We went to Rosarium last night as a group of six colleagues. We practically froze because the restaurant had no heating. It was minus 7 degrees outside and not a lot more indoors and I honestly believe that if you can't keep your restaurant warm, you shouldn't open. It's not like it doesn't snow EVERY YEAR in Amsterdam or the weather was particularly unusual.
The food was really disappointing and very expensive for the poor quality served. The starter tuna tasted of absolutely nothing and was missing some of the ingredients listed in the description. Main course monkfish (zeeduivel) was served far too cool and was missing one of the main ingredients.
After two courses we had lost the feeling in our feet and we had to leave even though nobody felt they'd really had anything significant to eat. My starter and main each contained no carbohydrate at all and the main in particular was crying out for a bit of stodge to balance out the lukewarm fish.
This place is probably LOVELY when the sun is shining but even if we hadn't frozen the food was poor, tasteless and served at the wrong temperature. VERY disappointing.
Over 300 Euros for six people each eating just two tiny poor quality courses. You can do a lot better even in Amsterdam. The waitress was lovely and tried hard but it just wasn't enough to compensate for the poor food and cold room.
