3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

don't get me wrong: it's not a bad restaurant. Service is very good, the menu' has been infused with lot of creativity and culinary research and the ambience remarkable and comfortable. Anyhow, this restaurant aspires to enter in the top scenery of the fine dining in Amsterdam and the price is telling you that already. We had the complete chef... More

In august I went to Bussia with two friends who hadn't been before. The service is always good and attentive, without being stuck-up. The food is very good and well-prepared with enough attention to detail without it being all about the presentation. Espresso afterwards was great as well. Definitely recommend this gem in the nine streets!

Multiple small plates, all bursting with flavour and wonderful presentation. Small wine list, but all chosen well.

OK I was not ready for the Wow that followed. What a treat. just perfect all around, from the kind, attentive, smiling service, to the understated but chic decor, to the... More

Went there for dinner on a rainy day. It was four of us and we got a table upstairs. Our waitress was both service minded and funny and made our evening perfect. The food was very good, loved the taste combos.

We found Bussia whilst wandering round trying to find somewhere to eat. What a great find it was! We chose a four course tasting Menu which was fantastic. The stand out point for us was the service, the waitress was great, explaining each dish to us and giving us just the right amount of space between each course. It was... More

We stumbled across Bussia whilst exploring Amsterdam and if you are looking for Fine Dining - come here. Everything stated in the previous reviews we can vouch-for, the food, service and ambience is set-up to deliver a first-class dining experience. We just had a single course which was amazingly good and reasonably priced. However, we did feel 'out of place'... More

We had the 4 course menu and were very happy with it. The dishes were innovative without being pretentious. All well prepared and very tasty. Portion sizes were good too, filling but not too much. Service was attentive and explained all the dishes. Price was good (not cheap, but very acceptable for what you got). Highly recommended!
