We went to Bougainville for the first time this past week and were overwhelmed by the quality of the meal and the equally wonderful service! We could not have been more pleased with everything. Add to this the beautiful atmosphere in the restaurant. We will...certainly return to this excellent restaurant. Amsterdam can be very proud !More

Like a competitive dance, this restaurant led, kept up and finished with every. Our group of four enjoyed the Chef's Selections with a wine pairing. At 300+ pp this was worth the expense and impressed at every pour, presentation, and course. Welcoming staff came and...went in an interchangeable manner, each presenting details on dishes, flavors and wines. Every need was anticipated, from readers for the faint of sight to alternative wines for those who questioned a pairing .. no service was spared and guests were treated to a memorable evening. The staff was as great as the food and left us wanted ovation!More

We had the taster menu with wine flight and both were interesting and amazing in equal measure. My wife does not eat meat, but does eat fish and the variant’s made to the menu were delightful. The ambience was cool and sophisticated, just what you...want for a special anniversary. Every detail is well designed from the plates, the wine glasses, the cutlery, further lifting the experience. These places only work if the staff are special. The right level of interaction, knowledgeable about the food and wine they are serving and the staff here have it in spades. They were truly wonderful. A special thank you to Catarina, who besides explaining the wine also, being Portuguese, gave us a list of restaurants to visit on our upcoming holiday to Portugal. We flew to Amsterdam to try this restaurant and it was time and money well spentMore

We were warmly greeted downstairs in the hotel and escorted to our lovely table for six. A parade of imaginative, delicious, beautiful dishes followed. Truly exceptional food and service and marvelous guidance by the sommelier. One of the finest dining experiences we have ever had....Our table was very much impressed with everything. Hopefully, a second star will be awarded soon.More

Forget the rest this is the best. The food is amazing lots of chefs extra dishes, wonderful little touches and unusual flavours all explained in great detail. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and we were made To feel very very special and the extra...sweets and cakes with the coffee were simply superb even if we did feel like we were about to explode🥳 Had the wine flight which was fantastic really enhanced the flavour of the dishes. The wine waitress didn’t tell us what the wine was until we had finished the dish and then they gave us all the details and explanation of the vin yard and the wines history. The setting is wonderful but the stars of the show are the staff, they are very friendly, exceptionally attentive and we felt like we had made new best friends. Thank you for a magical night.More

Located in Hotel 27, Bougainville is a beautiful restaurant, and a Michelin level dining experience. We had the five course tasting menu and split a cheese course to finish. We also had the most adventurous and creative wine pairings. Super fun!

What an experience. We don’t usually go for these types of restaurants, but the reviews were so good that we decided to give it a try and wow was it incredible. The service over the top Ronald and the rest of the staff were engaging,...and very friendly. More importantly the food was incredible. I appreciated the fact that not only was there a multi course menu but we could order à la cart which we did. If you’re going to splurge on a dinner in Amsterdam, this is definitely the place to go. Definitely one of the best of the best.More

I had high expectations based on previous reviews and this place didn’t disappoint. The restaurant is small but beautifully decorated and yet spacious for the diners. From the moment we arrived until we left, the service was faultless. I struggle to think of anywhere as...good. The staff were all friendly, knowledgable and engaging. One of the chefs even came out halfway through the 7 courses to check the meal was up to our expectations. A lovely touch. We chose the signature tasting menu and the food was fantastic - each course full of flavours, with some beautiful sauces. It truly was a feast. I absolutely loved all the dishes. The wine choice was extensive and our waiter catered for our specific tastes brilliantly. I will often take pictures of food when in great restaurants but I was so engaged by the whole experience I didn’t ! Says it all.More

Great location on Amsterdam’s dam square, beautifully decorated dining room, impeccable service, diverse wine list, are all only a mere after-thought after tasting chef Tim Golsteijn’s cuisine. The menu is eclectic, but it isn’t until you taste the particular nuances, and beautiful contrasts of each...dish that you can take the full measure of the chef’s talent. The execution is flawless, and the experience is of a very, very solid 1-Michelin-star restaurant. Keep your eyes peeled for news about this chef, as he is certainly well on his way to a second Michelin star. Special mention to the sommelier, whose daring choices open new worlds, and revisit past certainties. I you are reading this review, I have only one advice for you: go!More
