“Wannemakers blijft het goed doen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Went back twice since my first visit in Summer 2013. The guys of Wannamaker are at it in terms of hospitality and cooking. They are keen to please but have a capability to leave you alone as well, a slichtly rare combination in Holland. Get them to fix you up with a catered boat trip next time you're in a wealthy group of 6-12. The game did not disappoint. Highest marks for the red cabbage.

“A great romantic venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Its only just over an hour from East Midlands to Amsterdam and we found the most delightful place to have a leisurely and romantic meal. Alongside a delightful canal surrounded by fabulous architecture, Jochem Dekker and his team made it so enjoyable along with the excellent food (the beef fillet was superb) and wine and a great atmosphere.
No pressure on the table and we were there all night, it also helped that it was fantastic value for money and not expensive.
Definitely one to try when you're in Amsterdam.
Couldn't recommend it enough
Thanks for a great experience Jochem

“2 Ladies, rainy Sunday in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stumbled in to Wannamakers on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The staff was great and engaged in conversations of things to do locally. The lunch was delicious! We got a little education on beer while waiting for our lunch. Highly recommend!

“Visited four times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Group of three in Amsterdam for a week and serendipitously ended up at Wannemakers four times. Brunch one time, lunch twice and then once for drinks. Great location, quiet but just off Dam Square. Great style, both inside and out, food was delicious, great service, attended to all our requests with a smile. The owner was present on all visits and welcomed and remembered us on each visit. Will look forward to a return visit.

“Fabulous place, lovely food and such a welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We visited Wannemakers in September 2013 for dinner. It was the last evening of our trip so I was really hoping it would be a special place and I was not disappointed.The food was lovely and we all enjoyed it immensely. The thing that sets this restaurant apart from others is the warmth of the welcome we received and how well they looked after us during the evening. The staff are passionate about their food (and drink!) and genuinely warm, friendly and funny. We felt like we'd been going there for years! I would definitely go back and will definitely recommend it. As a previous reviewer said - it is a gem!
