Bordewijk was on top of my list for years. The chef came to our table and recommended the menu. Everything was delicious and creative: the amuse from homemade liverwurst, the fish, the lamb and the dessert with strawberries. The sauces are so good you wished they could bottle it and sell it. The restaurant itself is beautiful with a great... More

We went there for business dinner, the place is small but nice atmosphere, service was very good too. We liked the food and enjoyed the evening. It became quite noise at the end of the evening with one group, as you are all sitting in one "open space" this could be an issue. But we had fun and would come... More

Best food we had in Amsterdam. We only ordered seafood and it was a very special and yummy meal. Very creative and solid dishes. It was a very nice touch that the chef came out to introduce each dish on the menu after our amuse bouche. The service was unpretentious and attentive. The desert was some of the best I... More

Restaurant Bordewijk is one of those restaurants in the Jordaan which are always good, the service is typical Amsterdams: Loose , kind but also direct.The food is original,french orientated but with a dutch modern twist. Take the 3 or 4 coursemenu, its very good value for money. the wines are excellent as well.close to a michelin star!

As a restaurant owner in London I can honestly say that the owners of this fantastic establishment have got it right! All the dishes on the menu sounded so great so the waiter offered us a tasting menu which was stunning and allowed us to try several dished. Highly recommended!

If you love fresh seafood and game cooked to near perfection you need to find your way into the Jordaan and find this little modern styled restaurant. Located on Noordmarkt Straat on the edge of the Prinsen canal has a lively atmosphere and good service. But the food is the real star. The pumpkin ravioli with brown shrimp was fantastic.... More

We have been in this restaurant since the opening day. Not every year, but very regular. It's amazing that it has still the same owner and design. Food has always been excellent and all the wines are great. Owner/chef can be a little grumpy once in a while, but he is presenting his menu and the specialties that you get... More

A large airy room with well spaced tables, friendly and knowledgeable service, a modern and inventive kitchen, good ingredients, large portions and reasonable prices - what more could you ask for. I had one of the best pieces of meat (an Irish Rib) I have ever eaten. A great place for good informal eating.

Visited last month for the first time and we will be sure to return. The food was excellent and so was our service. Both the headwaiter and the chef came out to our table to visit and talk about the menu. Wine selection was excellent too. Delicious and relaxed meal! We actually ended up having a 4 hour dinner!

We made a booking for this restaurant at 7pm, possibly a little early by Dutch standards. So when we arrived, there was no one else in the restaurant -- always disconcerting. Nevertheless, we had the full attention of the staff, and had the menu explained to us, with the chef coming out to explain the restaurant's special menu for the... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
