“Really Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We loved it. Fine dining at very fair prices. Nice setting on a canal if weather is fair.
Only forewarning is that portions are euro-minimalist. However, the tastes and presentation made that small criticism. It was perhaps our best dinner in A-dam.

“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Van Vlaanderen is a classy looking place with an elegant dining room and in the back a terrace along the water. We came for the set menu but were disappointed by the slow service between courses. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. It was busy because of the special restaurant week but that is no excuse for a professional establishment.

“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..
