We visited here during a weekend away, fresh off our flight and commute to the city we cycled up to De Dijp and immediately knew we'd made a good choice. The service is incredibly warm and friendly, the interior is intimate and modern, the food was absolutely first class and also incredibly good value.

It is located in a lovely area which felt like it was far removed from the tourist drag, with young 20s/30s enjoyed good food and good drinks - thoroughly recommended.

Although small, the restaurant easily accommodated of group of 12 with a reservation. Everyone enjoyed their selection from the fixed menu. Servers were pleasant and helpful and food was prepared quickly. Desserts were fantastic.

Dinner at Zaza's was part of a surprise trip to Amsterdam for my boyfriend's birthday on Saturday 10th August. I had booked a 5* Leading Hotels of the World establishment for our stay and was after a restaurant that would offer personalised and friendly service, nice modern interior, just big enough to have the feeling that you dine with friends even if you did not know the people around you and of course beautiful food.
They truly made us feel special. The owner, from Ireland originally, was so welcoming and even when the restaurant was full she provided amazing service and the smile never disapeared of her face the entire evening; the girl running the floor with her was really friendly as well.
The restaurant is served by a tiny kitchen, however the chefs are at their best. The food was delicious, and the presentation reflects atention to detail and imagination.
Balloons, amuse bushes, smiles, jokes throughout the evening all finished with.....and I am not going to say what am I talking about, as I do not want to ruin the surprise at the end if you celebrate your birthday at Zaza's :)

We will certainly visit the restaurant again and again and again :) Good Job Everyone!!

We booked a table on a Saturday evening and were glad we did. Whilst there several people came in only to be turned away. The meal got off to a good start with a delightful home made bread and dip combination. Truly some of the best we had in Amsterdam. Other highlights of the meal had to include the tuna tempura with a soy sauce dip, delicious rib eye and lamb mains with parmesan stuffed onion and sweet potato gratin and fantastic puddings. Asked for recommended desert wines with the pudding and both wines were spot on.

Restaurant is quite small and we were lucky with our table and other tables looked quite 'cosy'!
