Loved the service, and the absence of 'overdoing it because we are exclusive'; as a vegetarian I was very impressed by / pleased with the excellent and tasteful veggie spices.

Had a client lunch at this restaurant. Found it very sterile and the menu was quite limited. Each course was explained to us, but some very strange combinations. The cod was delicious, cooked to perfection The veg are gardened on site, and I would say it’s a nice place to go to in fine weather. But for a client meeting,... More

Positives: I was accommodated with limited notice on a Monday evening as a solo diner. Mostly friendly service, nice dessert with freshly shaved winter truffle, intriguing garden course with associated menu, lighting that changed with the courses. Negatives: overall I was not impressed with either of the main courses provided in the 5 course tasting menu. Veal course was so... More

I was here one year and an half ago and i just have to confirm the place: Food! Wine! Atmosphere! Service! Top, top, top, top. Then it is a bit fare from the center... but the good thing is that you have not much tourists;-))) Let's try another approach of Amsterdam gastronomy on his best side! They have a garden... More

An amazing dining experience, with great food, good service and an enjoyable setting. We had the 5 course tasting menu and loved every bit of it. Was a great way to spend our last evening in Amsterdam and I couldn't recommend it enough.

This restaurant reminds me of Heston Blumenthal cooking but the advantage here is that you do not have wait half an hour in between each course, food is slightly wacky but delicious, without doing any spoiling of the surprises, the taste of the sorbet completely caught me out but I loved it and the way one of the courses is...

Wow! This was quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. The theatricality of the presentation was one thing. But to have food with such unusual, yet delicately balanced flavors put this restaurant on an exceptionally high level. Tastes should be interesting and combined to form a harmonic combination, like a musical chord. The subtlety of the palates of... More
