“Good, hearty homestyle cooking”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We ordered a Dutch Ricedish, which is a three-dish combination of the Dutch specialities served at this restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was tasty and filling (lots and lots of potato! be warned!), and between I, my husband and our three-year-old, we just about managed to finish the food (to which, the waitress appeared slightly surprised!). Therefore, go hungry.

Sadly, we had no stomach space left for desserts, which would have been good too, I think.

Service was affable and I love the slightly wacky decor of the restaurant and its mismatching crockery. Very interesting.

Be sure to make a reservation. We didn't, and we were asked to either come back one hour later, or sit at the tables by the sidewalk. We chose to sit by the sidewalk in a chilling wind, but the servers thoughtfully turned on the heat lamp for us, so that worked out well.

In all, a great experience.

“The real deal”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

I was looking for somewhere to eat some traditional Dutch food while in Amsterdam and Moeders didn't disappoint. I had the sauerkraut hotchpotch which came with a sausage, a meatball and some bacon. Highly recommended for a taste of some Holland. My girlfriend had the spare ribs and they were a success too. The service was very good and all the girls were friendly. If you want to come I would definitely suggest booking ahead. It was very busy and people were turned away without bookings after a while. If you want to try some Dutch food, Moeders is an easy choice.

“Real dutch food!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Service, food, staff, care of customer And feeling at home eating from grandma's hands.

Is a must if you really want to see something different.

Don't forget to call before to book or you will not get a table.

Enjoy it!
