While on a trip to Amsterdam with my sisters we stumbled upon Kop van Jut. It is a very tiny, dark, little restaurant located in a very busy, restaurant area between the Rijksmuseum, Heineken and the Casino. You could easily walk right past it. We liked the restaurant so much we ate there 2 nights in a row. Chef Ivo offers innovative food, carefully prepared. We had the most delicious cauliflower soup and tomato soup. Great steak and pork schnitzel. Special on the second night was dungeness crab cakes, prepared differently to what we are used to in the US but absolutely delicious. Our servers, Eva and Nuria were also terrific. This restaurant was a great find that I heartily recommend and would be pleased to return to.

Love this place. Sometimes it is packed. Sometimes it is empty. It is always very good. When you are practically sitting in the kitchen there is a purposeful quality which shines through.

Cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant! Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and the food is delicious. The kitchen was open to see from the far end of the restaurant - always a good sign. The carpaccio starter was a great mix of flavours, although the portion was huge. I had the lamb shank for the main course and my partner had steak, we really enjoyed them both. We were too full for dessert. It's not cheap here but it is good value for money. The wine and beer were cheaper than the bars on the Leidseplein! Two chefs and one waitress worked hard all night and made a great team.

What a nice restaurant and lovely people who work there! Enthusiastic cook, waitresses with big smiles on their faces, loved it! And the sate and hamburger are great for dinner before going to one of the many bars around this restaurant. Will def. visit again.

cosy and very friendly. You can actually see them cooking your meal which is all fresh. They also brew their own lager which is very moorish.
