“Something Great Out Of The Center!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

French expat in Amsterdam I quickly discovered how full the city is with "Brown/Eet/Grand Cafés" that offer a wide range of easy meals with no culinary suprise. Also how, in much of Amsterdam, having dinner in a restaurant was for me downright expensive.

Until I went to La Vina, where I regularly experience the best price/quality dinner. The Chef reinvents French and Spanish dishes with the right twist of modernity without losing the authenticity of their taste.

If you’re overwhelmed by the 3 courses menu, opt for their pinchos and sample a range of delicious bites such as oysters, the artichoke/spinach/parmiggiano dip (my favorite) or the tortilla of the day.

Oh and by the way, all of that is always accompanied by specially selected wines.

So, La Vina...Experience!

“Definitely worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We live near La Vina and go there quite often. It's lovely for a romantic date, dinner with friends or a good glass of wine and nibbles. The service is very good, the staff always have good recommendations for food and wine. The atmosphere is great. Oh, and the chocolate fondant is to die for - don't miss it!!

“Wonderful lunch, very friendly stuff, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We have had our yearly departmental lunch in La Vina Experience this week and it was great in every way. The pre-organisation was very efficient, Jacqueline (the owner) responsive, attentive and friendly, and professional which is a rarity in this business! All my colleagues really liked the four course menu, the wines, the treats. We will certainly go back there. The location is also great, cosy, easy to access, the restaurant has tables outside for al fresco dining weather permitting. Great for both lunch and dinner, for business as well as romantic meals.

“Warm people, good food, great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Last week I had drinks and diner with 13 colleges. Everything was good. Drinks on the terras, and diner was served in a cosy private room in the basement ( wine cellar).
The owners and the staff were warm, the food was just fine. Definitely go back one time soon.
