“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Last week we visited this restaurant on two consecutive evenings and enjoyed the food, the housewine and the attentive service. We had grilled tuna Euro 23,95, salmon 18,95 and steak frites (homemade)21,95. The housewine Sideways for Euro 22,50 was delicious and very reasonably priced. The friendly and relaxed service added to the pleasant evening. We do recommend this restaurant.

“Bond never fails to impress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

I took my extended family - eight adults - to dinner at Bond last night. It was a special occasion, marking our reunion to celebrate my Dad's 75th and my parent's 50th. I spoke with Koen, the restaurant manager, ahead of time and he presented a fantastic meal. We have eaten here several times and the chef and Koen never fail to surprise and impress us. Last night we enjoyed light starters followed by the most delicious salmon I have ever tasted. It was raw, marinated and then topped with a tandoori crust. The flavors just exploded in your mouth - I've never had anything like it. Shrimp and breen in a lobster bisque followed and then Dutch beef. The dessert was mocha semi-freddo and chocolate. The entire meal was absolutely fantastic. Koen had carefully matched different wines with each course and the combinations were brilliant. He even organized for some sparklers during dessert. Throughout Koen's service was attentive, funny and sincere. He even remembered which wines my Dad had ordered when we ate here last April. Wow. When my husband arrived at dessert because of a late meeting and then cancelled trains, Koen asked the chef to quickly whip up a main course for him. Bond has terrific food and amazing service; we will return again and again.

“Overpriced and disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant looks lovely. The decor is stylish and the menu looks promising. We went for the four-course surprise menu ... Definitely a mistake judging by all the good reviews here. Our first course was described as house marinated salmon and was horrible ... Tasted like a curry wurst sauce. Lobster soup as a second course was lovely but spoiled by the bits of raw tuna floating in it. I quite enjoyed the duck in an orange sauce which almost too subtle ,but it was unremarkable. All in all, ended up wishing we'd gone somewhere else.

“Culinary Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Had a night booked at the Apollolaan Hilton and needed a dinner spot within easy walking distance of the hotel. Bond surpassed our expectations of a neighborhood bistro! Menu offered several nice options: beef, duck, fish, etc. Ordered the three-course menu and was pleasantly surprised: a lovely salmon appetizer, an exquisite wild duck main, and a stylish dessert of olive-oil gelato and chocolate torte. Wine and service was also outstanding. Dining room was comfortable and relaxed. All in all a superb evening.

“Memorable, brave approach to dishes, expertly done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Had a three-course meal here. Salmon starter that was an incredible work of visual and taste art, it really was just incredible.

Rest of meal was top quality (beef loin entree) and again expert prepared, but not really memorable like the starter.

Service was average for Europe, no complaints, very friendly, a tad slow on the wine/drinks, but we did have a big group.
