Dined here for a treat on a weekend trip to Amsterdam. We sat by the window as the sun was setting and enjoyed the view of the river. The staff were very polite and friendly- we particularly enjoyed our sommelier's enthusiastic descriptions of the wine and all of the staff were great at explaining the dishes to us. We've had...

My wife dined here on the last night of our holiday at the Intercontinental Amstel Hotel and we were genuinely amazed by the food. It was sumptious and delicious and the service from the staff was so pleasant and friendly but attentive as required. The various dishes were creative and so tasty. The chefs deserve high praise for thier food.

Either way, food was excellent, surprising ingredients, delicate preparation and serving. To accompany this excellent food, we ordered a drivers wine menu.... More

The menu was segmented into Rive Droite and Rive Gauche with flavors tending on one side with traditional flavor while the other flowed towards the Far East. But first came the delightful amuse bouche. We enjoyed a popsicle shaped duck mousse topped with white chocolate inspired by local lands. The other amuse bouche was from Asian inspired flavored with shrimp,... More

A beautiful view of the Amstel is only a small part of this dining experience. The food is outstanding -- even an amuse bouche called Tomato of Roger Rassin is amazing. There are two menus, both of which are wonderful. That said, I highly recommend the five course meal and not six courses. It's a lot of food, and a... More
