We went there to try this new restaurant. The chef, Moshik Roth, has a great reputation and had 2 Michelin starts previously. It had different reviews in the local press, mostly good, but also some less good, especially concerning the service.
It's exactly the service where everything went wrong the night we were there!
The people were not attentive and hautain towards certain people, including us. They neglected us, didn't asked once if everything was okay. The maitre D' finally asked when we were leaving and waiting for our coats (nobody came to help to find them btw). We told him the truth and how disappointed we were. His reaction was inadequate also. (a weak apology and eyes that told us that he was not convinced we were 'qualified' to have an opion at all.)
We had a five course menu, including salmon. The salmon of my compagnon smelled a little strange, but she ate it anyway. She become sick from food poison the same night.
The next day we called the restaurant to make them aware of what happend and the chef told us that the salmon was not bad and that my compagnon was probably allergic to the many (and unusual) herbs they used, (those herbs were great btw). He also asked if we consulted a doctor to make sure if it was realy food poisening. I told the chef that my compagnon was a doctor herself, but he insisted that it must be the herbs....discussion closed and no further action taken.
Very disappointing the way they handeled this situation, but in my opinion this perfectly fitted into their arrogant style to deal with things.
The rest of the menu was good btw, including some great amuses. The pigeon was amazingly good even!
The cheese platter was a great disappointment though. Tiny platter, with nothing special on it for €20, and coffee was not served, as they 'forgot' to ask if we wanted some.
All in all it was the worst (Michelin star level) dining experience i ever had. So foodies....find some other restaurant in Amsterdam, There are plenty that are a lot better and offer far more value for money!
