My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Conservatorium Hotel and knowing that the highly acclaimed, Asian fusion restaurant, Taiko, lives in the premises, we could hardly contain ourselves and planned a visit. An early booking was assured and we arrived to find a highly motivated and lively staff preparing for another night of excitement. A staff member plays the Taiko drum each time a new guest arrives and the sound gets quite exciting as the night progresses. Another staff member explains the menu to you and answers all your questions about it. After a good study of the menu, we both decided on the Classic Omakase Menu at 85 Euros each. This menu is made up of the all time guest favourite dishes for the last 3 years. The only difference is that I wanted only cooked dishes and my wife wanted raw dishes, which was easily accommodated by the chef. Each plate was a fantasy for the eye and excitement for the palate. My Japanese wife easily identified each ingredient and was very pleased with every morsel of food. I was very happy to receive the quality ingredients, cooked to perfection. I washed my meal down with a hot, dry sake which was delicious. The desserts were equally appealing and delightful to taste. This is the easily the best meal we ate in Europe, during our 5 week tour. If you get a chance to visit Amsterdam, this is a must visit. Highly recommended.
