“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Food was excellent, one of the few places in the area that was busy from 7pm to late. Staff were a bit stuffy at first but friendly towards the end. 2 courses each with wine cost us £90, so not a cheap night out but nothing is cheap in Amsterdam!

Dear Rachel D,

Thanks for your quick review here on TripAdvisor. Great to see you write, "Food was excellent."

Sometimes it takes a little bit of time to warm up to guests as you never know if guests want that type of attention when the first arrive, especially couples dining out. I can assure you at thee nd of the day we have quite "non-Stuffy" staff working with us.

I do think you meant €90 not 90 pounds, and also as you noted nothing is really cheap, but we do feel we offer value for money!

Again thanks for taking a moment to post a comment and we do hope to see you again.

Kind regards

Blaine

“Cute spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We got an outside table and really enjoyed our meal. Three courses was a good deal and they had reasonably priced wine as well.

“Amsterdam Gem in the Jordaan area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We had to wait 2 days to get a reservation for this wonderful restaurant on Herenstraat just on the edge of the Jordaan area and it was well worth it. A small restaurant with about 12 tables and a menu that offers selections that are best described as fusion cuisine. Appetizers include deconstructed Caesar salad, fire shrimp,paprika soup with Thai lemongrass and carpaccio, scallops served three ways. Main dishes include Chicken Tikka Massala,,spring pasta dish,spicy garlic shrimp with noodles,roasted fowl with masaman curry sauce. Gives you a sense of the interesting combinations available in I addition to Dorade or steak. We were a group of five and we were all pleased with our choices. Deserts were excellent and included in the prix fixe menu of 32 euros. Wine list was fine. Waitstaff friendly and helpful. English menu available. Reservations highly recommended and a wonderful dining experience awaits you.

Dear Marty,

Thanks for your kind review here on TripAdvisor for other travelers to read.

I have to admit after reading your review made me realize how many items we have that are unique to a menu. The menu tends to have a taste of the food I have been lucky enough to taste during international travels.

But the food in not enough to carry a restaurant and glad to hear that you found the Waitstaff friendly and helpful.

Sorry that you had to wait to get into see us, but this time of the year it is quite busy, especially weekends and we do recommend reservations.

Hope to see you again and thanks again for the review.

“Friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I dined fairly early on a quiet Monday evening, but would recommend booking beforehand to make sure you get a table (the place was quite busy when I walked by in the weekend).
The food was delicious with fresh ingredients (scallops as a starter and dorade with spring vegetables as a main course), the staff was friendly and the owner took some time to come by and have a chat. As a solo female traveller I felt quite welcome and relaxed. I will remember it next time I'm in Amsterdam.

Dear Solveig,

Thanks for taking moment to post a review here for other travelers to read. Great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us.

We do use only fresh ingredients and sometimes do run out of times on busier days. The scallops and Dorade are great fish dishes, light yet full of flavor.

Thanks again and we hope to see you when you pass through again.

Kind regards

Blaine
