this is an excellent restaurant with warm welcoming and helpful service - and the cooking is superb

we found it by accident when staying at the hotel de filosoof in the museum quarter in Amsterdam - it is now on their highly recommended list!

we had the surprise menu - the cooking was far and away the best we sampled in the overtoom straat area - and the wine was good too. there was no pressure to order or sample a large amount of food, in fact, they didn't mind if we just 'shared a spring roll'!

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I've been to Fan's Kitchen twice now, once with my SO and once with family, and we will definitely be back for more.
The first time we had the surprise menu, which was delicious. The surprise menu does not have a set number of courses, which also added to the experience :) All of the dishes have very different flavours and textures, you can tell that the chef really enjoys cooking and likes to experiment with combining flavours and ingredients. One of the chef's successful experiments is the sushi, which I highly recommend. The second time we went we chose a la carte and shared our dishes. The black bean chicken was especially good, with a great depth of flavour. The service is excellent as well, so nothing but praise for this quiet restaurant.

“Surprise Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

After a warm elcome we have chosen out of the three surprise menus the top one with a lot of fish, shells, sushi and meat. The selected excellent Sancerre white wine was also top of the range..
The Surprise menu that we selected was a six course menu with esquise food which both tasted like heaven and pictured like modern art. The service was excellent and the waitresses very well explained the food and also gave advice in which order to eat for example the various sushi´s.
