“Birthday Meal - Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We booked a table on a Saturday evening for 5 guests. We truly had a fabulous and memorable meal. The owner and staff are very welcoming and hard working. Service was efficient and friendly. We explained that we were celebrating a birthday and were in no hurry, therefore we enjoyed a really relaxed evening, plenty of drinks, divine food which was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic. Genuinely one of the best evenings spent in a restaurant that I have experienced. 100% recommended.

“My new favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I love this place!

I visited on Saturday night and had advised Susie in advance it was my boyfriend's birthday. When we arrived our table was decorated with balloons which was a lovely touch and we were given a little taster on arrival which was presented in a little gift box. The ambience was lovely and the restaurant had a really good vibe.

The food is something else, everything we had was perfect. The scallops, ravioli, lamb fillet & rib eye were all outstanding! If I'd of had my way we would have eaten there every night on the trip! And the lemon sorbet prosecco cocktails went down a treat to!

It was the perfect special place to go for a birthday and I can't wait to go back and visit next time i'm in the city!

Thank you Susie!

“A very special meal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Some of our children booked a meal for us in Zaza's for our 40th wedding anniversary and our experience was very memorable and positive. We received the warmest of welcomes from Susie who was attentive and helpful ( and who, we later found out came from Ireland, like ourselves). They had prepared little personal touches for our anniversary - -hearts on glasses, a photo taken and printed out for us at the end of the meal etc. But of course, the main thing was the food!!! It was delicious, We shared the scallops as a starter and we both had the lamb fillet which was absolutely perfect - melt in your mouth tender! - and to finish I had the white chocolate panacotta and my husband had the Dutch dessert Yoghurt Hang Op. Both desserts were excellent. We would both highly recommend Zaza's which was intimate, personal with wonderful food.It is in a really nice area and we would go there again without a doubt the next time we are in Amsterdam.

“Quite a lot better than good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I booked this restaurant well in advance and was not disappointed at all. The service was excellent and the food was even better. If you are going to Amsterdam for a few days go eat there the first night. You will probably want to go back. Every single dish they put in front of us was of a very high quality.
