“Respite from the rain-so much more than we could have hoped for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

I had lunch at the Dylan in late December on a cold rainy 10-hour airport layover in Amsterdam. I took the train in from the airport--very easy, about 20 min and only a few bucks. Then, walked from the station to the Dylan. The walk was just the right amount of time to stretch our legs after an 11 hour flight...then there was the Dylan, its charming ambience, small town but high class feel, beautiful and tasteful holiday decorations, the superb staff at every post and the food--delicious! I had halibut, my bf had a burger. Both were delicious. They were perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. I would go back there in a heartbeat and would have loved to stay there. Highly recommend veering off the beaten path a little for this brasserie!

“Brasserie Occo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Came for Christmas lunch and totally enjoyed the pheasant breast, mash with sauerkraut sausage and bacon. Perfect for a hearty winter meal. Bread and vutter pudding to cap it off. Great service and atmosphere.

“Maybe the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

I travel a lot and visit many restaurants. This is probably my favorite. The combination of service, wines, food is excellent. It also has a distinct and different touch on the food, not main stream. "Test Diner"
