“Burger of superior quality”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

If a quick burger is what you are craving for dinner, come here. All the meat is of superior quality and there is also a vegetarian option. I had the Spanish lamb burger, with the lamb coming from Texel, one of the Dutch islands (yes, we are a tiny country, but we do have beautiful islands up north). 8 euro, but it comes with real bread (not the sugar cubes from you know who) and its a really good portion that can serve as a meal. I had it with a rucola salad with grilled veggies and parmegian cheese on the side, and a pear juice (just the yummiest Dutch pears, nothing else). On the down side, I was at the place close to the Albert Cuyp market and there weren't that many tables at this location. Also, the suction in the kitchen wasnt perfect so you can definitely smell the grill.

“Great burger, what no chips?!?”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Lovely small little burger bar. Some great burger choices and a nice selection of sides. Nice for a change to not have chips.

“Best burger in Amsterdam”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Burgermeester is a small chain restaurant with three restaurants, all located in Amsterdam. The beef is from a French breed of cow, but they are actually more common in the Netherlands. The burgers are freshly made and the menu differs from season to season.
I was surprised at the taste because I have never eaten a better burger. The vegetables were tasty, the meat was delicious and the sauce was also great.
If you like fries, don't be alarmed that they do not serve any. The salad is a very good alternative!

“An excellent vegetarian and original beef burger!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Hi all!!!!
I have read some of the reviews on this site and I must say that the people who have left negative feed back must be gelouse or they don't have a clue what a burger should be like!!!!! A Good Burger It's NOT, and I repeat It's NOT about the cips that some people think It should be served with!!!!! It's about the burger and they know what they doing!!!!
After being in Amsterdam for a couple of days we found this burger place and decided to give it a try as we where a bit sceptic regarding a decent burger , But boy,was I wrong??????? It was an absolute delicious burger, the lentiles as well as beef burger!!!! And they do an absolutely delicious could potatoes salad to go with the burgers too !!!! Well done to you guys and looking forward to eat at your place again!!!!! Love from UK!!!!!!

“Gourmet is the word”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

While Burger Bar is the "straightforward" way to have a great burger in Amsterdam, Burgemeester is definitely the gourmet choice. Strategically placed in the hippest neighborhoods in town (the Jordaan and de Pijp), away from the big crowds (although pretty crowded just the same), Burgemeester offers a menu that varies every month, featuring burgers enriched with the most various and inventive toppings, such as beetroot, kimchi, mango chutney or buffalo mozzarella. The staff is nice and friendly and everything is fresh and prepared at the moment; while this might mean a little wait, it is definitely worth it.
