Excellent restaurant, good kitchen, interesting and exiting combinations and a very friendly staff. Last but not least a beautiful historic building. Who needs more?

“Exquisite food!”
Reviewed October 10, 2010

De Posthoorn is a hotel/restaurant in the center of Monnickendam, a pictoresk little village near Amsterdam. We booked ourselves a table in the restaurant and had a truly delightful evening.
Parking in the area is very difficult, we managed to get a parking place in front of the restaurant, but you may have to take some time out to find a place.
At entering we were led to the lounge where we had an apperitive, a relaxed start of the evening therefore. No pressure, the head waiter came to tell us what the menu offered and let us ponder over our choice over a nice glass of prosecco, and were offered an amuse bouche. The restaurant offers a la Carte, but also has special menus. We chose the "Season & Taste" menu, consisting of 5 courses, all with seasonal vegetables and fish/meat. You can order wine to go with each course, but we decided to have the odd glass of wine when we desired so.
The food is just sensational here, no wonder they have a Michelin star. Every course is an explosion of tastes, all with the best ingredients and very well prepared. The courses came in an excellent pace, there was no rush and we were left to wallow over what we just experienced. Between the meals too there was no rush, nor the annoying "Was it OK" when picking up the plates; it is obvious, looking at the empty plates, they know it's OK, no need to ask. Although each of the courses was not large, we left the restaurant feeling very full and content.
If there were any remarks, they would be that the restaurant was very warm (or airconditioning out of order?), and -although we rang in advanced saying my partner did not eat meat- she was offered a meat amuse bouche and one of the courses had meat in it as well. Need to say that the waiter quickly noticed the mistake and corrected it immediately without any ado.
A very delightful evening and utter pleasure for our palate.

“Magnificent!”
Reviewed October 8, 2010

Great ambience with a roaring fire, we chose the €55 5 course seasonal menu and it was quite simply outstanding. Impeccable English spoken and a couple of mistakes notwithstanding having explained no meat for me please were dealt with swiftly, discreetly and with profuse apologies and only highlighted the excellent service. Food was creative, delicious and beautifully presented with fabulous intensity and combination of flavours. Very good complementary wine choice by the glass per course. Adored the "flowerpot" dessert amuse. Incredible value for this quality of menu (compared to London certainly!) We will return!
