“Great evening out with creative and tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

An evening that turned out to a culinary experience - a great, young motivated team that delivers amazing food and great service ... passionate, knowledgeable, surprising and uncommon flavors and combinations.
Really worth coming to Ouderkerk for this restaurant, we will be back!

“A Culinary Treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

While an evening out in OuderKerk we decided to give this restaurant a try. We were not disappointed.
I had not looked at reviews here on TA prior to arriving so had no idea what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with the evening. Enough so to say we would go back. I see on here that some people talk about the size of the dishes here...while perhaps small the amount of effort and the suprising tastes in every bite make it a culinary feast and great wines to match. It was slow the night we were there, but let us say World Cup, Tuesday Night and summer nights can do that to restaurants. Service top and the food even better. The advantage of these slower nights is you get a chance to meet the team running the place and even chatted a while with Jaimie chef/owner afterwards.
I think the best thing to say about this place is that there is a passion in the air here to delivery a quality product! If you are in the area, or even visiting Amsterdam it is worth the trip out for this Culinary Treat!

“Quality over Ouantity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We liked the friendly and ambitious staff who greeted and served us in this established restaurant which was previously owned by a Michelin star chef and taken over by his sous-chef. We enjoyed the fine quality of the three course set menu as well as its presentation but were somewhat disappointed by the portions and the location of our table. Their regular menu appears too limited to warrant an encore.

“Top notch restaurant 20 min outside Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Perfect place to have a nice long (summer) lunch or perfect dinner! Jaimie van Heije is a protégé of an impressive number of Michelin star chefs that started his own place a short while ago. The food is superb of quality / taste with some 'funny' detailsnow and then.
When staying in Amsterdam, DO take the time to travel to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel and try Jaimie's restaurant. Especially as the combinatoir of the two (the food and the beautiful and very old city of Ouderkerk) make such a great way to spend some time away from the crowds!

“Playful Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Amidst the clean lines, there were pieces that gave the place a playful ambiance. And they were equally playful in their cooking. The unexpected combination of flavors, that worked really well, was the highlight of our dining experience. The staff were friendly. While settling the bill, the waiter allowed me to practice my Dutch with him. Though the location is outside central Amsterdam, the trip to Jamie van Heije in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel was so worth it.
