“Mixed feelings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The new concept is really nice and I enjoyed the evening. We had a reservation at 8 and had to wait at the bar till 8:30 before our table was ready, I just don't like such things. The menu is great, a few dishes were not available, but the things we ordered were so tastefull! Two times a waiter was at our table to tell us the wine and one dish were not available. We didn't ordered these things and the messages were for the table nex to us, so we were not the only dissapointed table.
The service could be upgrade a bit, but the dishes are excellent!

“"Simple yet impressive"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We dined here for dinner and had an excellent experience. Most of the dishes are between €15-€20 euro and the desserts are €8 each. Service was attentive, cheerful and friendly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food and the concept are superb!!! the service is a little bit so so they have a little time for you you have to ask things for example when we arrived we have to ask for a drink and again for our food to order after that it went oke.

“High-end bistro dining at a great price. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved our first meal at Ron's. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and managed to organize the best gluten-free bread my wife had ever eaten.

The menu is simple but delicious - about 20 different plates of all sorts of flavors, which allowed to enjoy a leisurely meal over 2 hours.

For the quality do the food, the price was very good. Our total bill came to 216 Euros, but that included two glasses of champagne and two bottles of wine.

Definitely a must-see.

“Impressed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Went here with clients on a day trip from London who had been once or twice previously. They explained about the restaurant/chef previously having held a Micvhelin star at the site so we were looking forward to the experince. The restaurant is quite elegant without being over fussy. The welcome on arrival was very warm and inviting and service throughout was professional, friendly and helpful with some of the dishes having to be explained. All the dishes are slightly larger than starter plates and there is around 20 or so to choose from with a wide variety of meats, fish and vegetables - we were advised that two plates should be sufficient for a lighter meal or three if we were hungry. Each dish was €15 so all very siple. A sample of the dishes we enjoyed was potato salad wrapped in smoked salmon and topped with a poached egg and hollandaise (delicious!), goose fois grois with apple salad, edible flowers and a brioche bun, pitta stuffed with lamb and lamb offal, seared duck breast with black pudding, cabbage and veal jus and it was all quite stunning and three courses each were plenty. All of the dishes were beautifully presented - Michelin star standard in my opinion. We washed it all down with a couple of bottles of delicious Sancerre however I did not see the price of the wine. The restaurant itself was a little quiet and it would have been good to see how it played out if more of the tables were taken, however I would recommend it to anyone visiting the centre of Amserdam - it's really different and in a very good way!
