Booked a table on weekday in the evening, based on the other reviews, and was not disappointed at all. Ordered the 5-course chef menu. on one hand, 3 of the 5 courses were not available, but very suitable alternatives were presented. Wine arrangement was very nice, it included even a Sauternes dessert wine. Only minor disappointment was that no re-fills included. But with the prices, this was not an issue. Food was excellent, refine, can compete with the better restaurants at a very affordable price. But I won't book the restaurant for lunch service, because in the same area, is the buffet of the museum located. So at noon, it is very noisy and you have less opportunity to enjoy the courses.

Not much to add when reading the other reviews. Yes, it is a hidden gem. Yes, the prices are more than affordable (and then I mean MORE than affordable in comparison to restaurants with a similar quailty like VisaandeSchelde, Utrechtse Dwarstafel etc). Yes, the quality of the food is perfect, yes, their staff is young but friendly and absolutely willing to learn. Magic menu with magic wines in a historic building with a modern twist. Let's just say: "Go see for yourself". Or even better: "Go try!!".

Neva is the restaurant in the Amsterdam branch of the St Petersburg Hermitage museum. The museum opened a few years ago in a vast, beautiful renovated and completely modernized, former mansion for the elderly, built in the 17th century on the banks of the Amstel river, sitting right in the historical center of Amsterdam. Since it's rehabilitation showing ever changing and surprising exhibitions from the vast collection from the St Petersburg Hermitage vaults. Because the museum attracts all attention, the restaurant annex is underexposed and not valued as it should be. The space is beautiful, the ambiance is splendid, the service is adequate, the kitchen perfect. We've eaten here several times and it was very good. At all times. And we were surprised again that we could find seating without any problem, while it should be packed with gourmet lovers.
Not only in the cafe, not only during the day, but at night as well. People seem unaware that when the museum is closed, the restaurant is open. Check it out ! It is good !

Not easy to find but once inside you find a beautiful restaurant located on the first floor of the Hermitage Amsterdam; "Restaurant Neva". Modern but warm architecture, enthusiastic staff and a chef who knows what good food and good cooking means. We had an absolute PERFECT dinner with lovely wines to accompany the menu. The prices are unbelievably low if you consider the quality of this restaurant. This is a one of kind restaurant which suprises you in every way.
