Description: Van Vlaanderen restaurant surprises its guests with traditional French cuisine with a modern twist. Our young and enthusiastic team will make sure you have a lovely evening in a cosy setting. Enjoy our beautiful a la carte or Bib Gourmand menu or be surprised by our chef with our special chef's menu with the best ingredients our kitchen has to offer. In the summer you can also enjoy our small, but cosy terrace overlooking the canal. Very close to tourist attractions like the Heineken Experience/ Brewery, Rijksmuseum and Leidseplein. Well worth your visit!

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

I had dinner with a large group, so that may have had an influence on what the cook was able to send out. Quality of ingredients was very high, but the taste was disappointing. Nothing special, to be honest... easily forgotten.
I will not go back here.

“Michelin Worthy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Everything in this establishment equals fine dining. The room is understated elegance. The staff is very professional, efficient, and cordial without being intrusive. The food is excellent and creative. Last but not least, the price structure is very fair. I highly recommend this place for pleasant dining experience.

“Restaurant Week Bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I know Restaurant Week is over, but we went to Van Vlaanderen for lunch and were blown away by the wonderful food experience. For 22.50 we had a great 3 course meal. We also had an amuse bouche as an added surprise... Leek and potato soup with parmesean foam. First course cod tartare and scallop, presented beautifully. Main course dorado and spinach with clams, and for dessert carmelized bread pudding with cinnamon ice cream and poached pear. The service was outstanding. The regular menu looks a bit pricey, but I am sure it is well worth it for a special occasion.
