This was my second time in Amsterdam and I made a reservation for 5 of us as soon as I knew we'd be there at end of July. I fell in love with this charming old restaurant when there 6 yrs. ago and since then have been recommending it to many. In fact some of my friends were there a few nights before on my recommendation.
However, we had the WORST server ever, a thin, short dark haired gal, who treated us just awful. Right up to the end when she made errors in our bills and wouldn't redo it. I told the concierge at our hotel (who had reconfirmed our reservations before we went) to let the hotel know how unhappy we were. He then contacted the hotel as he was concerned since they highly recommend this restaurant. I certainly hope for future guests sake that they did something about this very bad service, for the restaurant is wonderful otherwise.

"Definitely worth a visit"

What a lucky find late afternoon on a Sunday before the main rush! All of the staff were very helpful and pleasant from the moment I asked if they could cater for gluten free. Not only that my first choices were on their gluten free menu and they even had gluten free beer – what a treat! I had delicious soup to start with and they accompanied that with a good quality bread roll straight from the oven without me having to ask for it (this is far from my usual experience). Although there was a slight misunderstanding on the main course dish I ordered, that was immediately rectified and without prompting they brought me an alternative to chips (mashed potato) and an extra dish of sauté potatoes. Not only that - they provided all four of us another free round of drinks in compensation for the mix up! Just when I thought it couldn’t be better I was about to start my sweet of ice cream when the waiter simply removed it and came back with a gluten free version. Regarding dietary requirements the staff must really communicate with each other even under such busy circumstances. The whole experience was wonderful, value for money and as you can guess I can highly recommend this restaurant. No wonder that they were having to turn people away!

Hebben er weer heerlijk gegeten en de bediening was weer voortreffelijk.
Het is er druk en gezellig mede door de internationale sfeer.
Prijs / kwaliteit zeer goed. Wij zijn fan!

Food was great, only fault was wait in between courses. The restaurant was busy & good atmosphere. Really good house wine. We took our 8 year old daughter who had the Child menu which isn't advertised, has 2 choices. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for all nationalities & ages. Staff was really friendly too.

Al meerdere keren hier gegeten, en altijd super bevallen. Goede, snelle service.
Perfect gluenvrij eten, aparte kaart en personeel weet precies wat het inhoudt.
Wij blijven zeker terug komen!!
