This seemed like the least expensive dinning option in the hotel. Like most places in the hotel, the room was pleasant and but the atmosphere was relaxed.

The one night we ate there we thought that although the food was good, dinner took way longer than it needed to be. It took us close to two hours for the two of us to get through 3 courses.

In the future we'll skip this restaurant unless we are in a pinch.

Serre is a gem in Amsterdam. Located in the Akura hotel, about 15 minutes by cab from the City Center, I had a wonderful lunch at Serre. The setting is hip but calming, with a lovely terrace overlooking a canal. The food was delicious, innovative but simply prepared to allow the flavors to shine. I had a soft shell crab first course and lobster as a main off the Bib. Both were fantastic. Unlike other reviewers, I found the service to be attentive but unobtrusive, which was nice as a solo diner.

Serre is inside the Okura Hotel. I had a two course, simple lunch with excellent raw salmon, raw minced beef and a wonderful salad. The beef was an elaborated with finely minced vegetables and aromatic herbes: simply superb. A good Asahi beer was the perfect companion to this great meal.

We have almost a hobby of going to Michelin Bib restaurants. Considering the chef has a one star Michelin restaurant on top of the Okura hotel we expected a lot from Serre. Unfortunately we were a little disapointed. It is not bad, but it is not a remarkable meal by any means. If nobody told me it was a Bib or that the chef had the Michelin star, I would not have noticed. The restaurant was not full and the service was slow and less than attentive. You had to make sure you made yourself noticed when you needed something. I cannot even remember what we had. A pity, since the Okura experience is great and we actually changed our schedule to be able to dine there.

This was the sister restaurant of the 2 Michelin starred restaurant Ciel Bleu but it more than held its own in terms of food, service and atmosphere. As we were staying in Hotel Okura itself, we decided to try this restaurant having heard good things about it. The service was impeccable and the food was great for the reasonable price we were charged. We started with some fresh oysters and a bottle of chablis and thy s was followed by soft she'll crab with noodles for me and beef tartare for the Mrs . For our mains, I had the fowl confit and the Mrs had the grilled lobster. We ended off our wonderful evening with some macarons and chocolate cake. Dining with the view of the canal next to us added to the wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended.
