Description: Fifteen restaurant in Amsterdam is an exciting offshoot of Jamie Oliver’s...
Fifteen restaurant in Amsterdam is an exciting offshoot of Jamie Oliver’s famous Fifteen London, a great example of one set of dynamic, generous people inspiring others to act. In this case, the ‘others’ are Sarriel Taus and Coen Alewijnse who have created this combination restaurant and chef’s school in partnership with Fifteen London to benefit the struggling young people of Amsterdam. So what’s it like at the dining end of the equation? Very cool. The arty cosmopolitan style includes vibrant graffiti-scrawled sheet metal walls contrasting nice with the smart, sleek modern lines, designer seating and white table cloths. The restaurant seats up to 200, yet can still feel right for an dinner a deux. Each night a tasting menu is on offer, inspired by Jamie Oliver incorporating only the freshest regional produce. The modern Italian menu changes weekly and includes one of Jamie’s favourite antipasti to start, a first dish of fresh pasta, gnocchi or risotto, second course of meat, fish, poultry or game, and, we’re quoting here, ‘a wicked dessert’. A wine tasting menu is available to match the food tasting menu, or choose your own from the excellent list.

Nice food

A place where you can rest after shopping. The food is great and well presented. I really like the cold dishes and the dessert is not too sweet.

Really wonderful meal with fantastic food and friendly service. We can be difficult customers as two of us have fish and nut allergies and the third loves them both. We told the server our likes and dislikes and then left it up to the Chef. 5 amazing courses followed and we all tried (and loved) things that we probably wouldn't... More

We went in for lunch ordering soup a blt and scrambled eggs on toast. I never thought I'd be raving about scrambled eggs on toast but seriously it was phenomenally good, these chefs can seriously cook! We've already decided we're going back again so we can try out the dinner menu too. To top it all off the bill came... More

Had dinner with my company and it was delicious - from the starters to the desserts. Great modern but welcoming interior with the fridges in the restaurant - very creative. Good staff. Would definitely recommend

We ate here while spending new year in Amsterdam and reading good reviews. The 4 course tasting menu was a great mixture of charcuterie, tapas and 2 more substantial dishes and a delicious dessert. We left pleasantly full but not stuffed. The blueberry meringues were particularly lovely! Staff were pleasant and explained things well.

My husband and I went to Envy over the Christmas holiday week while visiting in Amsterdam. We made reservations so we were seated at a table. There are high-top communal tables for walk-ins. The restaurant is modern with low lighting which adds to the ambiance. The menu is a progressive type listing with small bites first, meats, cheeses, asian influenced... More
