I stayed outside of Amsterdam with a friend for four days, and we stumbled across the Colijn while on a walk one night. We stopped in the next day to check it out and the staff was beyond welcoming, the food was absolutely delicious and...the prices were more than fair. We loved it so much we returned for dinner that night and lunch the next day. They took care of us at night on New Year's Eve without a reservation and went out of their way to treat us with as much respect as everyone else. It truly was an incredible restaurant with wonderful management and owners.More

Excellent venue, food and service!! I was staying near Schipol Airport for a business trip and searching for a good dining experience near my hotel. I was fortunate to come across this little gem, which did not disappoint. I arrived at 740pm for dinner without...a reservation on a Tuesday night and a nice table for two near the fire was available. Our server was both courteous and prompt. I ordered the bisque which as full of herbs and complimentary flavors. I had the shrimp as my main dish and it was also fantastic. I will definitely visit again on my next stay. If you are on the fence about the restaurant, please just go. You will thank me later.More

A friend suggested to go here for lunch. It was lunchtime and not the whole restaurant was open. It was pretty full but fortunately staff managed to squeeze us in. The place is clearly popular, so reserve if you can! We both had the satay,...which came with all the traditional Indonesian trimmings, and chips. It really was delicious and I wouldn't hesitate going back! I liked the modern open kitchen, and would also like to compliment the waiting staff who were all very pleasant and efficient.More

We needed a reasonable dinner in Amstelveen Zuid, and stumbled on Colijn. The restaurant is divided into 3 separate areas, each with its own character. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. Our only criticism was the very limited vegetarian...choices, but this is apparently being addressed. Worth a visit.More

During the summer months they have changing menu's. Today I was lucky as I love gamba's. The BBQ Gamba's where perfect. Not chewy, not rubbery but just perfect as they should be. Accompanied with fresh veggies for my daily intake. I already messed up my...plate for the perfect picture, but the food was great.More

Nice food. Not very special but nice. You can sit outside, that is ok. If you are in the neighbourhood and looking for a place to eat. This is okay.
