I booked a table here after reading about the restaurant here on TripAdvisor, and I have to say we were not disappointed! The staff was very welcoming, helpful and the whole place had a nice atmosphere. The food was amazing, and ended up being the highlight of culinary experiences we had on our entire visit in Amsterdam. We are definately coming back for our next visit to Amsterdam.

We flew into Amsterdam late in the evening. We decided to go to Zaza's based on TripAdvisor reviews. The restaurant was to close in 30 minutes; however, the staff were very welcoming and ready to serve us. We were offered an amuse-bouche, which was very delicious. We ordered the pan fried scallops with rosemary risotto, cauliflower cream and dried pancetta, the pumpkin soup, and the goat cheese terrine with apple and celery served with smoked beat root and walnut dressing. For the main course, we ordered the oven roasted medallion of veal stuffed with red bell pepper, onion and fresh herbs, apple and sage tarte tatin and Irish mist jus. Each dish was an interesting mix of tantalizing flavours that complimented each other. We were so impressed with our first visit that we returned again a few days later. On our second visit, we ordered the carpaccio of cured sirloin of beef with forest mushrooms and gorgonzola cream - what a beautiful mix of flavours. For the main course, we ordered the char grilled rib eye and the breast of guinea fowl. Again, each dish was fresh and flavourful. The staff were friendly and welcoming, always ensuring that guests are looked after. The atmosphere was quaint and delightful. We cannot wait to visit Zaza's again!

The food, service and atmosphere was everything they claimed it would be on their website and did not disappoint! The staff were entertaining and welcoming, how they manage to miss each other as they rush up and down the restaurant is amazing to watch.

The food was amazing, well presented and portion sizes you would expect from a top class restaurant. We had three courses and were more than full by the end.

We sat at a table for two next to each other so could see the whole restaurant in front of us which was great as we got to see what everyone else was eating and it all looked good.

Highly recommended!

The food we had was excellent but portions small scallop and prawn starters consisted of 2scallops and 2 prawns table next had 2 starters to share I.e. A choice of 1 prawn or 1 scallop at a cost of 11.50 euro a 50% increase would not break the bank !service and atmosphere could not be faulted and would recommend to anyone with small appetite

We had a fab fab meal at Zaza's. A restaurant frequented by locals not tourists. The staff were incredibly helpful. Menu was small - I am a fussy eater & was tempted by most of the dishes. Settled on fish for my main which was very moist, flavoursome & exactly per the menu description. Zaza's has an understated atmosphere & was a delight!!!!!
