“Great food and very much fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

The food is exquisitely prepared, as one would expect; last we were there, it had a slight bias towards fish. Being a fixed menu is actually liberating in a sense - you know you're getting the experience as designed.

The location is great - de Pijp is one of the more interesting and diverse Amsterdam neighbourhoods. The restaurant itself is rather small, cozy, with a pleasant, warm atmosphere.

The maitre de, sommelier and the chef are owners together, and very pleasant and informative to talk to.

The wine list is very good, some excellent choices in there.

Both the food and the wines are well priced.

In short - truly highly recommended.

“Wonderful prix fixe meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

My husband and I had dinner here and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Amsterdam. We had a table with a view of the kitchen, so my husband was happy watching their quiet, extremely organized preparations. Very good service. Imaginative food using local products. We will return the next time we're in Amsterdam.

“Best of Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

In my opinion really no other restaurant in Amsterdam beats this small, cosy one in The Pijp. The food is amazing, it is culinary but not to the point that it is more of a science project than something you enjoy eating. It is just perfect. The guy that does the wine section is really enthusiastic; he sorts out wines to accompany your dinner if you want, or you can just choose from the wine list that is sufficient enough. The maitre d' and the waiter are friendly fun guys who know the balance between perfect service and some fun. The chef comes into the restaurant with freshly baked madeleines after dinner - even if you are full (you will most likely be) DO NOT PASS THEM! They are even better than the ones you get at Laduree in Paris. There is only one thing: it is quite hard to get a table here, in weekends you really have to book a good few weeks(say 7 or 8) in advance. Weekdays are said to be easier, but just to be on the sure side I'd make a reservation instead of just walking in hoping to get lucky.
