The food was very good, tasty and not kitchy, i really recommand the garlic sorbet, so unexpected!
The manager is extremely nice and the service was awesome. The house red wine is fine. Other wines are a little too overprice

Don't let the name of the restaurant drive you away from it. Garlic is not a must here. You can have perfect garlic-free dinner with quality (tasty) food here!
If you love garlic this is a place for you, though. They even have special garlic beer!
I had tuna steak; menu declared that it comes with lots of garlic. It is true, but sauce comes on a side in a small glass, so it is up to you to regulate amount of the spice. By the way, I found garlic sauce to be rather delicate. Not extremely spicy or hot.
Tuna steak was perfectly made and very delicious! It was also accompanied with mini salad of tomato, mozzarella and plenty of pesto - very good addition!
To conclude - the place worth visiting. Prices... In a medium range, it is not a cheap diner.
P.S. place is located in a gay district, be prepared to see guys holding hands (as anywhere in Amsterdam, though)

If you live garlic, then I suggest you stop in and have some garlic soup. I love garlic and that is this restaurant's main theme. I believe that all of the food incorporates garlic in some way. I love it. It may be a little hard to find, but it is well worth it.

I thought this would be gimmicky but the food was an experience I would keep coming back for. I visited with a friend. We have very different tastes but thoroughly enjoyed every dish we tried. I definitely recommend the Garlic soup and baked garlic. Service is so laid back it's horizontal but staff are friendly and informal and laid back service is typical of Amsterdam

Doesn't seem well known, but the food is really good. Try the trio of appetizers (garlic soup, halibut carpaccio, duck liver pate). We chose to eat "small plate" style and it worked very well.
