We had diner here on a Friday evening; we only called around 8pm and they could still offer a table for 2 at 9pm. They told us that it would be a table by the door, that the door was open but that they wouldn't mind closing it if would turn out to be too cold for us.

We shared a half dozen oysters as a starter. Irish oysters which were very fresh and very tasty. Just the way we like them.
As main we had fish and poultry. Again, my fish was very fresh and well cooked (not dry). It came with a nice taragon sauce and crisp vegetables.
Desert offerings were a bit on the heavy side but you can always opt for a couple of home made chocolats ;-)

Service was impeccable: very fast, friendly and fun. I got a little sip of a new dessert wine for free. Very very nice experience.

When I lived in Amsterdam last year I visited this place regularly. Last week I was back in Amsterdam and immediately went back to this restaurant. It was again a very good ewperience. Very friendly staff, good food and very good wines. Recommended.

We visited with our son and his partner. They live there and have been before. They suggested 3 places to eat and we chose the most up-market. We were not disappointed. It is not cheap to eat out in central Amsterdam and this was more expensive than other places we visited but well worth the price. I paid €60 per head but we didn't choose the cheapest wines!

The food was exquisite and the wine was excellent. The service could not be faulted, either. The place is small and intimate but with large picture windows overlooking the outside seating and a busy square. The whole experience was on a par with any restaurant we have tried around the world.

I liked everything about this restaurant: food, wine, atmosphere, decor, location, service. I really liked the simple menu, still properly filled with great, fresh ingredients. Wine was very good as well. We will certainly come back!

We had a three course meal here and the food and service was lovely! Not the cheapest food, but still very worth it. Perfect meat and wine!
