Had a very enjoyable 3 course meal at this charming restaurant. Set off the beaten track a little but no where is far to walk in the old town. It was very easy to find.
Lovely local dishes and very professional staff. We chose dishes as simple as grilled cod to more elaberate meat dishes. All were presented beautifully.
Our bill for 3 with 2 bottles of wine came to around 150 euro - so not cheap but on par with a decent London restaurant.
At one point the restaurant was full so booking is a good idea

They are currently celebrating thirty years as a restaurant with an addition to the regular menu of throw back items from their past. The rabbit from that menu was excellent. The service was at a slow pace but very friendly.

Hemelse Modder is one of my most favorite restaurants in Amsterdam. The food is excellently prepared contemporary continental: imaginitive, flavorful, and attractively presented. The staff are all very friendly and attentive. It is just to the east of the red light district, and has more local customers than tourists. THe ambience is relaxed, and not excessively loud.

The best strategy is to order a 3-course meal (choose from a selection of starters, main courses and desserts). The beet salad was excellent, steak was perfect medium rare, and I especially liked the chocolate mud pie with cherry ice cream. Wines by the glass are also good.

We found this restaurant, tucked away in the binnenstad, purely by chance, and a lucky chance it was. The food was truly excellent, the décor simple and uncomplicated and the service unobtrusive yet attentive. One of the best dinners ever!

The restaurant is not common in the center part of Amsterdam where the majority of the restaurant are suited for tourists and not aiming to propose the Dutch cousin.
I've been there with a Dutch friend (from Utrecht) asking for a place where to test Dutch receipts and cousin. That's exactly what this place is. Good food, not common plate and receipts. Very nice atmosphere and kind personnel. Very close to the central station (5 min by walk). I've tried the home-made croquette (good), the sirloin (very good), the chocolate dessert (see the photo of the restaurant) excellent (can't miss it!).
Only (minor) remark, it took a little to much to get the second course, the list of dishes is not that ong (which is not basically a defect...).
Congratulations, very good, I'll keep the card and be back!
