Amazing food - both sushi bar and restaurant. Excellent service. I stayed at the hotel Okura for 2 nights and went both nights for dinner and once for lunch. All faultless meals. Worth staying at the hotel just to wander downstairs to eat here. Indeed worth coming to Amsterdam just for the treat!

Very warm welcome on arrival. Went for the chef's recommendation menu which was excellent, a particular highlight being minced duck cake in clear fish soup. I could have eaten 10 of those! Good selection of Sake with some guidance to help select. Lovely birthday surprise at the end of the meal. Thank you.

We visited here shortly after getting engaged as a celebration meal. The staff were instantly friendly and welcoming and the restaurant itself is beautiful. We went up to the 36th floor bar before we ate which was also gorgeous with such a good atmosphere and lovely staff. The food was just divine, I absolutely cannot fault. When we booked our... More

Eating at this restaurant for my birthday was an amazing experience. Food was great and service extraordinary. The prices are high but it was worth it. A really unique experience that I would recommend highly for a special occasion.

With one Michelin Star you create not only expectations in quality of food but also in service......It's a missed opportunity to bring in some extra "love & care" into the service of the restaurant. As we say the devil sits in the details and here restaurant management should reflect on performance of all staff and service. Why ask after main... More

The only michelin Japanese restaurant in Europe. It is really Japanese, even the waiters are. Unfortunately due to this they spoke english with quite an accent and it was not easy to understand. The food is good, but you have to love seafood and veggies. I am a lover of French cuisine and therefor it was not always what I... More

I had dinner at Yamazato restaurant early January and I was really impressed. I am a big fan of Japanese cuisine but this was way beyond my expectations. It definitely deserves one Michelin star. All the chosen menu was delicious, very refined with excellent and fresh products. The service was amazing. The waitresses wearing traditional kimonos are splendid and very... More

Surely one of the best Japanese experiences (Kaiseki) we have ever had in Europe. Dinner at Yamazato (after advice from friends) was an experience that will not be forgotten and absolutely worth every penny. The service and hospitality, together with the attention to detail and authenticity, transported us briefly into Japan. Wonderful selection of sake, never seen before. They even... More

Invited by longtime friend & wife being back in Amsterdam after 8 years. We met in the lobby, and headed for the restaurant. Being welcomed by Anton (who had not seen my friend for 8 years and instantly recognized him and his wife) we were directed to our window table. Ambiance was really great, service was impeccable, and sake was... More

Very, very genuine Japanese, must be making tremendous efforts to maintain this quality in Europe. We had Kaiseki course lunch, that was truly Japanese style. Every dish was elaborate, beautifully presented (this is important for genuine Japanese Kaiseki cuisine) and tasty. The only slight dissatisfaction was the number of sushi for finale of the course before the dessert. They only... More
