Description: Restaurant 't Deurtje in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel, preferred inventive light French cuisine with influences from southern Europe and the occasional oriental accent. Owners Kim van Raak and Jeroen Ellermeijer running Restaurant 't Deurtje since 2007. Inside you will find the warm atmosphere of 't Deurtje, outside you can relax on the terrace right on the Amstel, where the boats sail by and the unforgettable view over the water and Ouderkerk. At the rear of the restaurant is our beautiful and secluded garden. Restaurant 't Deurtje thus offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor dining.

“Excellent Meal in nice surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Went here on a business dinner and was pleasantly surprised. From the outside one may not give this restaurant a chance, but look again.... The inside is very nice and the food even better. The menu is not very extensive but quality is high and staff is very nice.

“Charming restaurant in Dutch little town very close to Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

In the charming little town called Oudekerk A/d Amstel, in the Netherlands, there are quite a number of good restaurants.The area is becoming in the last years more and more a paradise for gourmet places. It is just some 30 minutes from Amsterdam by car.

The Duertje (Dutch word for little door) is a small and cosy restaurant located in the margin of the river Amstel, in this little town. Just cross the street and there is the river.

In the summer you can enjoy tables outside and a wonderful scenario in the sunset, with the sun colouring of yellowish/pinkish the sky and the river.

Besides the scenery, food is of high quality and has been improving constantly, becoming more and more creative with French flavours. Portions are also French style (meaning not too big) and the wine list is good. Service is attentive, but as constantly happen in the Netherlands, a bit slow. So, don’t go when in a hurry and you would appreciate the best this place can offer.

“Excellent food, Wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were treated to a "Surprise" menu of some 5 courses. Presentation was excellent, which we find important as one has a tendency to first judge the food by its' appearance. The flavors were creative and somewhat "bold" as opposed to subtle. The wines were wonderful, especially the Carmeniere from Lapostello. Would we go back? Yes, without question as the total experience was very pleasant and satisfying.

“All thrue excelent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Went there for lunch today and we sat on the terrace near the water. Had a starter, main and dessert. The portions are small but the food is very tasteful, beautifully prepared and excellently explained by the waiters.

This is a nice area to go to for getting out of the city center.

Service was very good and on time(don't even know if we would have noticed if it had been slow as at was so nice spying on all the boats passing by ;)

“Beautiful food at the Amstel riverside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had a very nice 5 course dinner with friends here. Every single dish was not only very delicious, but also looked extremely good. With creative combinations and beautiful colors. The service was not bad, but also not extraordinarily good in my opinion. The thing that bothered me was the fact that we were not offered a special wine arrangement to accompany the dishes.
