I made reservations for this restaurant a couple of months before we went to Amsterdam based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and it worth it and just as good as everyone says. We went early since we just arrived that day and wanted an early dinner. We chose to sit inside to get the full experience. We did the wine pairing and 4 courses which was just enough for us...but everything looked delicious! The history, service were all amazing. Our server told us about the house and allowed us to walk around around ourselves upstairs to see the house. Floors are not level and the stairs up there are really steep..but they serve food up there. Give it a try you won't be disappointed!

Our favorite dish was the beef which was beautifully presented, sliced before hand by the chef and was possibly the best piece of meat we had ever eaten!! And the beetroot sorbet in the dessert was amazing. Also our waiter was very knowledgable and extremely welcoming.

In the small, leaning buildings typical of Amsterdam rests a restaurant with a great sense of history and itself. The food is out-of-this-world and the service is imperceptibly right where you need it when you need it. The food included a selection of Dutch favorites and we trusted the server and sommelier to guide us through our wine pairings, which is the way to go. The best meal I ate in this city and a real treat. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is located in a historic building. Our waiter told a little about about the interesting history of the building. Notice how skewed everything is inside and outside, funny detail.
The food is exquisite and the service is very good.
Expensive.

This is a gem of a restaurant. I have read many reviews that say it deserves a Michelin star. I am not completely convinced but will say it is one of the best meal experiences in Amsterdam. The atmosphere is great and the food is wonderful. My only issue is that the expected dress is typical Amsterdam and somewhat ambiguous. You will see anything from tourist shorts to dressy with sparkles. If you are trying for an upscale night out you may be a little unsettled. However, you will NOT be disappointed by the food or the service.
