As other reviewers have pointed out, the restaurant is beautifully located on the Amstel and has a lovely terrace when the weather is accommodating. Parking is available in the square and if you are a little early, i'd recommend a short walk through the Ouderkerk old village high street. The menu is very contemporary, but does evoke traditional flavors. Great service, very polite and helpful staff and a very good wine selection, even by the glass. A wonderful place if you want to take people out for a nice meal without having to go all the way to the center of Amsterdam.
