Modern Dutch Cuisine with a Playful Edge

In a quirky Marcel Wanders-designed setting on the canals, Bluespoon Restaurant takes the stiffness out of traditional fine dining, adding a light playful touch to a special dining experience in which every seasonal plate is a fresh and colourful work of art. No compromises are made on the quality of the food however, as the menu presents creative European dishes celebrating the best of Dutch ingredients with a unique modern twist. Led by Executive Chef Sander Bierenbroodspot, the Bluespoon team, a team from around the world but firmly rooted in Dutch soil, hope to delight, be it with an interesting story, a forgotten classic, a unique cocktail pairing, or an ingredient you might never have tried.

Food, wine, and service were all quite excellent.
However, the 5-course tasting menu with paired wine took over 3 hours to complete....far too much time waiting between courses....
There was a very loud and boisterous group at a large table in a garden-enclosed alcove. There should be a wall with a door to separate this area from the main dining room--to control this problem.

We complained about the meat from maincourse. They offerred us a coffee and dessert after we finished our dessert from the menu. So, 2 dessert is to much. A inappropriat solution.
Service is okay, but could be better. Came to ask twice etc.....

We went as a family with a 4 and 2 year old and we had a fantastic time. The staff we amazing with the children and went above and beyond to help us.
We were disappointed that the Sunday brunch buffet was no longer on offer as this had been amazing previously, but the current menu did not disappoint. Thank you for a lovely visit

It was our first time at Bluespoon. We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday with Mad Hatters brunch and it was very good. I like the concept and the food was delicious from the gazpacho, to main course, cheese platter to desserts and the unlimited cava, coffee and tea. The waitress is super amazing, she explained everything for us! I also get in touch with two customer service prior to going there because I arranged for a additional cake to be served for his birthday and it was fantastic! We really enjoyed the brunch ✅❤️😃

It was a very cool experience, what me and my friend was missing was a bit louder music and maby a bit more usage of the theme, like uniforms and such things, maybe it could have been a bit more creative and fun.

My wife and I had a really enjoyable evening at Bluespoon. We specially requested a table close to the kitchen so that we could easily see at close quarters the working of the chef and kitchen staff. We were rewarded with a completely engaging experience! The food was absolutely wonderful - perfectly presented and full of imagination. This is a modern restaurant, well designed with tables spaced not too close to other diners, exceptional and attentive staff who do really CARE. If we lived in Amsterdam and not in the UK we would keep returning.

The restaurant is gorgeous, with an open kitchen!
The service was unacceptable. We waited over an hour to get our first course from a 6 course tasting menus. Other diners who came in after us received their meals way before us. When asked what was going on our server said he would look into it and offered us more wine. When we asked again our server apologized and said he would get right on it. We canceled the rest of our meal. The restaurant was not busy... no explanation was given for the very poor service. We paid our check and left. The server was very nice, but didn’t make up for the unacceptable dining experience. We were looking forward to a fine dining experience on our last night in Amsterdam. That was not the case. Very disappointing.

The food was excellent and the staff was well-informed and helpful at every step. The prix fixed menu was interesting and presented new flavors. There is an unprinted vegetarian menu. Everything was beautifully plated; however you need to be prepared for a 2 to 3 hour leisurely dining experience, not a quick meal.

There are a lot of salty flavors, even in the savory desserts. I don't know enough about Dutch cuisine to know if this is common, but be prepared for -- as an example --salted apples in the dessert.

This is definitely a place to visit multiple times. The 4 course menu is a good value for the experience.

This place is fantastic! It’s in the Andaz Hyatt Hotel. I’ve been to the French Laundry owned by Thomas Keller and this place is at that level for one-third the price. The attention to detail was fantastic. The flavor combinations were culinary genius. It’s a prefix menu. My husband had the seafood and I had the vegetarian. They brought out bites of starters that were presented with attention to detail. My husband had mussels and I had a beet dish. Wow! Hubby’s main course was halibut mine was white asparagus and mushrooms. The bread plate was beautiful too and dessert was incredible. Definitely make a reservation. The hotel has a wonderful bar with lounge seating looking out to the canal. The perfect place to have a after dinner drink.

This hidden gem of a place is tucked away in a typical Amsterdam street by a canal and once you step inside you leave behind the cobbled streets and enter a calm oasis of creativity. The reception has a high ceiling with an innovative light system and this opens out onto an open kitchen and dining area...soon you realise every corner has some surprising and entertaining art and you simply have to photograph it. The chef's creations are no less artistic and in keeping with their surrounds, but definitely not form over function as the artistic beauty of the presentation was equalled by the flavour. What could have been simple dishes of Mussels and Halibut were elevated by the colourful presentation with good use of micro herbs and edible flowers. The Wine list enabled us to choose a local wine from Zeeland which complimented our meal perfectly. Staff too, couldn't have been more accommodating, recognising our need for a quiet corner and also that we had a deadline on our exploration of Amsterdam. Al-in-all...five stars!

The concept of bluespoon us not client friendly. You are obliged to take at least a four course menu. If you want to skip one dish you pay the a la carte price that makes three courses more expensive than four! They don’t offer the a la carte options. Waiter told this is a pilot and they will change it again. Come on!! Wines are extremely expensive, by the glass the cheapest option is 8 euro, and for that they give a bottom in a glass. I would not recommend to go here, which is a pity because the design of the place is great and the food pretentious.

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party brunch was a mass of lovely flavours delivered at a lovely leisurely pace fit for a Sunday afternoon. Bubbles were non-stop with lots of opportunity to savour the hotel atmosphere and the interesting design & art installations. All in all a pleasant afternoon with some lovely food and drink - well worth a try
