My wife found this online and I'm so glad we went there. Good central location within the canal belt with lovely staff. Limited but wonderful menu - the strawberry salad starter was fantastic! Didn't have the Ostrich but it's a specialty so I understand! Great value, great food. What more do you need?

We were in Amsterdam for five nights about a week ago. Stumbled upon this restaurant which looked quaint and also had outside tables next to a canal. I had a beautiful strawberry and goats cheese salad followed by a lamb stew and a chocolate apple crumble. It is one of the best meals I have had for ages. I eat... More

We eat here as a last minute choice as it was close to our hotel, The Dylan. It was an excellent restaurant with limited but extremely good menu. I had the veal, ostrich and apple crumble washed down with some fantastic mint tea. The food was top notch, the only slight downer was the wine. We chose a Chenin blanch... More

I met a almost local friend with ties to the restaurant here. He had never eaten here and wanted to try it. I had beef carpaccio and ostrich. It was fantastic. Better than beef. For Amsterdam it was quite inexpensive considering the quality. Highly recommend.

It is divine. Great food, nice staff and venue. The menu offers enough options to satisfy everyone in the group offering ostrich (get it!), fish, vegetarian options. You pick your three courses from a list of about 5 options each and I had a hard time deciding because they were all so tempting. Try to get in early cause there... More

Did not expect South African ostrich meat in the middle of Amsterdam! The menu is however far more than just ostrich. We had the pork belly and fennel salad for starters. Lamb stew was excellent main. Service and atmosphere very good. Liked the energy and vide. A small place so it fills up quickly. A high quality three course meal... More

This is a small, cozy and chilled restaurant by Amsterdams many chanals. They have seating outside and inside. Pretty packed, but service was still good. Local produce, mostly organic. Very, very fresh and tasty. Would especially recommend the lamb (mutton) dish; it's from a local farm who only do organic lamb. Can also highly recommend the fennel salad with goat... More

For our last evening in Amsterdam, we wandered upon this place. The place was small and slightly underground, with the tables quite close together, for a cozy dinner with the other guests. We were seated immediately, and the place was very busy at around 8 pm when we entered. They have a fixed price three course menu for 26.50 euro.... More

Our family (2 adults, 2 teens) had a lovely dinner here. It's a very small place so we were happy to have a reservation. The 3 course meal was €27 and we all enjoyed the food. The hot, crusty bread and garlic butter they brought us started dinner off right! The ostrich steak and all the desserts were delicious (the... More

As an ostrich will put her head in the ground, we walk down a few steps to be cut from the outside world. It is already the second time I ate at De Struisvogel, and both time were great experiences. First, the menu is worth its price as quality of food is good and the quantity enough, because of the... More
