“Unique restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

My husband and I had lunch at De Kas to celebrate his birthday. The experience was unique and the greenhouse effect was nice. While the food was nothing too fancy/memorable, it was not bad. The service was great and location/garden interesting. Definitely worth a visit for the experience.

“We were not as impressed as many others seem to be.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The theory is compelling: grow your own organic veggies and try to stay with locally sourced foods. We thought that for the most part the meals here were overpriced and lacking in taste. Clearly, others feel differently, but for my taste stick with Elsa's Cafe across the street at the tram stop. It's fun to take a tour of the greenhouse while you wait for your table. The location in a public park is sorta rural, and the enormous greenhouse where much of the produce is grown, is an easy-to-find landmark. Take the #9 tram from Centraal Station.

“Best food fantastic environment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Fresh organic food grown on the premises. The set menu is based on what they can get fresh that day, and the wine matches were superb. Up there with any dining experience I've had in the world. The decor was amazing too, like eating in a greenhouse, and the service and staff were excellent.

“Home-grown food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A prix-fixe dinner. A little pricy, but the service was excellent, food prepared well and presented well. Get there early, ask to see the "garden hot house and the outdoor garden" where the veggies are grown (also grown out-of-town), ask why the brick chimney is still attached to the hot-house style building.
