Knowing Amsterdam very well I was a bit sceptic about the restaurant, but after having read the excellent ratings on tripadvisor I gave it a try and booked a table for 5 with French friends that had never been outside of France before. We had an additional person joining us which was no problem as we could pull up an... More

Dear visitor, indeed the look of the Irish Coffee is not always perfect: sorry for that. For sure we will improve that. I myself shall the coming period order every night one: I don't think it will mean a punishment to me...

We booked Brasserie Vlaming on the strength of its reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. We were a party of 8 and all of us enjoyed the choices that we made from the menu which included tuna, and steak. We were given a very warm welcome - it was that extremely warm weekend at the very beginning of... More

Dear guest, indeed we try to avoid that people order too much side dishes: it's a pity if we have to throw food away for which you also paid! Better for enviroment (and your bill). The steak is an USDA certified Black Angus and the tuna is Albacore (MSC certified, sustainable). Hope to see you back some time! Best regards,... More

This is for two people and it shows off the best of the cuisine. Followed by a simple but excellent steak and truly divine chips (french fries). We found it by accident and were lucky to get in. Not cheap. €18.5 for a carafe of wine. Worth it.

Dear visitor, indeed € 18,50 for a carafe of ½ litre (= € 27,50 per bottle) is not very cheap. But I'm glad you found it worth the price! I suppose you had the First Sighting, Shiraz from Elim - South Africa, which we originally selected to drink together with the fried duck breast. The taster is our "Bites platter",... More

The food was delicious, the service (Hanna gets a special mention) was perfect, overall a restaurant that I would recommend without hesitation and deserving of the Number One accolade in Amsterdam once more. The restaurant has only 50 covers but is neatly laid out with just the right ambiance. I look forward to returning on my next journey to Amsterdam.

I was a bit skeptical of the overwhelming glowing reviews of this establishment. However, I have to say that my dining experience was exceptional. The restaurant is operated by the owner, his daughter and son. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly. I sat alone at the bar and enjoyed excellent food at a reasonable price.

Dear visitor, I don't hope our success indeed will be just a hype, but last for much longer time. It's great fun to see that also "single" guests like you enjoy our food, atmosphere and service. You're right, the building is an old V.O.C.-warehouse from approx. 1612 and called after one of the V.O.C.-sailing boats: "Liefde" (= Love). Thank you... More

We had a fine meal here at Vlaming. The service and friendliness of the staff, chef and owner was a real highlight. Very warm and nice people.

Dear visitor, I already replied to your review concerning our "eetcafé": hopefully next time you will like both places the same. I'm afraid I don't entirely understand your remark "bland piece of fish", but the "cooked to perfection" part makes me believe you meant this positively. Thank you as well for your kind comments.

I visited this restaurant for my wife's birthday after reading reviews on trip advisor. Starter was a mixed sharing plate of small dishes. Chunky Chicken soup was a triumph. Mains were basic, but exceptionally well executed. Separate sides are required to be ordered. Which is a shame. I don't like this concept. However, waiting staff advice and attentiveness was exemplary.... More

Thank you dear guest for your kind review. Indeed not everybody likes the "concept" of ordering the sidedishes seperately, but herewith we manage that people just order what they really want (portions big enough for two) and we don't throw away too much. Better for the environment ànd for your bill!! Yes, please come back and again and... Best regards,... More

We usually go to Seasons when in Amsterdam, but a quick look at Tripadvisor made me want to try here for a change, particularly when it is just round the corner.
