Went to Brasserie Vlamming to celebrate New Year and it exceeded our expectations. The taster starter solved the problem of deciding what to order. One of the best meals we have ever had. Would definitely recommend.

Dear visitor from Dundee, you're right: the Bites-platter (= 3-layer stand with a selection of our starters & fingerfood) is really a nice dish to start your dinner with. We also introduced this in our other restaurant "Vlaming eten & drinken". Thank you for taking time to write this friendly review! Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

Dear visitor, thank you very much for your friendly comments. The duckbreast you mention is 3 hours cooked sous-vide (low temperature/air sealed in a water basin) and indeed is very tender. And of course our staff likes to give our guests a memorable stay with us. Best regards, Frans Vlaming More

My girlfriend and I ate here on 10th Feb and had a superb time. The food was exceptional, washed down with a very good Poully Fume and all served by polite and efficient staff. Our bill was €102 for two people. Thoroughly recommend.

Having spent a few days in Amsterdam, we tried tripadvisor's recommendation, and we were not disappointed. The restaruant was very nice, the staff very friendly. I had the mixed grill, and the steak was my favorite. We had been to the "number 1" steak place the day before and a medium rare steak arrived Pittsburgh Rare (browned on both sides).... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Brasserie Vlaming. Having read the great reviews on here, our expectations were fully met. Nice, comfortable setting, great food (cod and monkfish cheeks and then sticky toffee pudding were both outstanding!) and good service. Cost us £70 for a nice 3 course meal (sharing starter and dessert) with wine but it represented good value... More
