Got off to a very poor start when our party of 4 arrived and ordered drinks-20+mins later we had to ask for our drinks...then we ordered food and I was unable to order my 1st choice of main (sold out/no longer available) I asked for my 2nd choice only to be informed it wasn't available (the kitchen didn't have time to make it....!) Food duly ordered 3 of the party's starters arrived, alas mine wasn't one of them! Had to wait an additional 10 mins plus for mine to arrive by which time the other members of the party had eaten theirs!
The quality of the food and drink (in our case white wine -Chablis) were excellent, I opted for the vegetarian choices, both starter (Puy lentils and ricotta cheese) and main (Assorted nuts, cranberry, celeriac, flageolet & carrot) were delicious. The dessert of Pannacotta with orange -ginger ice cream topped of an excellent value 3 course dinner offer @ 29.50 Euros each.
As we had a few issues a senior member of staff stepped in to rectify the situation and at at the end of the evening he very kindly made a significant adjustment to the bill to reflect the problems we had encountered and the fact the restauaruant were very sorry about the situation.
I would return to the Bistro Berlage and would indeed recommend it because of :
a) The beautiful building and interior
b) The quality of the food and drinks
c) The effort one particular member of staff went to to rectify/recompense the situation (I can't remember his name for the life of me!!)
The Restaurant listened and accepted our verbal feedback, I promised them I would write a truthful but fair review of our evening on Saturday 1st Dec 2018.
Booked a reservation and arrived on time, was refused to be seated. There were plenty of tables.
Hostess muy desatenta y cuando llegamos parecía que estaba cerrada, y tardaron muvho en llevar bebidas, llego comida antes que bebidas.
Food was outstanding but took forever. Service was great.
The menu doesn't have many options and the salads are expensive. But the sandwiches are delicious. Service is also really good!
