What can I say, you have to try this place! We had the 3 course meal including the spare ribs, staff excellent, atmosphere excellent, price excellent! Please make sure you book a table, about 12 couples turned up hoping to get a table while we were there but they were fully booked so had to be turned away.

A simple, warm and popular restaurant with very courteous staff. We tried the Dutch ricedish for two which included a few Dutch specialties, all very well done. The desserts looked very good too but a shame we had to pass. A must visit while in Amsterdam and be sure to make a reservation, we just got lucky without one...

It is a pleasant place to experience traditional holand food. With lots of pictures of customers (?) hanging all around the place and a good service, you can eat food home made of that kind only mothers know how to do it. I went for the classic: smashed potatoes with spinach, accompanied by sausage (large one), bacon and a huge... More

Modern serves exceptional Dutch food, two courses in this restaurant are way more than you expect, to fit in a third course will take perseverance. A really lovely family restaurant with great atmosphere. If you are in Amsterdam go there but book early.

The atmosphere was just like walking into mom's dining room. The pictures on the wall were great! The food was excellent.My daughter was not a fan of the ribs but I think they were good. It was cooked with honey and we are more accustomed to southern BBQ

We managed to blag a table at 5.30pm when the doors opened but were told we had to vacate our table by 7pm as the place was booked solid. Loved the decor with photos of Mothers everywhere (and I mean everywhere). Great Dutch traditionaal food, large portions and reasonably priced.

Food here is traditional Dutch, restaurant came well recommended from a friend who is a great cook herself. We managed to squeeze in since someone was late for their reservation, but the staff was nice enough to offer us free meatballs while we waited. The food is filling and delicious. Always gets crowded, would definitely recommend a reservation. One of... More

The decoration is very simple. Mothers all arround the walls. The food seems to be mother's prepared. Very tasty and local.

I ordered a delicious Dutch pea soup-- it was really good washed down with a Heineken. The walls of the restaurant are covered in photographs of mothers with family members. If you bring your mother for her birthday then they bring out a dessert with a firework like candle. Maybe my husband and I were dressed too casually but the... More

Awesome dinner!! We were in Amsterdam for four days and we went here two nights because it was that good! The ribs are amazing! The onion soup hits the spot.. we will be back for sure. The restaurant doesn't open Til five o'clock and is always booked. However, if you get there right at five they will seat you. That's... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
