Description: When you come into our home, you can expect fine, Michelin-quality cuisine in a down to earth environment. We serve a 4-o 7- course pre fixe menu, made with beautiful fresh ingredients, all hand picked in Paris by our head chef and co-owner, Dennis Huwaë. His exquisite dishes look like art, and with their many flavors and textures, his creations are a delight to the palate. Because we don’t like the atmosphere of reverence that this level of food usually comes with, we do things a little different at Daalder. We like to serve these fine dishes with a smile in a joyful, unpretentious atmosphere. And, because we strive to make delicious and beautiful food accessible, you’ll be still smiling when the bill is presented! Warm Regards, Team Daalder

Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

I can't recommend Daalder highly enough, brave adventurous food perfectly served by this young team. No menu, pick a number of courses and start your good adventure.

Very knowledgable staff, both in food and wine. Not that expensive for the experience you get.

“Amazing meal!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We went to Daalder on the recommend of the owner of the B and B we stayed at in Amsterdam. The way this place works is you tell the server if you have any allergies and then choose anywhere between 3 and 7 courses and then the chef prepares you an incredible meal! We started out with some smoked almonds and home-made hummus and then had a tasty amuse bouche - and these weren't even part of our three course meal! The first course was a ceviche sea bass which was heavenly - tender and tasty. This was followed by slices of beef with pureed broccoli - and it was one of the tastiest beef dishes I have had - lightly cooked, wonderfully seasoned. Finally, we had there was a mango dessert (three different kinds of mangos) that included little meringues, other fruit and curiously fantastic basil ice cream! This was by far the best meal we had in Amsterdam. Outstanding service and amazing food - a great way to spend three hours!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We showed here on a Saturday night without reservations. We came to Daalder because it was close to The Eelhouse, a B&B where we were staying. Of course, every table was full but we we were warmly greeted by the bartender who said we were welcome to wait at the bar. Since we weren't in any great hurry, we decided to wait. Almost as soon as we sat down, we were given a large bowl of almonds and a little later a complimentary dish of breadsticks with dip were brought. The bartender answered any questions that we had about the meal. The choice was 3,4 or 5 course meals. It was about a hour before a table opened up but time passed quickly. We decided on the 3 course meal since we had already munched at the bar. The food was delicious and we weren't hurried at all to get done. If you want a fancy restaurant with beautiful decor, this might not be the place for you but if good food and service is what you want then Daalder is the place to go.

“Would highly recommend.”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

My boyfriend and I went to visit Daalder on a Friday for lunch. It was truly a great experience! We had the 3 course Chefs menu and each course was a small work of art and a true taste sensation. Probably the best lunch I have ever had! We had lunch at their beautiful terrace in the sun but the inside looks amazing too. The staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. Just love the place. Wish it was closer to home because I would be there every day! Of all the restaurants we have visited in Amsterdam, this was by far the best. Would highly recommend.
