This comfortable, well appointed restaurant is a short tram ride south of the city centre, on a square next to the Tropenmuseum (Museum of the colonies). It provides really superb international modern food with a Dutch twist. My duck rillettes with pickles were followed by a delicious cauliflower velouté and then roast cod for a main course, served with samphire and excellent roast vegetables. Desserts are straightforward but beautifully presented with home made ice cream. There's a good choice of wines by the glass and the service is friendly and efficient.
The 2, 3 and 4 course menu options provide good value for money - the quality is way, way above what you get in the tourist spots in the centre.

Michelin worthy lunch with delicious dorado, steak and Iberico. The creme caramel was delicious too with orange and gluhwein syrup. We were served by one of the owners and the service was excellent. Situated opposite the Tropen museum, across the water it is small but personal! Recommended to us and we Highly recommend it onwards!

Amsterdam's a lovely city but even it's most ardent admirer would admit there are too many places serving overpriced tourist food with precious little quality for the cost. This place, on the edge of town serves good worthy of the highest awards but is well priced (read not cheap but not ridiculous either). Worth finding if you're on this side of town.

Just happened upon this place, a 3 minute walk from the Hampshire Lancaster Hotel. Nobody had mentioned it but it is a JEWEL. 5 course meal for 49,59 euros ---would cost 3 times as much inParis! Really, absolutely wonderful. Delightful staff, beautiful restaurant (quiet with view of bustling city), super chef. He slipped away before I could thank him personally for the beautiful evening. You want perfect, this is it.

Went with a large group and all had the five course menu. It was all super and no one had any complaints at all and I would come back. Only slight issue was one of the staff dropped a good bottle of wine and without asking proceeded to poor into our glasses. It would have been nice to have not been expected to pay for a whole bottle that was spilled on the floor. Apart from that it was a good evening.
