“A perfect cozy dinner out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2015

Stumbled on this gem as we were looking for a nice night out in Amsterdam. From the moment we sat down, the staff made us feel welcome and taken care of. We had some wonderful wine on our server's recommendation and then both of us ordered a 4-course chef's special. It was perfect from start to finish. All the staff is wonderful, helpful and informed. We could not recommend this more highly!

“A Hidden gem ... ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2015

We booked at Cacerola on recommendation and we're not disappointed.

There were some initial issues with the booking (which was done on line) but these were dealt with superbly - we waited in the neighboring bar, had a drink and the restaurant came to collect 15 minutes after are table was booked for (& they offered to cover the drinks cost)

The restaurant has a great ambience, small (about 25 covers) and is predominantly unchanged in decor since the building was opened as a restaurant in the 1950's.

The menu is quite small (4 starters & mains - plus the chefs choice menu) but this is reflected in the quality of all the dishes.

The food is simply fantastic - tasty, different combinations, with a refined homecooked vibe about it.

All the staff are great, friendly and make it a great experience - I heartily recommend !!!

“Uncharted waters..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2015

are where new lands are found. We stumbled across La Cacerola on the way back from a days shopping and loved the look of it so booked a table. The rustic atmosphere, cast iron spiral staircase and plaster walls were lovely. Two of our party had a three course Dutch taster menu and by the end of the meal, I think we all wished we had! The food was sublime from the pumpkin with gratinated beef with parmesan starter, to the beef cooked to perfection, followed by a "to die for" chocolate pudding. The wines were also fabulous - we went for the waiting staff's recommendation and neither red nor white disappointed us. The service was exceptional without being intrusive. All in all - a delightful evening. Incidentally - we asked the proprietor to recommend a restaurant for the second night and his choice was perfect. Well done.

“Fantastic New Years Eve Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2015

We went here on New Years Eve and were very pleased that this is the restaurant that we chose.
The staff were attentive, had a great sense of humour and made us feel very welcome.
The food was sensational.
It was a five course menu, and I agree with the the last review on here that the pumpkin puree & braised beef was fantastic. I would happily eat this every day of the week.
Every course they gave us was delicious and we left feeling that full up that we could not eat another thing for a day.
I cannot fault anything about this restaurant and will make sure that we definitely go back again if we are ever in Amsterdam.
Many thanks to you all for making our New Years Eve so special with such delicious food and service.
