“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

My partner and I were in Amsterdam for a few days while travelling around Europe and I saw this restaurant on a travel newsletter so I thought it would be a great splurge while in Amsterdam.
The food was a set menu but all the food and ingredients were so fresh and so yummy that you would tell the food was grown with care in their garden. We got to enjoy a lovely salad, a nicely cooked fish and yummy cake for desert.
The beer my partner drank was also locally brewed which made the experience so much more important for the local community
As soon as we arrived, the staff were so nice and greeted us with great smiles and really took care of us.
The decor of the restaurant also added to the experience as we got to enjoy the fantastic sun during the lovely long summers.
I would highlight recommend experiencing this restaurant and the great food it provides

“Nice deco and nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

I love the freshness of the veggie which straight from their glasshouse. Very friendly and helpful staff and my daughter was even invited to make a visit to the kitchen and took photos with the chefs!

“This restaurant is world class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This is everything a restaurant should be; ethical, food grown on the premises, or locally sourced- excellent service and even the chef came out to give a talk on the provenance of the food and shared both his enthusiasm and philosophy of the restaurant that he is clearly passionate
about

The waiter was really brilliant and just there for us and was also clearly engaged in the whole process

A real must if you are in Amsterdam

“some hits and misses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

i had high hopes for this place, some of which were met, but some were not. The service is very good. The entree was delicious as was the dessert, though the latter was questionably presented.the appetizers were a miss. the soup, which was a creme watercress with pork, was good but i couldn't tell if it was meant to be served hot or just the luke warm that it was. also, it had large chunks of pork in it that made it inelegant to eat without trying to cut it. the two salads were the most disappointing for me. Just random things thrown together that ultimately weren't the better for it. however if there's one piece of advice i can give to the owners it would be to buy new dishes. the ones they have are same that they use in my office cafeteria (all beat up and of industrial quality) and it really takes away overall from the experience. if you're to be serving fine food it should be placed on high quality flat ware. or at least ones that haven't been used for several years and are all scratched up.

overall i would still recommend it and the setting and ambiance are quite beautiful. the wine pairing is a good value but the wines themselves are quite unimpressive. the only nice thing is trying wines from areas where you wouldn't normally have them (e.g. The netherlands).

“Great Location and Service, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The greenhouse is amazing and you are encouraged to walk around and check out what they have growing. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is only good. You get very little choice about the menu (the main course for the evening was fish, which I do not eat, so I was offered beef). Dishes were prepared and presented well, but the flavors were a bit bland. The dinner was very expensive, and much more than I would expect for the quality of food. Overall, a nice dinner, but I would not spend that kind of money there again.
