This was the 3rd lockdown menu we have had and it was my favorite. We are vegetarian and every course was a delight. Cauliflower on the barbecue has always been a disappointment before as it’s tricky to get right and not soggy or bitter -...this was perfect and delicious! How do the get the hens egg so it’s hot but still runny? Loved the peas with asparagus too. I can never make a foam but we just ate the sausjes which are prefect. The ravioli was hearty for a main and the sharp sweet dessert a superb end to the meal. Except for the foam, it was very easy to follow the instructions and prepare. I could imagine doing this for a dinner party even after lockdown but don’t worry Raoul, we will be back to you as soon as we can, to eat in your delightful courtyard!More

As Easter is going to be too busy for us, we decided to try the Easter brunch on the Friday before. What a treat! We enjoyed it all. From the bagel with salmon to the quiche, the sweets and salads, the spelt bread and croissants,...vitella tonato, cheeses and charcuterie, every item was great. Simply magnifique! Well worth it and we are really thinking about ordering something else which the great team of Bridges is offering on their site to take home and enjoy. This way, at least we are able to experience the best they have, until we are able to sit down and be there in person again to enjoy a marvelous lunch or dinner. Thank you! NE and familyMore

It was my girlfriend's Birthday and as we were staying in amsterdam, i decided to book a table here for her dinner. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and even so, we were kindly greeted at the front door. The clerk took my...camera bag and our jackets for safe keeping and ushered us to the bar. Our bartenders were great! They dazzled us with excellent skills while testing our taste buds with exquisite Gin and tonic's that we had never tried before. (Raspberry and rose, Lemon spritz) Before long, our table for two was ready and we were sat at eye level to the adorable canal. We had heard that Bridges was famous for their seafood, but i wanted to see how their meat was since it wasn't their specialty. We ended up both ordering their prime rib for mains and a collection of oysters to start. We were pleasantly surprised that four starters arrived at the table (gratis) which consisted of a rainbow of different colours, tastes and umami. All delicious and mouth watering, really got us ready for our prime rib. Just when we thought it couldnt get better, our oysters arrived! We ordered oysters from NZ and from the West coast of the US to see if we could tell a difference (suprisingly we could!) They both were amazing with the paired toppings! A few minutes later our waiter arrived, very politely asking how our meal was going and engaged us in conversation for about 10-15 minutes. We got to know his name, where he was from and some of the local favourites they suggest. We loved this and thought it very personal. Our main courses arrived: two inch thick prime rib, paired with a delish white asparagus (Famous in amsterdam) on a small bed of mashed potatoes. This meal was by far the best meat i've had in a few years. The meat was so tender it could be cut with a spoon and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. Our meal concluded with a very cute Birthday surprise (Again Gratis) of a delicious pastry with berries and ice cream. The restaurant made my girlfiend's birthday so special, i would go back here any day!More

We had the privilege of enjoying a lunch tasting menu with wine pairing at Bridges, the fine dining restaurant at Amsterdam's Sofitel Grand Hotel. The amosphere at Bridges is chic and sophisticated, it's only suitable their dishes reflect the same level of sophistication. We loved...the flavorful combinations and excellent food quality. With every bite you realize, the combinations of ingredients were carefully selected and curated to create and unforgettable mouthwatering menu. Gourmets of all kinds will find Bridges dishes memorable. Every course was paired with a stunning white wine, presented by the most charming and entertaining sommelier. Enjoying a meal at Bridges is definitely a bucketlist item to check on a trip to Amsterdam. Thank you to the talented Chefs, 3** Stars from us!More
