“Foodism... Yumism!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We tried to go to Mazano only to find that it is no longer open. After consulting our guide book we came across Foodism - a very fortunate accident!

When we arrived the restaurant was busy. Tables were filled with happy, chatting diners. We were able to get a seat and the staff were soon able to give excellent advice on how to order in this tapas style restaurant. The staff throughout were friendly and welcoming. They made our evening fun and memorable.

We ordered three dishes between two of us and also had a desert. This was the perfect amount - we left not overly full but completely satisfied. The food was clean and fresh. The atmosphere relaxed and comforting. The perfect end to our first day in Amsterdam.

If you have the chance, ask the waiters to treat you to some plum/honey liqueur, made our evening!

“Portobello and Slivovitz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

The concept of slightly larger tapas, five of which serve two for dinner easily, works well. The portobello with pumpkin and ample goat cheese was superb. The octopus was swimming in a heavenly sauce, as were the six peeled gambas. The bread and aioli which came in ample amounts was also pretty good. The lamb cuts were a bit cold. The recommended Italian white by the bottle was outstanding, liberally supplanted by the Bosnian owner with complimentary helpings of more white, and small glasses of slivovitz and raki, supposedly in compensation for small service imperfections we had hardly noticed.

We left Foodism considerably more intoxicated than we had aimed for, however not without settling a rather modest bill. Overall a great dining experience in a small to medium, busy and fairly loud environment.

“The long walk was truly worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service, tasty tapas. The food exceeded our expectations! We booked in advance which was wise as the restaurant soon filled up. Three dishes each was more than enough. The food was creative and flavourful - enjoyed by all four in our party. Shame the tiramisu ran out - maybe there should be more choice on the dessert front. All in all a great meal!

“Great food in a nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We managed to get a table for 2 in this smallish restaurant on a Friday night, which was quite lucky as the place was very full. The food was a great selection of tapas style dishes (slightly larger than normal) and we asked to have a selection made for us. We were not disappointed, the only regret is that we could not finish all the lovely food!
