A very nice dinner on a warm Amsterdam evening. We had the 4 course chef's menu with each and every dish being very creative and delicious. Wine pairings were spot on. We ate outside which was very pleasant. Will definitely return on our next visit to Amsterdam.

A delightful dining experience with friendly and welcoming hosts. We were blessed to get a table as there was a last minute cancellation. It was one of the best dining experiences that we have had in a long time. The food presentation and taste was a delight to the palette; coupled with the pairing of the wine. The owners took great pride in ensuring that we had a great experience. Highly recommended, and be sure to make your reservations.

We had looked up this restaurant on Trip Advisor and stopped by to see what they had on the menu. They not only adjusted the fixed menu (I don't eat veal), but found a seat outside with a great view. We LOVED our meal from the first course (scallops) to the wine to dinner (beef tenderloin) to the dessert (strawberries with yogurt and ice cream) . I was able to meet and thank the chef myself - what an amazing experience!!! Highly recommended :)

We had a 7:00 reservation. The restaurant was fully booked so we were glad to have a table. We were seated promptly and warmly under a beautiful old fireplace on a city bench. The location of the table was perfect!

The food was well presented and tasted amazingly. My favorites were the scallops and quail, but every dish was superb!

The hostess, likely the owner, and the waiter worked in concert taking care of every table splendidly. I will also note that there seemed to be stood mix of tourists and locals. A restaurant that has local patronage is always a plus!

Our dinner lasted three hours and totaled 300 Euro for three people with a nice bottle of wine. It was well worth every cent! Five stars!
