“good outdoor setting”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

A good relaxed bistro with great food and great service. Its not the poshest place but it was good fun and very enjoyable.
I went for a relaxed business meal but it would have been good for couples too.

“Wonderful dinner”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We came for dinner with our two young children. We were made to feel very welcome right from the start, and both waitresses were incredibly warm and friendly, and good with the kids.

The four of us shared the "mixed starter for two", which was served on a three-tier platter and featured a small portion of every single starter on the menu, including the specials. Such a treat to get to try everything, and it meant the kids got to nibble on this and that but didn't get too full.

The children then shared a burger (which was sweetly served cut perfectly in half on two plates), the adults had sole and steak. All the mains were delicious, and the sides great too (I was grateful to the waitress for advising me against ordering a third side dish as the portions are huge!).

Finally, we shared sticky toffee pudding and yoghurt ice cream which were fab too. And I am pleased to report that unlike previous evenings elsewhere, the quality of the service did not decline as the evening wore on! So that we left the restaurant feeling very pleased with our choice for our last night in Amsterdam.

“Found on Tripadvisor”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

As usual, the first thing we do when we're visiting a new town is check Tripadvisor for a good place to eat. The Vlaming is rated as one of the best.

We made reservations from the hotel for 6 PM, which is when they open. I think we could have been seated without a reservation, since we were the first ones there, but it didn't take long before other customers started coming in, and I did hear them being asked if they had reservations.

It's a small quaint place, nicely decorated.

The two waiters (owners?) were very friendly and attentive.

My wife and I shared a shrimp appetizer, tuna steak, French fries, vegetables, and a salad. And for desert we each had Limoncellos which they made there. It was all delicious and more than enough for the both of us.

“Nice, but I expected more”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It's typical of Amsterdam not to find traditional food, then we wanted to try something particular suggested by friends. Well: cozy and friendly atmosphere, good food (but not exeptional), right quality/price ratio. Nice way to spend dinner time in Ams :)
