“Nice surprise, menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Was there last Saturday, and surprise to arrive at an empty restaurant. Within about 5 to 10 minutes however the place started to fill up, but there was still quite a few empty tables, which I found astounding. I went for the surprise menu, three courses, and was very pleasantly surprised. Imaginative seasoning and very well cooked food. Excellent service. I would highly recommend this place. Really can't understand why there wasn't a queue out the door. One of the best meals I've had in a long time.

“A pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We decided to research and book places to eat this time. Too often have we walked in to a city centre restaurant off the street and frankly,wished we hadn't . There's nothing wrong with tourist restaurants; not often much right either!

So after a false start at the right address on the wrong street, we finally arrived at Beddingtons. Offered a choice of table, we went for one with a kitchen view.

This turned out to be a great idea. You see we chose the 'surprise menu,' and had great fun trying to guess which dish the chef was preparing for us.

The surprise menu is excellent as other reviewers have said. You tell them what you don't want and they cook you something else. I had roast beef with pork to start then a lamb burger. Neither would have been my menu choice, but both were excellent. Proof that the system works!

Can I fault the place? Not really, it delivered exactly what I hoped for, a leisurely, delicious dinner in a nice setting.

“Outstanding resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Great food, outstanding service. We ordered the chefs surprise which is 3 courses designed by the kitchen. We were not disappointed. Starting with the bread and very fresh butter, each of the courses were outstanding. Although a limited with list, great choices and an excellent local sparkling wine. The waitress was very knowledgable of the menu and had a wonderful personality. Will be back.

“Fabulous food and lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

A group of us ate in this restaurant on the recommendation of a colleague and it was fabulous. The kitchen is open for all to see and the chef worked wonders to feed a large group of us with really beautifully cooked and presented food. We were so impressed that we actually gave him a round of applause at the end of the mean (not something we Brits would typically do). The waitress was also very friendly and made us feel that we were valued customers.

I would definitely revisit again if I return to Amsterdam.

“Worth every Euro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Chose the "surprise" menu. Once dietary restrictions were accounted for, chef made us, including child, 3 course meal. Lovely combination of ingredients. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Waitress was lovely & helpful. Even the kitchen helper was friendly.
