We had a great meal at Bussia with my wife and daughter. The service was very friendly and welcoming. We had the tasting menu, which included some delicious dishes. The wine selection was also outstanding. The restaurant is located in a very nice area, for a pleasant stroll before or after dinner.

We had our "high-end" dinner here based on the recco of our hotel, and were not disappointed. We had the six course tasting menu, and while some dishes were better than others, all were good. Our servers were wonderful, and the pacing of the meal was perfect for us, since this was our evening. Many pretty people, very pretty restaurant;... More

This was my third visit to Bussia and I was expecting the 'wow' experience of the prior visits. The mezzanine table was nice and three of our four dishes were pleasant enough. My cod main course was overly fussy with 'skin fins' and liver balls (not in the menu description) 'swimming' in the sauce. The 'prosecco & fruit' aperitif was... More

I've been living in Amsterdam for three years, and this is the first time I was completely in love with the food in a restaurant, with no reservations. We went with my boyfriend for our two year anniversary this evening - yes, I'm writing the review on the same day, that is how much I liked it. We had the... More

The Netherlands is renowned for its excellent restaurants and quality of food. My wife and I booked Bussia as we fancied a high end Italian restaurant and we were not disappointed. We had the 6 dishes menu, which is made up from the chefs selection for the day with matching wines. If you are looking for a restaurant to make... More

We dined here for NYE. The staff were wonderful, so so friendly, helpful and explained every course to us. The setting was lovely and romantic. A little bit of a shame to be sat next to the fire hose but it wasnt a problem. The food was delicious and looked beautiful, especially the duck the ravioli and the choc and... More
