“Smiled the whole time...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Something about the place is just amusing. The concept of having small plates of food on a conveyor belt, traveling past diners who grab and grill whatever they want, itself brought smiles. It was easy to see returning guests knew which table to secure--the ones closest to the open air prep kitchen. Widest choice is there; bypassed items end up on the table of the hungriest at the end.
The staff is the most attentive and helpful, so much so that they made you smile. If you didn't get what you really wanted or needed, it's your fault, not theirs.
The restaurant is aptly named. The view is spectacular especially of the city of Amsterdam.
Easy walk from Central Station and it is next to the new Doubletree.

“Broken glass underfoot despite requests for removal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Very poor value. 35 euros. Nothing restful as you go to a buffet for repetititve badly cooked fries, or boring rice, or salad, to accompany food you have to grill yourself. Your clothes cannot be worn afterwards as they small of charred food. Staff dropped and broke a glass. Chunks were under diner's feet and in the walkway for half an hour. Three requests made for the glass to be cleared. Finally a manager aged about 25 swept it up. No dessert left when we wanted it. Long trek to buffet. Loos downstairs and you risk knocking out another visitor unless you open the loo door very carefully. Other than that no worries.
