I keep it crisp and clean like the wonderful flavours in this amazing restaurant. Great food, great presentation, amazing flavour combination, impressively friendly and knowledgable service. Go there. It will be worth it.

Just try to avoid the bathrooms. old. smelly. running out of paper towels. not good.

We stumbled on this restaurant close to our hotel and was lucky to get a table, even though we didn't have a reservation. We had a great view on a very busy kitchen where the chefs plated beautiful food. The menu was quite varied and although it is actaully a tasting menu, they were flexible enough to allow a la carte orders for the not so hungry. The wine list offers a wide selection of Italian wines. Not even a group of very noisy business travellers at the table adjacent could spoil our experience. Certainly more expensive than the surrounding cafes, but far more enjoyable.

Came as part of a large group for a 30th birthday, and were very well taken care of by the very friendly staff. The had been pre-advised that one of our group was pregnant, and tailored the courses accordingly which was very welcome.

It's easy to see how it can be tough to get a booking here, the whole package is just fantastic, from the staff, through to the quality of the wines and, of course, the food. Every dish was superb, full of complimentary textures and flavours - in our party of 12 there wasn't a single complaint about anything.

Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good restaurant in Amsterdam.

Everything about this place is great. The setting , the people, the wine list , the ambiance - all perfect BUT for me the food was pointlessly overly fussy but worse still was pretty much without flavour. Yes the presentation was excellent but really apart from a delicious Truffle Rissoto course all other five courses for me are best described as bland , as if somehow the chef has perfected the art of presentation only. We left a little disappointed, sorry Bussia....

During our first stay in Amsterdam, we stayed at the Pulitzer Hotel. We were looking for a good meal and close to the hotel. The concierge suggested Bussia. We were met at the door by Natalie, the owner. She sat us at a great table, by the window. She took the time to recommend a wine and the menu. My wife and I had the 5 course tasting menu,which was fantastic! The presentation of the food is spectacular. We loved the dining experience so much, we ate at Bussia two nights later and Natalie sat us again at our "favorite." Again...awesome! We're back again (our son is doing a semester abroad in Amsterdam) and decided to go back with our son. Now he has a favorite resturant in Amsterdam.
