“Simpli brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Our family of 4 enjoyed Christmas dinner here. The restaurant was brilliant. The flavours and combinations prepared by the kitchen were outstanding, the "matched" wine list from NZ, France and Italy complemented the food very well, and the service was highly professional, yet friendly. I manage to eat at a number of fine restaurants regularly through my job. This was right up there. Congratulations to all concerned. This certainly was a "fine" dining experience.

“Not as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I was a bit disappointed after dining in this restaurant, maybe an unlucky night. I was there with my wife we had the set menu, the food was ok but nothing special and the portion size to big for a 5 course...
On the service side was a bit slow as that night the restaurant was a bit busy and only 2 service staff where on duty and one of them didn't really look like was there..

“Highly recommended ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

My wife and I ate in this restaurant on November 21st, 2013. We both had a 3 course menu bib gourmand but not the same choices.
The meal was excellent and a most pleasant surprise. The chef manages to balance lovely flavours beautifully. The service was informal and excellent. We had a most enjoyable time and will certainly return on our next visit to Amsterdam.

“Possibly the best meal we have experienced.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This may not be the finest location in Amsterdam, but the flavors and preparations were over the top wonderful. The Concierge at L' Europe Hotel had recommended it and made reservations for us. We selected the Prix Fixe menu for 4 courses and my wife had one starter and I the other, we continued through the whole meal this way and so tasted everything. From the start the chef amazed using delicate and inventive mixes of spices and flavors. Seared tuna rubbed with five spice and curry side flavors. The duck liver and pheasant terrine was exquisite in flavor and texture. Pike-perch and smoke eel tempura was delicate and sauced wonderfully. Ring dove was nice and gamey with risotto beet infusion.
The scallop and lemon sole meuniere was subtle and light. The venison over red cabbage was rich, sweet and spiced to perfection. Dessert was equally subtle and a nice mix. The pistachio ice cream was rich and just small enough a taste to finish the dinner. Chocolate mousse cake was almost overkill.
The restaurant felt like a local haunt but dressed up. Not pretentious nor touristy at all. Don't think you will save money here, but the wines were wonderful, and service excellent.

Not to be missed.
