Although I work a stones throw from the Bak resto, I'd not tried it, and it was a real find. They managed to fit nearly 30 diners in from our company event on two long tables - and serve a delicious 3 course meal at a very reasonable price. For starters we had a fresh three beetroot salad (that was two more types of beetroot than I was generally aware of). Main course: delicious fish (I forget exactly what - I was trying to have a deep discussion). Desert, wine and service all very good.

It was a warm evening, so it was pretty hot and noisy - and they had put us towards the back of the restaurant which was fine - can't blame them. Nearer the front of the restaurant I could see they had more romantic tables for couples or fours, closer to the windows, with a lovely high view over the water. And it was full, so they must have good word-of-mouth.

I was very impressed, and looking forward to returning.

Pop-up restaurant, organic food, that is all we knew when we walked in with our group of many different nationalities for a business diner. By the time we left we were overwhelmed. This level of quality and creativity are hard to come by. Beautiful plates fitting the dish are arranged with colours, flowers and arrangements that are a feast to the eye. Followed by surprise and delight of our taste buds, when we started noticing the many different flavours. Our main course was meat at its most tender and tasty. Combine that with very good service, a warm, lively atmosphere and a beautiful view over the IJ river. This is an absolute 5. Make reservations, this may be the first review here, but the Amsterdammers have found it already. Its definitely off the beaten track, but not too far from Central Station.
