“Very good food”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We went to eat something for dinner on a friday. The food was excellent but we had to wait very long (1h) for the food. That is the obly reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
And they have the most delicious bread with garlic sauce to eat with a beer !

“Fantastic place”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

From arriving and hoping to get a table for 4, we were looked after by our waitress Andrea until a table was ready for us. The place was buzzing and full of people from different nationalities Drinks were regularly topped up as we sat waiting at the bar, plus we were offered bread and aliole to stop us from starving! When we were seated, Andrea translated the specials board (2 or 3 times!) and recommended an excellent wine. We had excellent food throughout the meal, and a very tasty irish coffee. The atmosphere was great, not too loud, but a very friendly one. Andrea sat down at our table with us to explain all the foods and drinks on offer (something we found to be a norm with Dutch waiters/waitresses), which we found to be a great thing to do. They do have a ginger cat in residence (he's a member of staff!) He does not bother you or go near the food or tables, but if you don't like cats or are allergic, it's just a warning as he is rather cute and friendly. The Van Beeren is the first restaurant I would visit if I was in Amsterdam again.

“Great choice”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We were lucky to get a table in here on a Sunday night, however arrived just as they had a cancellation. The atmosphere was great, nice low level lighting and friendly staff. Busy, but not overcrowded or noisy and from what I could tell it was mainly locals. The free bread, olives and water which were brought to the table straight away were a really nice touch. The food was fairly pricey, but delicious and the portions were big so it seemed worth it overall. I had duck liver pate and then vegetarian lasagne both of which were great, however after seeing someone with ribs I now wish I had had that and if I ever go back to Amsterdam, I'll be going back here to try them!

“Romantic nook in the heart of the city”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

We were so pleased we came here. After seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor we thought we'd see for ourselves and our high expectations were blown away!

Stepping off a quiet back street we entered this warm and cosy hideaway. It was bustling with customers but the waitress soon found us a spot, no problem. Very friendly and relaxed service, and as for the food... we both had the steak which was exceptional.

This restaurant was truly remarkable - go and see for yourself!
