One of my favourite restaurants ever. The meal was full of surprises and very pretty plates. The wine pairing was fantastic. The service brilliant and mostly unobtrusive. For the quality of the food, drink and service it is well worth the money! Don't do too much research before you go, you'll ruin the surprise. The menu changes regularly. Have already... More

Amazing place, we dined from 18:00-22:00 with the 6 course menu that also had two other small courses pre the actual meal, so 8 in all! Great Food, Great Experience and Great Service

We dined there in November and it was one of the highlights of that trip, so we booked again. On our second visit in August we were once again glad that we did . Everything was perfect, a feast for the eyes and palate. We had the 6 course and one of us had the wine tasting. We then found... More

It seems many reviewers here seem satisfied with the theatre of a Michelin meal. Some state it is only a "matter of time before they are given a star" - I would disagree. While the staff are charming and the food is high on concept - I think Johannes will need to focus on the food at the centre of... More

My second time at Johannes and once again the food was superb. Personally I wouldn't go to Amsterdam without visiting Johannes. One thing we noted is how expensive it has become compared with our first visit 2 years earlier shortly after they opened. The food alone was double the cost. At a guess I imagine they were trying hard to... More

We were recommended this restaurant during a short trip to Amsterdam. This restaurant does not have a Michelin star yet, I say yet, because it is only a matter of time. The cuisine was wonderful and very dynamic. Highly creative dishes in a contemporary fashion. We had the tasting menu which left us in wonderment. After 6 courses, we were... More

Yes, to review this restaurant, I borrowed a line from Peter Griffin's review of "The Godfather" in "Family Guy." Here's why: this restaurant was seemingly more concerned about the presentation of the food than the actual taste. Cases in point include the Dutch cheese in a cocoa shell "hidden" among like-colored rocks. Cute, but the cheese was too sharp for... More
