I have been hearing about 't Kalfje for donkeys years. It must have been 30 years ago that I was in there. The place - now called Klein Kalfje - has really changed for the better. Staff is still friendly and they know how to...More

I used to come here regularly. Today was definitely my last time. Being served by a boy hardly out of puberty who mumbles his answers and seems wholly unfocused is not my idea of a pleasant lunch. Having to wait for your drinks for 15,...More

The restaurant hasn’t changed on the superficial level: view, decor, vine card, etc. but they seem to have lost the plot with the new menu. They have a slightly modified menu with new over-priced additions like Pokebowl. Living in Buitenveldert you have many better options...More

The restaurant took 2h30 to serve salads. Coffe machine broken. Didnt take visa or any international credit cards for that matter. Slow and poor service. Stay away from this place.

I tried to have a coffee on the lovely terrace but found them closed with a note stuck to the window, closed due to bankruptcy. I would check before you cycle here...

The problem is Amsterdam has many really good places to eat & this on - a little outside town beside the Amstel river is adequate but unexceptional. I had the 'house speciality' Veal meatball - which was good - served with salad & sourdough bread...More
