our dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I have to admit, I usually steer away from Tripadvisor restaurant top ratings. But situated in my favourite Amsterdam neighborhood, I just had to pop in.
The menu is homely and to the point, daily specials should get your tastebuds activated. Food is an excellent mix of Vlaamish home cooking with a twist of satisfying a hungry tourist heart. There's room for small surprises even, like my limoncello teaser.
Highly recommendable!
