Description: Dear Guest, Restaurant Daalder doesn’t carry an a la carte menu, but a delightful 7-course menu of the chef. You simply lean back and leave the rest to 2- Michelin star chef Dennis Huwae, who can recently call himself patron-cuisinier of Daalder. Don’t be fooled by the simple ambiance; the food is not simple at all, because Huwae will continue to do what he has always done; cooking with pure ingredients, which he allows to speak for themselves. ’Let nature do its work. Choose beautiful products and treat them with love and respect. Eventually it all boils down to love for the product and the time you are willing to invest in creating your dishes.’ Team Daalder CHRISTMAS - NEW YEARS EVE Dear guest, You probably are already making plans for the holidays! Also at Daalder we are in full preparation for our Christmas- and New Year's Eve dinner. Our chef has a festive 5-course menu in store for you. For Huwae, creating his dishes is an ongoing creative process, so the menu will remain a surprise until the very last minute. But be warned! Our chef is truly 'on fire', so we promise you a wonderful fine dining experience. Tim Gras Huis, our maitre-sommelier will be inspired by these beautiful dishes and will make sure the wines will be beautiful and complementing. 5-course meal € 80 - Wine arrangement € 8, - per glass Daalder offers this exclusive menu on the following holidays only: December 24 - Christmas Eve December 25 - 1st Christmas Day December 26 - 2nd Day December 31 - New Year's Eve. Happy Holidays! Daalder team

“Well worth a visit however expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant, the attention to detail is great and the food very good. We went especially as the chefs choose what food you had so if you are not fussy its great. The only things I would say is that is not value for money, the portions were very small, we had the 3 courses and the main course was meat but it did not come with any vegetables, it was a generous portion of meat but it came with nothing. Quality of food is very good but for what you pay it is a little disappointing. The overall atmosphere and feel of the restaurant is lovely. When we came to pay it took 30 mins for them to get their card machine working which left us on a negative which was a shame as it was embarrassing having 2 cards turned down and then having to wait for half an hour for the problem to be solved, it was the telephone connection of the card machine nothing to do with our cards. I am just glad I was with a family member as could have been very embarrassing. I am more than happy to pay for that little something special however this was just too much.

“Michelinvalue for less money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Daalder is a hidden secret in Amsterdam. Amazing food, amazing value. Really creative cooking in a small former cafe at the Jordaan. All dishes look liked an art director designed them. And Daalder is also open on monday. What a treat!

My wife and I visited Daalder and were very impressed with the 7 course tasting menu which would be the envy of any Michelin starred restaurant. Fantastic !

“Amazing dessert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We went to this restaurant for lunch today on the recommendation of an Amsterdam resident and we were wowed by the whole thing. The food was wonderful - small amounts but all full of taste and contrasts and the dessert was a masterpiece! We will tell everyone to visit!
