What people say of Bridges Dining*
Had dinner here through the restaurant week. I'm generally skeptical about coupons dinner but yet decided to give it a try. Very pleased by the whole experience. Got served a nice and fresh 4 course meal while seated at a comfortable table with view on the canal. Many reviews complain about a "forgetful" service, often taking too much time to fulfil the guests requests but we didn't have this feeling at all. The wine cart is what would you expect from a restaurant of this level and I was surprised by the quality of the wines that were served by glass. Wonderful experience!
Wonderful, creative food presentation, superlative service, very expensive wine
Wij hebben het EUR 55 menu gehad. Mooie gerechten en uitstekend bereid. De maaltijd was precies goed gepositioneerd. Service was goed, hadden iets attenter kunnen zijn bij het schenken van het eerste glas. Zonder iemand in de buurt hebben we ons zelf maar ingeschonken. Sfeer was goed het viel echter op dat wij de enige Nederlanders waren. Dit ligt wellicht meer aan de ligging en plaats (The Grand) dan aan het restaurant.
About Bridges Dining*
A 'Grand' transformation for Restaurant Bridges
The living room for the Amsterdammer
Restaurant Bridges has been totally redesigned. French interior designer Christophe Daudré has turned this modern seafood restaurant in Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam into an even more inviting, elegant and convivial dining hotspot. The festive opening took place on Monday, 31 August 2018.
While Paris is famous for its Eiffel Tower, tourists come to Amsterdam to see its canals. Michelin star Restaurant Bridges is located on the oldest canal in Amsterdam where the movement and reflections of the water were the source of inspiration for the designer in charge of this project. The result is an intimate atmosphere in what used to be the cafeteria of the former city hall.
A highly acclaimed designer
The interior design was created especially for Bridges. The comfortable seating came from Daudré himself. The mirrored panels decorated with gold and metal were created by German haute couture mural designer, Susanne Köhl. The gracefully elegant lamps were devised by Ombre Portée (designer duo: Éric de Dormael and Agathe Tiret), a firm with clients such as Chanel and Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
Excellence for all Amsterdammers
The new Bridges is proof that even a Michelin star restaurant can provide a very relaxed dining experience. Bridges is the place where every Amsterdammer feels at home: a restaurant with good service, hospitality and conviviality. A place to enjoy the spectacular pairings of seafood and wine created by Chef de Cuisine, Raoul Meuwese and Wine Director of Bridges.
