Kartika is an authentic Indonesian restaurant near Vondel park in Amsterdam. Services is friendly, atmosphere relaxed and the food is very delicious. On the menu is a choice of banquet or like a sampling meal of about 10 different dishes with dessert included. Highly recommended. The dishes were mouth watering.

When I lived in Amsterdam last year, this was the one place I recommended to everyone who was visiting. I also took several people there and it was always a great experience. Super polite and service-minded staff and their menus are amazing. When I went there with my parents they were a bit blown away and nothing usually really impresses... More

We visited here during a weekend stay in Amsterdam. The restaurant was packed but the super efficient waiters found us a table. We had a rijstafel between and it was magnificent - each dish a delicate combination of flavours and experiences. I'll definitely be back - best Indonesian meal I've ever eaten. Highly recommended.

Went here for a quick dinner. Even on Tuesday evening this place was fully reserved! But since we arrived early in the evening, we got ourselves one of the reserved tables for an hour. They offer four types of tasting menu's, which are available for 2 people or more. A la carte was also available, but since we were pretty... More

This is the kind of place I remember from the Amsterdam of my youth and as we passed it each day on the No1 tram route, it kept waving me back and I knew I had to visit it. I'm glad I did because we weren't disappointed. The servers followed the owner's example and were really attentive and helpful eg... More

We specifically chose an Indonesian restaurant which didn't look too fancy or pretentious but rather served good food in a relaxed atmosphere. This place was perfect. Service was incredible, the food (banquet style) was delicious and portions were sizeable.

This is a small restaurant, tables a bit close together, and the tables are really too small for rijsttafel with its multiple dishes. The two young servers did a great job. They were both pleasant and friendly and the dishes came out quickly. It was about 30 euros per person for the large rijsttafel, pretty standard in Amsterdam. No draft... More

We found the food at this restaurant to be very tasty. The owner is a real live wire and we liked the place so much we went back for a second time. The restaurant was always crowded but we were able to "share" a table with another couple.
