Great restaurant with a rich history. The owner was very helpful and told our party about the building's history. Food and service were excellent.

“My new favourite resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

I came here for the first time with my fiance and we were not sure what to expect. We were blown away with how great this restaurant is! The service was the best I have ever experienced (by a long way), and the steak was cooked to perfection. We then had the famous sticky toffee pie, and a homemade limonchello (which was amazing). The small menu is perfectly balanced and everything is made fresh. I cant wait to come back next time I am in the area! Also, if you could send me your recipe of the Limonchello then that would be fantastic!

“Favourite restaurant in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

My husband and I booked a reservation while still in Canada and we were very happy we did because it was very busy the night we dined - a Monday evening. The restaurant was easy to find and is located in one of the nicest areas in Amsterdam (Jordaan). The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The warm, homemade bread was delicious and we loved our gravlax appetizer - very fresh and perfect with the horseradish cream. Our entrees, risotto and tuna steak were very good and generously portioned. They were so plentiful, we were unable to have room for the amazing-looking sticky toffee pie. Would definitely recommend.

“Unassuming with surprisingly food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is quite accessible by walking from the city centre. We took around 15min to walk to the restaurant from our hotel along Princegarcht. The restaurant sits right along the main street. There seems to be ample parking space. We were early for the table seating, but the waiting staff were very accomodating and arranged our seating anyway. The restaurant offered two types of table seatings: indoor and al fregos. We chose to sit outside. We noticed that we were their first dining customers. We ordered their special entrèe of the day, sautéed shrimps in white wine to share. My wife ate the hamburger and I, the Angus steak as pur mains. The waiting staff was extremely helpful in explaining the menu. We were served drinking water and a portion of an extremely delicious sour dough with flavoured cream. The entrèe and mains were fantasically well prepared. The portion size was also manageable. We were so full after the mains that we had to skip breakfast. Vlaming Eten & Drinken is truly worthy of the positive reviews lavished at them on Tripadvisor.
