We had a fantastic meal at Envy! The service staff was very knowledgable and fun. We opted for the prefix menus and left the meal up to the Chef, which is the way to go! Every course was fantastic! We will definitely visit again the next time we are in Amsterdam!

We had a lot of mediocre, expensive meals, which is why we were so delighted to have such a beautifully prepared, delicious lunch at a very reasonable price.

Definitely the kind of good surprise: a beautiful modern decoration, a nice staff and the tasting menu is simply excellent. The food is modern, a bit of fusion and they deserve a michelin star. One more good point: they serve late! which is something rare in Amsterdam. We booked a table at 9pm and even at 10, some people arrived

So, having read the telegraph review of this restaurant we were really excited to go along for our 8pm reservation. On arrival we were literally squished next to a couple (who appeared to be on a first date) and as well as them we felt extremely uncomfortable at having to sit so close, so we moved to the bar tables....

The food was absolutely lovely, especially the entrecôte was amazing! When asking whether they had a wine arrangement with the chefs menu the answer was yes, she came back saying that she could just put a bottle on the table with every service... So there is no wine arrangement. You could notice that the some waiters were more experienced and... More

Being Michelin obsessives we found this bib gourmand restaurant on the Michelin site. Staying in the Jordaan we were a short walk away. Good times. Long dark narrow restaurant, we opted for a bar seat on the long tables in front of the display cases with all the produce in them. Nice wine selection at a good price. We didn't... More

Envy is a nice restaurant located right in Amsterdam center on a canal. The food is good and inventive, maybe the room is a bit dark but atmosphere is cool !

We enjoyed a nice evening with some good food. Restaurant envy is nearby the canal, where you can access it easily. However, the portion of the dishes is quite small, 6 main dishes and 1 starter are not enough for three girls. (Hahaha)

Second time to Envy ( I live in NZ) and both times a wonderful experience. This restaurant is cool, busy and the food sharing, European fusion style food. I feel the food is reasonably priced for the quality and style. I have eaten at many similar restaurants and rank Envy amongst the better experiences. My wife and teenage son both... More

Description
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.
