After eating at the competitor "The Pantry" the previous evening, and having a wonderful meal, I half expected that De Blauwe Hollander wouldn't live up to our expectations, but it was really a first rate experience. The service was not only prompt and friendly, but very helpful in suggesting meals and drinks, and even provided a free round of drinks when one of the dishes took a little longer than expected to prepare. The menu here is surprisingly extensive, with a few more creative dishes. The four of us ordered traditional Dutch dishes and were all very pleased. I will say that this establishment is a bit pricier than it's competitor, but the food is every bit as good, and there is more variety (though less variety in the drink menu). Expect to pay ~18 Euro per meal.

We wanted to experience the dutch cuisine and picked up this restaurant. It turned out to be the right decision. The foods are very delicious and the portions are generous. Try one of the Hotchpotch in the menu. I had carrot and onion with tender beef and it was great. Steak is also tasty. From the desserts, try grandmothers' homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Wine card contains quality wines from different regions. Service is not very fast but the food's worth waiting. I recommend here both for lunch and dinner.

I decided to try some traditional Dutch food and was not disappointed with this restaurant. I also tried another establishment across the street which gets a higher score on trip advisor, but I honestly thought that, though the other is fine, the food here was much better. Great value for money too as the food is hearty and plentiful. I’m a real sweet addict and had to say no to dessert, which doesn’t happen often Had I been in Amsterdam for longer I would definitely have eaten there again.
As the food is quite warming and filling,good winter fare, I wonder if the menu changes in summer time?

Typical Dutch cuisine in a friendly restaurant with helpful and professional service. Large selection of dishes featuring many variations of hotchpotch. Really enjoyable and value for money.
