Unfortunately, my wife and I had high hopes for this place, as it was our last dining experience before we left Amsterdam.
To start, the service staff has not been properly educated on the menu items. Several times the server had to leave the table to get a simple question answered, and that was after we had ordered items that they apparently no longer had in-house. We were not informed of these missing menu dishes until well after we had looked everything over.
Every dish, (except the patatas bravas) came out barely warm...and the kitchen was roughly 10 meters from our table.
The cuttlefish dish was memorable, simply because it had barely any cuttlefish in it.
To top it all off, the staff cleared the surrounding tables of everything except the silverware, which naturally seems to signal that they wanted everyone to leave.
Overall, the service was poor, the food was not worth the price and the ambiance felt like sitting in a hotel lobby.
On a positive note, the cocktails were excellent and the barman really knew his stuff. I was also very impressed with how quiet the open kitchen was.
I recommend avoiding this restaurant on your trip to Amsterdam.
Service and food were terrible! Would not recommend
We had a great dinner on the terrace on the edge of the canal. Very good evening eating excellent seafood paella and lab while watching the boats go by.
The design at the restaurant/hotel is absolutely beautiful, the service was good and all the waiters were really friendly and professional.We enjoyed the food, but it was a bit too oily for our taste and a lot of the items on the menu contained deep fried stuff. Overall we had a good evening.
Nice setting but starter was cold and potatoes weren’t cooked. Staff were really nice and replaced the dishes. I believe a discount would have been a nice gesture considering the issues and delays but this was not forthcoming. I doubt we will return
Goede bediening, restaurant was gesloten dus zaten in de lobby/bar wat minder was qua sfeer.
Far better service & ambiance in comparison to alternatives in the same/higher price range.
Outdoor seating is well arranged, not intrusive or overcrowded - which is rare for most canal terraces.
Had a great time.
Mooi ingericht restaurant bij groot hotel, vriendelijke bediening, het eten is veel eenvoudiger dan ik zou verwachten op deze locatie en voor deze prijs. Ik had zeebaars en behalve wat nogal vette gegrilde groenten en aardappels was er geen saus bij, de vis was goed gebraden maar saai.
Amazing food and everything else.
The best cheesecake ☺️☺️☺️
Highly recommend. Plus, Sabrina (our host) was awesome
The ambiance and interior are good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The cocktails were wonderful. The food (dinner) was alright. The music (in both the bar and the restaurant) was much too loud and of a genre that I would not choose for a place where conversations are had..
Very friendly and engaging staff members! The cocktails are unique and tasty. The food was delicious, one dish was exactly enough for one person.
I was quite surprised by the prices, which are very affordable for an edgy looking restaurant, especially in Amsterdam. Definitely recommending it!
Excellent service, drinks, food and view!! Price quality was amazing for Amsterdam. We will definitely be back!
Lovely staff, service and ambiance. I found the music a touch too loud. I would have loved to see better vegan option(s) on the menu. The vegan main dish offered was underwhelming- a cold dish of 3 sliced avocados with quinoa on top.
Looking forward to seeing improvements. Thank you!
Super nice friendly service, good prices and delicious tapas!
Very friendly service and great atmosphere in the restaurant
Was nice clean and tasty
Tweede keer dat wij hier gegeten hebben. Ambiance is top, de kaart veelzijdig en het eten uitmuntend!

My husband and I spent Valentine there and had a fantastic experience; that’s why I reserved a table when our daughter came to visit us from London. The ambiance and the service were outstanding , but the food wasn’t what I remembered.....
I ordered a Seabass , expecting to have a Chilean Seabass (the chef is from Chile) but I had a looked like branzino instead (was it a Seabass??) , slightly sour (too much lemon) and overcooked.....
To expensive for the food we had

Great food, hostess, look and feel. They did forget to bring our drinks twice but that was more than compensated for by their hospitality.

Hands down the best restaurant I've found in The Netherlands. The food was amazing, the manager was very nice and hospitable, and the ambiance was really cool. They follow COVID guidelines and are organized. Best service as well, unlike many places in Europe where you wait until someone comes to your table. We'll definitely be regular customers.

Very helpful friendly staff and great service dealing with me and my colleagues turning up unexpectedly for lunch and delivering perfectly without fuss.
I dine here ever time I am in Amsterdam, and several times during the visit. The menu is delightful, flexible and the wine selection is thoughtful and quite unique. I love how the food is presented and it tastes as good as it looks. The staff and service is consistently excellent. Excellent value for what you receive, as well. Visit and enjoy!
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.
