As a group of four we bored the table the evening before. Always get a guide when people are prepared to wait for a table. The restaurant did not disappoint. The food was excellent, the service exceptional and the atmosphere very relaxed and enjoyable. The staff were very aware of their patrons. They knew their menu inside out, especially when... More

After scanning the menu outside quickly, I decided to walk in and at least just have the bitter garnish. Upon setting foot inside I was greeted with delightful smells drifting from the kitchen. I picked my seat and was greeted by the waitress in a friendly manner. I asked for suggestions about authentic Dutch home-style dishes, and decided on the... More

For our first night in Amsterdam I wanted to try some traditional Dutch food. We found De Blauwe Hollander and showed up without a reservation. We were very lucky to get a table as they filled up shortly afterwards and there was a wait for a table. My favorite thing there were the pofferties, which is a little pancake served... More

We were there earlier today. Split pea soup and mussels were great. Service what's good. We sat in the window and watch the people walk by. However, if you sit in the window, you will be sitting right next to the people outside at the smoking tables. It did not bother us.

Visited here with a friend who used to live here and visits often. She suggested trying a local place and we were not disappointed. Service was good and the food came out in good time. I opted for the Stamppot which was a bed of potatoes and carrots topped with very tender beef and a gravy which was very good.... More

We had a few young servers helping us and they were friendly and helpful. The food was very hearty and tasty. Try the croquettes, stamppot and carrot curry soup. I also got a chance to try some genever here too. It's a Dutch gin thatcan be had in all sorts of flavors.

The pea and leek soups were highly recommended and were very good. The (young) cheese plate was also excellent and served with a mustard dipping sauce. We each ordered the meatball stammp pot, but one to share would have been enough. Overall, very good and worth a try..!

We stumbled upon this place by chance and were very glad we did. At 7pm the queue was about 20 deep. We wanted to try some local food before we left and were not disappointed, who would have thought that Holland had such a great cuisine! Highly recommend.
