Description: When you come into our home, you can expect fine, Michelin-quality cuisine in a down to earth environment. We serve a 4-o 7- course pre fixe menu, made with beautiful fresh ingredients, all hand picked in Paris by our head chef and co-owner, Dennis Huwaë. His exquisite dishes look like art, and with their many flavors and textures, his creations are a delight to the palate. Because we don’t like the atmosphere of reverence that this level of food usually comes with, we do things a little different at Daalder. We like to serve these fine dishes with a smile in a joyful, unpretentious atmosphere. And, because we strive to make delicious and beautiful food accessible, you’ll be still smiling when the bill is presented! Warm Regards, Team Daalder

“Fantastic find!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. We had the 3-course chef's menu and every dish was so nicely presented and more importantly yummy, yummy, yummy! The service was fantastic. The lovely lady who served us went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed our dining experience there. It was customer service at its very best. The place itself is basic and has a relaxed atmosphere to it. It almost belies the service and quality of food one gets. But you go there for food and service. That makes it a 5-star in our ranking.

“Forget Paris..... Go to Amsterdam and eat at DAALDER”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

For those who still want to experience the new bistro cuisine from Paris and are not there but in Amsterdam, there is DAALDER. Simple, no fancy restaurant in the middle of the Jordaan area with a very rewarding kitchen and friendly price level. My son is living in Amsterdam and this was chosen by me to have lunch with the three of us. A very nice sweetpotatoe/orange mix was starting this lunch, followed by chopped veal with calamaris, maincourse was the pork belly with beans ( signature dish) and to finish a very nice fresh dessert with basil icecream and cherry. Excellent coffee served with a salted caramel. Excellent and Friendly service at the table by our waiter and the chef himself. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon and because of that it is likely we will visit again in the next couple of months. The three of us can Highly recommended DAALDER as your next lunch/dinner choice when in Amsterdam!

“The perfect combination of laidback and gourmet”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went here with my girlfriend in May, and from the get-go it was a great experience. The place itself has a pulsing bar with tables snaking along the walls around it, past the semi-open kitchen, and into the pretty narrow room with just tables. If its not clear - this is not a huge place, but thats part of the charm and vibe. (So book in advance!)

Menu is as it should be - set menu probably based on seasonal wares - and you just pick the number of courses you want.

We had four courses, all of which were exciting and cooked to perfection in all aspects, plus a couple of chews in between. The bottle of white, plus a couple glasses red for the meat-course were all excellent. Service was casual and friendly, but professional and effective - the best mix in my opinion.

Qualitywise the food is right up there with Ze Kitchen Gallerie in Paris, but with Daalders rather conservative prices the value here is the best I've ever seen.

Thinking back on this meal brings back warm, living memories and a strong urge to book a flight back to Amsterdam and enjoy another (this time the maximum amount of courses) awesome meal here at Daalder!

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We were lucky enough to get a seat on the terrace on a lovely summer evening and from start to finish it was a fantastic experience. The staff are friendly and efficient. As already mentioned by others the only choice you have to make for the evening is the number of courses you want. We went for 4. From the presentation to the Innovative use of ingredients everything was perfect. We started with a veal tartare, followed by black angus beef (probably the least "inventive" dish but cooked to perfection all the same), then pork belly with black beans (for me the best course). Dessert was strawberry and rhubarb with verveine ice cream, delicious. I had the wine pairing and couldn't fault any of them.

And the best part....the price - the four course menu (without drinks) is (only) €42!!

Will definitely go back.

“A Wonderful Dining Experience!!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We visited this restaurant on the (inspired )suggestion of a friend of ours.
This place has really got it! An excellent concept in modern and exciting food.
All the dishes were adequately generous, gorgeous on the eyes and extremely, extremely tasty. The staff were very friendly and happy to explain the dishes and to advise on the wines.
I would strongly recommend this place to anyone!! A real treat!!
