Description: Dining in the heart of Amsterdam? Bridges is located on one of Amsterdam's oldest canals and is the ultimate place to go to for an elaborate lunch or a delicious dinner. It is a place where every ‘Amsterdammer’ feels at home; with inviting service, hospitality and conviviality. Bridges is a unique restaurant with a dynamic atmosphere, where you can enjoy a relaxing lunch in the afternoon and delicious wine-food combinations and surprising cocktails in the evening. It is a place where 'the exceptional accessible' is. Executive Chef Andrès Delpeut is continuously looking for creative ways to establish perfection in his dishes; from a classic burger to seabass in salt crust. He uses international influences in his creations and gives them a unique, personal twist. Our Wine Director, Lotte Wolf, assures the perfect wine pairings are served to accompany your dish.

Service was great as expected from a Michelin restaurant. Dishes were beautiful though were not well balanced in our opinion. At times the flavors simply did not make sense.
Overall we expected more.

Somewhat "buried" inside the 5-star Grand (Sofitel) is this Michelin 1-star fine dining. Instead of ordering the tasting menu which consists of few fish dishes, we ordered ala carte: Fois Gros & Truffle Risotto, and Half-raw Gamba (red prawn) & slow-cooked veal with bone-marrow ravioli, all excellent with a touch of Japanesy. Accompanied by a glass of champagne then excellent Reisling, followed by desert & coffee, the bill came to €250 which is well worth of this class of fine dining. Service was attentive while not over-bearing. Definitely worth returning when visiting Amsterdam again.

We booked this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and was blown away with the slick service, informative and helpful staff. Each course of the tasting menu was outstanding, beautifully presented and tasted amazing, just what you would expect from a fine dining restaurant. Definitely worth every penny, especially for a special occasion. Cannot wait to return and would highly recommend.
