Very cool restaurant - they surprise you with food. Excellent culinary - you get a lot of starters served to you main dish. Good wines and super friendly service. One starter was served on my hand ;-)

On our last days of travel and for a birthday treat we booked this fabulous restaurant. The food was delicious, fresh and a real twist on Dutch food, everything that they advertise. The service was impeccable. We had the 5 course tasting menu and as each course was delivered we were told about the food we were receiving. We also... More

This was definitely the most unique dining experience we ever had. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Each course was explained to us. We were told the origin of the dish and how it was prepared. There were even a few surprises-one appetizer was made on the back of our hands which we then had to lick... More

I have traveled much and been catered to by some of the best Chefs in the World... but what Chef Luc and Xavier have put together with Bolenius is a one of a kind experience with superb flavor combinations. No doubt this is helped by the fact that the vegatables are fresh from their own garden! Not to mention the... More

We enjoyed the chef menu which was a true experience. Local products which we all know, however we don't use so much, the chef he is truly an artist. All dishes are creative and have very supricing elements. This was the first time in a very long period of time that I am this excited about a menu. A adventure... More

It was a very good and different experience. The waiters were very friendly and the way they presented the food was incredible, ingenious and creative. And the most important it was delicious

I made a reservation at this restaurant partly because it was one of the very few restaurants I could find within a reasonable walking distance of our hotel (CitizenM) that had been reviewed, and which had a table available. It's located in the modern part of Amsterdam, amidst tall office towers and multistory apartment buildings, some still under construction. We... More

Very refreshing.. nice friendly staff. Efficient. Fresh ingredients. Good location. Would be perfect if I had more time to savour the wine. Worth a visit and good setting for business...thankfully we had the weather on our side so enjoyed the outside sitting.

Amazing tasting menu which I would recommend. Some strange ways to serve (one course was delivered to the back of my hand), but all the food was very well presented and very tasty. My highlight was the Ham in Hay, presented on a hot stone with an ear of corn in a vase with dry ice pouring out of it.... More

Had the gastronomic menu with white asparagus. Fantastic! Many tastes and all sorts of presentation variations. Also loved the perfect balance between vegtables (a lot) and meat/fish (just good). So good spot!
