This is a wonderful experience. There is a lovely boat ride to the Island where there are generous snacks and the chance to drink island produced ale. This time from berries. It was a bit weird, but ok. The boat is met by staff with...More

We were looking for something a little off the beaten path on our third visit to Amsterdam and Vuurtoreneiland fit the bill and then some! First, the classic ferry to the island set the tone for the whole evening with it's vintage vibe, simple but...More

It is not easy to make a reservation, exactly 2 months in advance, but you will be amply rewarded with a vintage boat trip starting 18.30 hrs (with aperitif and snacks) to the island where a 4 course biological dinner will be served, accompanied by...More

We had eaten at De Kas (another once in a lifetime meal) in Amsterdam, and heard about this trip/meal so reserved 2 seats two months prior to the day we wanted to eat--you need to figure out how to go online right when it is...More

This is not a difficult review to leave... this is a MUST for anyone visiting Amsterdam either in a group or as a couple. The staff are fantastic, can’t do enough for you and so well organised. As for the food, drink and experience generally...More

Don’t get me wrong, amazing experience, beautiful island, amazing service (rare in Amsterdam), amazing wines... BUT, food a true let down. For €85, you get tomato, bread, some vegetables and potato. Small portions and we definitely did not feel full at the end. The staff...More

Vuurtoreneiland is a well organized dining experience. Book about a month in advance, pay EUR 100 per person. That includes a boat ride to the island and back, snacks and drinks onboard, and a 5 course menu with paired wines. The boat leaves from quay...More

Different concept than any other. You need to make a reservation way in advance. Grab the boat to a light tower island and have dinner in a bunker during the winter or glass house during the summer. Feels like a school trip when on the...More

As far as I know they only have dinners. Having been there in the winter and summer season I wouldn’t recommend taking the kids unless they are teenagers. It’s a long evening with the boat trip taking roughly 1 hour each way... More
