“Very, very hot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

Take over a run down greenhouse. Convert half to grow your own veg and the other half into your own restaurant and you have a super hip combo. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is very slick, a bit off kilter and just great food. Enjoy the experience.

“Presentation of food and atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Very out of the way for an Amsterdam tourist, approximately $20 euro cab one way fare from city center. Nice setting - restaurant in a greenhouse where they grow their own vegetables. Meal is 3 course fixed which you can expand to include a cheeseboard. The starter and first course were very good, but the main entree was mackerel that was too fishy to eat. Since it was a fixed dinner, we didn't know that we could ask for something else until we had finished the course. Would have been nice if server had shared that info with us ahead of time. Overall, the fresh vegetables were fabulous and the setting very different. I don't think I would return again. Q

“Perfect location, wonderful food, small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We choose this restaurant as we read that it is among the most peculiar restaurants in the world. The location is great indeed, and very elegant as well as the waiters. We had the menù with three entrees and one main course. All of them where really good and tasty but very small portions. The price is quite high for what you eat.
It is those kind of restaurants that you try once for the experience of eating in a garden.

“Memorable Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I have been lucky enough to visit De Kas twice and I loved it on each occasion. We started with a glass of house sparkling and wander through the herb garden, followed by the three delicious courses. We all loved it. The flavours were delicately balanced, the portion sizes perfect, and we also opted for the wine matching which also added to the experience. All the staff are friendly and welcoming which isn't always the case in places the calibre of De Kas. Next time I'm booking the chef's table!

“Good dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

De Kas, a greenhouse converted into a restaurant is located in a gorgeous park, walking distance
(15 minutes) from the train station. We walked into the park by a side entrance with the greenhouse at a distance. It was absolutely breath taking!
The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The service was excellent and the staff goes out of their way to make sure your visit is pleasant. They were very kind and called a taxi for us when it was time to depart.
We found the food to be fresh and delicious but it was not outstanding. We had good food and wine but not "gourmet" dining.
It was a delightful experience nonetheless.
