Bluespoon - Andaz Hotel
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.
Very helpful friendly staff and great service dealing with me and my colleagues turning up unexpectedly for lunch and delivering perfectly without fuss.
We had the 5 course taster menu with wine. We could not fault the food , nor the wine . The decor and ambiance is perfect and the staff are very friendly and accommodating.
Nice place good food and service
the brunch was amazing. great food and great service!
Soooo good and nice people there. We enjoyed coktails as well. Very fresh and well balanced.
We ordered a 7 course tasting menu. The courses were spaced far too much apart with 20-30 minutes between each. The food was just ok. We sat for over 4 hours and were eager to leave.
Bread before the meal was fantastic, main menu was fabulous, wines were great, dessert couldn't keep up the great experience, coffee not hot enough. Kind staff made the evening all but perfect.
The food was really good as well as the service.
It’s a cosy restaurant in a fantastically designed hotel. They serve little bites in between courses, on the house. The recipes are truly creative and refined.
Loved it, will be back.
A bit pretentious and food not imressive
Wonderful food with amazing good service. The very nice thing is also that you have enough space between the tables to have a good conversation. I come to this restaurant at least once a month
My all time favorite go to place for brunch. Tried other placed but I keep coming back to Bluespoon.
Very dutch but waiters all foreign. Felt that we had to hurry up.
The waiter was very slow despite the fact that we were almost the only ones in the restaurant. And she forgot some of our order. The salad was crunchy like it had had sand or soil in it. I gave up eating it. The chicked and the fries were very good.
We have visited Andaz Hotel before for cocktails and had a great time at the bar as we did on this visit too. Because of our experience in the bar we decided to eat in the restaurant as well this visit. We were very much looking forward to the evening and having the tasting menu with wine pairing. We were the only people in the restaurant which probably didn’t help with the ambiance but the service was lacking in any enthusiasm, the sommelier seemed thoroughly bored with having to explain anything, maybe this was because he is starting his own business in a few weeks? The food was expensive and very underwhelming, really not worth the cost, in particular the Wagyu beef was actually quite horrible. Overall sadly we were very disappointed, we won’t be coming back or recommending.
Ambience is really wonderful, including the open kitchen without any glasses. The food is very good but not amazing. Our coffees came cold, even with the restaurant not full. Worth a visit
The food is good, artistically presented, but over priced.
I make it an absolute point to eat here every time I am in Amsterdam for business. It is a pleasure to dine here. The wait staff is knowledgeable and pleasant. The food is always special, elegantly presented, and innovative.
Above and beyond all expectations. Never had a brunch like this before, and I probably never will again. From the unlimited cava to the perfect gnocchi to the sweet - oh, so sweet! - end, everything went as smooth as a well-brewed and expertly shaped cappuccino (not unlike the one that came at the very end. We left overwhelmed and slightly overweight. Well done, all involved.
We were only in Amsterdam for a couple of days but wanted to eat somewhere special for my birthday. This place did not let us down. The restaurant was just what we were after, charming and relaxed. We had booked the Ed Sheeran menu but soon changed to the Vegetarian 5 course menu. Every dish was absolutely delicious and there was plenty in between, amuse bouche, local bread and brioche etc! Highly recommend! It was also nice how we were not made to feel rushed... the table was ours for the evening and the courses had a nice amount of time between each to allow the evening to be extended. Would definitely come again.
Honestly, it was very average in terms of food and ambiance. I don’t understand all the 5 star reviews. The service was great, but that was it.
We had a fantastic dinner here on our first night back in Amsterdam. We liked it so much that we ate our next two breakfasts there as well. I think we’ll be back when next in Amsterdam, although we live halfway around the world.
Great moment in a good atmosphere!
Special thanks to the very professional and passionate wine waiter!
Very nice hotel, well located on the prinsengracht
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 had the 4 course option (lack of time)- everything we had inc in between courses- amuse bouche was divine !!!
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.....
It was expecting to have a brunch buffet but there were only one main course with other small tastings.
Food of middle level.
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 ✅❤️😃
Fantastic culinary experience in beautiful surroundings, with great service. We really enjoyed our time and would highly recommend this restaurant!
good food, good drinks and good times ;-)
would for sure recommend this place to friends.
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.
The service was outstanding!
We had the 6 course with wine, very good meal.
The venue is beautiful and there is a beautiful garden at thr back!
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.
Brunch was a surprise set up......walking buffet expecting rest ok small portions but overall very good
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.
One of the most original and satisfying meals (not only a brunch) that we've ever had! The presentation and taste combinations were truly unique and outstanding. Service was top-notch and the atmosphere was splendid.
