“Best Meal in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

My wife and I (mid 60's) ate at this restaurant two times because it was so good. (March 2014) Each time my wife really enjoyed a shrimp dish that she thought was one of the best she had. If you go before 6pm you will find Blaine (Head cook) and his staff eating out in front. By the way he is from Texas and very friendly. We enjoyed our talks before each meal. The food is out standing, the price reasonable for Europe. The atmosphere is very pleasant. All the staff is helpful, patient and friendly. We only hope Blaine consider opening a branch in Boston

Dear Billyla,

Thanks for your review here on TripAdvisor. It is always good to see guests return while they are visiting.

I do need to correct you that we usually have dinner at 17:00 unless there are reservations, and you must have seen one of those sunny days, not often that one can eat outside this time of the year!

I will pass your complimentary words on to the staff, and I have to say that Amsterdam is just fine, not going for a Boston branch.

Hope to see you on another visit.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We contacted months prior 4 restaurants listed as gluten free. Seasons were the only reply and sent copy menu. It looked sper and we pre booked. The restaurant is located in a nice Jordaan Street. It is nicy laid out, furnished and great decor. The menu covered all tastes; it had fish, chicken, steak, and an out of this world risotto. We choose three courses for a set price, the food was wonderful and the coffee the best ever. It was so goodvwe went back a second night.

Yes we will go back next time in town. It was busy both nights so suggest pre book.

Dear Rinso84,

Thanks for your review here on TripAdvisor.

I am surprised to see sometimes, how difficult it is for restaurants to reply to emails to guests. It is by the way how we get more than 50% of our reservations. Gluten Free menus are not that difficult to make and most all menu''s allow for gluten free. We have a number of compliments on the risotto and glad to hear that you enjoyed it.

Yes we do recommend reservations as this time of the year is very busy. Look forward to seeing you again!

Kind regards

Blaine

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Go for the 2 for one special -- good value. Try the caramelized onion tart! One of the best things I ate in Amsterdam. Might want to make a reservation as the restaurant is small.

Dear CoastalGardener,

Thanks for the short review here.

While our 2 for 1 Early Bird Special is good value, our regular prices are also quite fair. But Travelers note, this special is popular and an online reservation is needed to take part.

The homemade caramelized onions have been a special dish we run featuring more seasonal dishes, which now includes Asparagus and Goat;s Cheese. Glad you liked it,

Again thanks for your comments and hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

Blaine

“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We booked for an early supper - did this online. The food was excellent, fresh, well presented and very large portions too. Service was very good and we were made to feel very welcome.

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We had a very nice meal here, and it was good value for 2 courses. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. The menu was nice and varied with a touch of Asian inspiration. The miso salmon was flavoured to perfection and was nice and dark pink in the middle.

It gets very crowded, and the tables are quite close together so navigating to the back of the room is a tad complicated, but once your ensconced in your seat it's fine.

Book a table in advance because we watched tons of people being turned away as they were fully booked.

Dear SuzyCatPope,

Thanks so much for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed yourself and always great to hear about staff welcoming and helpful.

Your words of advice about booking a table in advance is a good one. The last few weeks have seen us sending many guests away as we get really busy during the Spring Season. We do take a certain number of reservations, but do hold a few table for those who just might walk in.

We hope you make it back to see us again and thanks once more for the nice review!

Kind regards

Blaine
