We visited on a cool August night and were not sure what to expect. From the word go the staff was warm and courteous. Not stuffy at all like some other Michelins restaurants. Amazing food - both feasts for the eyes and the palate. My...husband had the wine pairing and said it was sublime. We have dined at some Michelin star restaurants before and this is a stand out. Would definitely recommend and would definitely come back.More

It is really an outstanding restaurant. Both in terms of food and service. We had 6 pc tasing menu and it was delicious. Waiter had a personal touch and he was helped by ,I guess, the owner herself. It was definitely a memorable experience !

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation and truly enjoyed our dining experience. Set in a 400 year old building, it has a sense that you have stepped into a Rembrandt painting yet the bright white table cloths, comfortable cloth chairs and white walls...suggest a modern time. The host and staff were very attentive. We especially enjoyed our server, Harry Potter, who explained each dish which was quite eloquent. Dining with friends, we collectively chose the 8 course menu. We started with complimentary canapés. They had a surprising and delicious mix of flavors that we did not expect. The shaved scallops with radish was a tasty combination of texture. The langoustine, quail and lamb were cooked perfectly which makes me wonder why this restaurant doesn’t have a Michelin rating. Included were two desserts that were too yummy not to finish. The first was an ice cream and sponge cake combo and the second was a creamy custard with a crunchy sugary topper. This is one of the best culinary experiences I’ve had and would recommend de Silveren Spiegel to anyone visiting Amsterdam.More

I had a wonderful experience at Der Spiegel. I reserved weeks in advance with some quirky requests: nothing too fishy, too smoke flavored, or too raw. They were graceful in accommodating me. I had the 5 pre fixe course. I can't remember what I had,...but the flavors were very fresh, vibrant, and complex. The restaurant is lovingly owned and operated by a family: the mom hosts and serves, the son is the chef, the DIL does the marketing. It's awesome. The staff treated me so well and were so much fun. Thanks for a lovely and memorable experience!More

I was wondering how the food tasted in the restaurant that has 5.0 on Tripadvisor - it tasted exactly like 5 star rating. We went out of there full and with tingling taste buds! It really is something to try if you are traveling to...Amsterdam! We also loved the friendly staff and the fact that it is a family owned business - they are warm and welcoming! We took a 7 course dinner - it’s our recommendation to take this one!More

What a wonderful evening with the best food and wine matching we have ever had. Having been to some Michelin Jules Verne in Paris Eiffel Tower, Cheval Blanche also amazing at Trois Roi hôtel in Basel, Chèvre D’or in EZE, Vinkeles in Amsterdam, Le Chantecler...Le Negresco hotel in Nice, plus many other I think I am qualified to say I am amazed this place is not Michelin rated. The service was brilliant friendly yet professional the food simply amazing and the wine matching the best I have had. We had the 8 course degustation, which on a hungry tummy worked perfectly. My wife stated that every degustation we have had has at least one not so great course, but every item placed in front of us was a work of art, but more importantly tasted fantastic. Well done to the whole team at this amazing little restaurant, you get 3 stars from this diner.More

We dined at this fabulous restaurant last week as part of our European holiday with my Mother and husband. It was organised many months ago by our travel agent back in Australia after her glowing recommendation. My Mother and I both had the 5 courses...and my husband the 6 course menu. The food presentation is simply art on a plate as well as some of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. The wine pairing was sublime too. The wonderful staff told us some of the history of the restaurant as well as explaining each dish presented. Their service was attentive without being intrusive. A trip upstairs to the bathroom was interesting too! We thoroughly enjoyed our night and haven’t stopped talking about what an amazing experience it was. Thank you so much.More

What an amazingly restaurant. From the first email I sent through to leaving feeling so happy with the evening the entire experience was fantastic. The food was just incredible, a complete taste sensation, ranging from an explosion of Dutch onion taste through to a medley...of lamb which was exquisit. It was so lovely that you’re not rushed through the evening, we were given time to reflects and savor each dish which made the entire experience so much better.More
