Amazing 8 course Michelin lunch
Restaurant Graphite* is located on Paardenstraat in Amsterdam, near the famous Rembrandtplein.
Restaurant Graphite can almost be called the second home of owner and chef Peter Gast. After working for 16 years in Zutphen, where he was awarded a Michelin star, he and Jacqueline van Liere opened the mysterious Graphite in the heart of Amsterdam on Rembrandtplein. They have only just opened but are already an insider tip in Amsterdam. A restaurant that you have to open yourself with a QR code on your phone, without a nameplate on the door – the first speakeasy in the Netherlands.
Chef Peter brings his passion for good food back to the neighborhood with Graphite. A business that changes day by day.
Chef Peter Gast has put together a fantastic 8-course lunch for Diningcity for only €69.50 p.p.

What 52 people say about Graphite*
Verrukkelijk gegeten, alles smolt op de tong, smaken heel subtiel. Sfeer beviel heel goed, intieme hoekjes en vrij donker waardoor je met nog meer aandacht ging proeven. We kwamen helemaal bij en hebben genoten.
Geweldige lunch gehad!
As they mention when entering, no mentioning of interior should make public, to preserve all new guest the experience. Therefore, I will not speak about the interior in details. The speakeasy starts with the reservation and arrival, where you need a code to enter. The interior is more darken due to there are no wind...
As they mention when entering, no mentioning of interior should make public, to preserve all new guest the experience. Therefore, I will not speak about the interior in details. The speakeasy starts with the reservation and arrival, where you need a code to enter. The interior is more darken due to there are no windows, what is for some could be a border. It is a more lighted nightclub. Intimacy but also not that much due to tables are quite close to one another, so you still hear conversation especially when it is busy it is a speakeasy for those who find the entrée, but I will suggest to open up if this is their goal, because it feels like individual pots but also not.
The service is very friendly and low-key not too tight but if they ask you after each course how it is, it becomes annoyed, especially when they service 15 courses. Also, They are not really keen on selling wine by the glass, but they still know people prefer it, so still offer it. What I do not know is a good thing on their hospitality.
The interior at first look very lovely but when you look closer it seems to be very cheap kinda feeling, quality and maintenance, especially in the bathroom where the lighting is more bright. Also, the interior planning I do not really odd, the logic I do not understand quite open and closed at the same time.
Another strange thing is their cutlery service, they give you option of what you prefer to use, but that set is the only set you get through the whole meal. You need to reuse it, OK maybe it is something with eco-friendly (less washing) but they do not give you like a holder that can rest your cutlery on it. They recommend putting it on the table, what is strange. So I just put it on the selection of cutlery holder.
The bread plate, it is a bowl, I was really struggling with it because I still need to place my piece of bread in it and also my butter, what is difficult without the bread touching the butter.
Very lovely done, nice elements, but less they are quite standard combination and sauces. No new things that I have tasted. I could say, if you want an average meal and just want to rest a bit after a work day, this is a nice place to eat. Some dishes are done great, some average and some just meh (did I need to come to a Michelin star restaurant for this?).
The most surprising is 1 dish and the highlight for me is the X dessert. Where technic place a vital role, exterior is white chocolate with interior layers of elements. Where the crumble is to serve mostly on the plate to prevent the ice cream to shift, in this dish it really cut through the whole sweet dish, as it is made of coffee and had a strong coffee bitterness what is really great, because most of the time it is so focused on sweetness in desserts, making people hate desserts.
Overall I will recommend this restaurant especially the price quality is high, also the wine list extend but more expensive than the average Amsterdam's restaurants. They do have good pricing on it.
Een voortreffelijk avontuur waarbij je een spannende, ontspannen en feestelijke lunch geserveerd krijgt. Gerechten zijn echt ontzettend lekker, verrassend en prachtig geserveerd. Vriendelijk personeel en sfeer is goed. We komen terug; een aanrader!!
Graphite* is the first speakeasy restaurant in the Netherlands and is located in the Paardenstraat near Rembrandtplein. The restaurant is mysterious and hard to find. So you have to look for a door with a scanner and take your QR code with you.
The setting in the restaurant is reminiscent of bars at the time of the American reclamation. An intimate yet spacious restaurant with a clubby atmosphere, loud music and dimmed lights. A mysterious environment.
Chef Peter Gast has earned his spurs in the past 16 years as chef of restaurant 't Schultenhues in Zutphen. He prepares classic dishes and refined sauces and combines these with inventive ideas.
In 2020 Graphite was awarded 1 Michelin star and in total they have 16 Gault&Millau points.
