When we are in Amsterdam, we are very lazy and not adventurous. At home town, we want to take it easy and to have just good food. That's why we go to le Hollandais. We know that the chef just want to cook good foods. And he wants to work with nice people. Simple but personal and sincere french local cuisine. If we go out for dinner in Amsterdam, we go here because you know it that it is just good.

We have been coming here for over ten years and it is the one restaurant in Amsterdam we keep coming back to. Consistantly great food in a nice atmosphere and with friendly and good service.
French cuisine with a Dutch twist sometimes. Try the home made sausage (of different styles) if it's on the menu. Good wine list which the staff knows if you need advice.

I have visited Le Hollandais of and on since the restaurant opened in 1996, and I have never been disappointed. In fact, in a bussiness sector that is known for its volatility, Le Hollandais is one of the most consistent - in terms of quality and service level - of any restaurant that I know. Chef Adriaan van Raab van Canstein has a signature cuisine of French cooking with a rural touch. Don't expect high wire, fashionably cooking experiments here, but solid dishes of a beguiling simplicity that offer deeply satisfying taste experiences. Adriaan's home made sausages alone are worth the trip to the restaurant. Yesterday's Christmas menu offered a salad with perfectly cooked cod, a choucroute with a lush piece of perfectly smoked wild salmon, venison with cavolo nero and chestnuts, a fabulous cheese plateau and a perfect nougatine with cranberries. Le Hollandais has two other strong points: It is pleasantly informal with excellent service. (Not always easy to come by in Amsterdam.) Some of the staff has been there from the beginning. Everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and goes out if his or her way to provide you with a pleasant night out. Also, Le Hollandais boasts an excellent wine list (French only) that offers affordable wines that admirably fit the taste profile of the menu. There is always an interesting wine outside the list. I have some knowledge of wine, but so far, I always had a wine that I didn't know and that turned out to be a revelation. Yesterday, I had a crisp, fragrant Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire region, and a deep ruby, elegant red from around Carcassonne, brimming with red fruit, soft earth tones, and hints of thyme. it was a perfect accompaniment to the venison. Finally, Le Hollandais is very reasonably priced, in a city where spending lots of money for mediocre food is more the rule than the exception. Do make a reservation, for the locals know that this kind of quality is hard to find in their city. I expect Le Hollandais to make it to their 20th anniversary and I hope to be there to celebrate it.
