“good service and good food on scenic spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Close to the center of picturesque Ouderkerk aan de Amsteld you will find restaurant De Oude Smidse in a combination of several historical buildings just at the point where the small river De Waver enters the Amstel. There is a nice small drawbridge where you can sit outside if the weather allows. At the time of our visit this was not the case. However, the cosy atmosphere inside De Oude Smidse, the friendliness of the service and - last but not least - the quality of the food can compensate without any doubt! We went with four persons enjoying different menus and all of them where very good. Ouderkerk is just half an hour to three quarters of an hour on the bike from the center of Amsterdam, so cycle along de Amstel and enjoy your lunch here.

We had a business dinner as part of a conference and the food was truly great. The service and presentation thereof together with the excellent service made the whole evening truly special.

“typical dutch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Its a typical dutch restaurant that used to be a blacksmiths.
the location is next to the amstel but not that expensive as they
other restaurants that are there.
Normal sizes, food like steak and chips and salad and in the summer you can sit on the terras with a view on the amstel.
