“great vegetarian food in very nice athmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

We booked the table 2 hours ahead on the phone and were some 20 minutes late. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted in a very welcome fashion by the nice owner. He knew we were late but did not mention it with one word. Instead he brought some of the nicest bread I have eaten in a long while along with a bottle of water (for free), olives and butter.
There are two 3 course menus and a selection of single dishes.

We combined some of the dishes from the 3 course menus. The fish started was marvelous and only beaten by the vegetable lasagne. My wife adores meat but stated that this lasagne shows that eating veggie food can really be as tasteful as a very good meat dish. To me it was the best vegetarian meal I have had so far.

The service was very attentive but never pressing. The restaurant is mid size and you find few tourists in the mixed type of guests.

The most astonishing is the price with 26€ for a menu and the same for a bottle of whine.
We felt extremely welcome and enjoyed our stay. We will definitely come back.

PS: Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures. My wife says it looks much worse on the photos than in real life ;-)

“Great Value and Excellent food ...a bit out of the way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

A good value. Your choice of two fixed priced dinners with multiple choices on each and very very good. They are flexible and will adjust to special requests. Very reasonably priced and includes no charge water and bread. We throughly enjoyed the meal.......but it is a bit off the beaten path in a neighborhood rather than the main drag. We went directly from the Van Gogh museum and it was about a 30 minute walk. Because it was a bit out of the way it was difficult for us as tourists to find out way back to the train station and so took a cab back which was very expensive. If you go be sure to become familiar with the public transportation. Enjoy!

“A real gem and fantastic value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were a group of 5 women on a weekend in Amsterdam. Every course was delicious. The menu was varied, the food all tasted really fresh and delicious. The service was excellent too and very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant, though they might need to turn down the heating a bit :)

One of the best meals I have ever had. Perfectly done lamb in a tasty sauce with sweet potato fritattas. Hmm!
