This restaurant is a great place for French style food in Amsterdam, combining friendly service and exceptional 2 stars Michelin food quality with an environment not that fancy or snobbish as happen sometimes in Michelin star restaurants.
My family and I like the place for celebrations and last january we celebrated my husband's birthday there. They started with some amazing "amuse bouche" (small pre-apetizers), which are the main reasons we keep coming back. Those have the element of surprise, either with the way they are presented as well as the combination of flavours and taste. Wine list is quite good and the main dishes never disappoint. To finish a meal they have this huge wonderful trolley for desserts, that they unfold in front of you with an incredible array of options, as well as coffee, with nice small biscuits/chocolates, of course.
It is expensive as other Michelin star restaurants, but all in all it's more of an experience than a meal. Not to miss if you are visiting Amsterdam. It is located in the top floor of Okura Hotel, adding a nice view of the city.
