“Typical dutch food for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

Everybody knows that "Moeders" is a restaurant fool of mother's photos. What I couldn't imagine is that they are even in the bathroom door. Well, as tourists, we ordered the typical dish with about 6 main courses for 2 persons, at 19 euros each. Everything is served in little portions. No starter, but there is no need. The complete set is: smashed potatoes, ruibarbo pure, apple pure, hot pot (potatoes pure with endivia), sausage and bacon, red cabbage, baked potatoes and what they call "bifes", but for me is like a baked or cooked meat, one pan with onnions and another pan a little bit spicy. Its more than enough for 2 persons. Everything was very tasty. For dessert we ordered ice cream with dutch bescoue and apple pie (not included in the price I've mentioned). The presentation was great and tasted even better. The expresso came with a surprise: a little box with dutch cookies. The service was very attentive and efficient. I do recomend this restaurant in your staying in Amsterdam. Its open only for dinner, after 17h, on business days, and saturday and sunday is open for lunch too. Reservation is advisible because the restaurant is small.

“Very quaint little restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

My Mom had done some research before leaving for Amsterdam and she came across this restaurant. We made reservations online (highly recommended as many people were turned away while we were there).

The food was very tasty. We had the hotchpotch with sauerkraut and we really enjoyed it. I loved the mismatched plates, cutlery and glasses!

“Perfect little dutch restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Fantastic, yummy Dutch food served in a quirky and fun atmosphere. The service was superb and the food was really tasty and great value for money. Loved all the pictures of mothers on the wall! This place is a little gem and we would definitely return!

“Best for Dutch food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is traditional Dutch food at it's best. It took me and my wife a long time to find somewhere in Amsterdam that served genuine Dutch cuisine, far too many Asian restaurants when all you want is something local! It doesn't try to be pretentious or something it's not- it's homely Dutch food cooked the way 'mothers' do. The walls are plastered with patron photos of mothers, the crockery is a mismatched assortment of donations when the place first opened but adds to the place. It got busy quick and we were lucky to get a table, atmosphere was good and i could hear a whole variety of languages being spoken. We ordered starters and mains, were given free bread while we waited. The portions are huge and walked away feeling definitely full.
If you want to try something local and traditionally Dutch, visit here!

“Good local experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I don't care too much for the food, but it was a cute place. If you bring a framed picture of your mother, they will put it on the wall (so they say). The wall of pictures of mothers is a good conversation piece. We got to the restaurant before 6pm, so there was no problem getting a table. I'd recommend checking this place out if you're planning on visiting the Anne Frank House or after the visit.
