Server was friendly and the food was delicious
For the last 15 years, every time I go to Amsterdam, I've been going to the Garlic Queen. I am glad to say, it is as good as always!! I love the food and it's truly a unique experience.
I was sad that their signature dish of Beef Stew with lots of pieces of garlic was unavailable on the night
We were in Amsterdam for only a few days and had eaten here almost 8 years ago. It was such a memorable experience that we wanted to return. Everything we ate was delicious and served with a smile. We recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly!
The food was excellent. Our waiter, although pleasant, was somewhat absent. After our meal was delivered we didn't see him again for a long time. In fact, I was going to order another glass of wine but by the time we saw him again our main course was finished and we decided to have coffee and desert somewhere else.
The duck however was outstanding as was the tomato salad. I would go back again for the duck, but I'd make sure I had a seat closer to where the waiter was and not far way by the window.
We stopped here when we first got into Amsterdam. High quality preparation & tasty dishes. Garlic is used throughout but not overpowering or exhaustive ... very tasty. One server so service depends on crowd... overall a great choice. I recommend!
The problem we had was feeling that they could care that we were dining in their restaurant. Also the chef and the waiter sat outside the restaurant smoking almost the whole time with the smoke coming in through the open front window. Does not help your eating experience with all the smoke.
Wij hadden een tafel bij het raam. Bediening was tegen ons vriendelijk, iets minder tegen andere gasten waar iets mis was met de reservering/vouchers. Bediening en chef stonden frequent pal voor de open deur buiten te roken waarbij je de rook binnen kon ruiken. Kaart is simpel, wij hadden meer inventieve knoflookgerechten verwacht. Wel leuk dat ze knoflook bier en liqeur serveren. De gebakken knoflookbol uit de oven was erg lekker. Jammer dat het brood dat erbij geserveerd werd gewoon casino-wit was.
Delicious! Creative use of garlic but not overpowering.
excellent food from appsetixers to dessert.
Perfekt Garlic Menu without gluten. A must go in Amsterdam
Wij zijn door goede reclame bij de Garlic Queen terecht gekomen. De maaltijd was uitmuntend. De smaken zijn zeer verrassend ook al zal de naam niet voor iedereen het water in de mond doen lopen. De verse pasta en het chocolade-ijs zijn betoverend. We vonden het wel jammer dat de hoofdschotel net niet genoeg was waardoor het dessert eerder aan te raden was. We hadden die avond ook juist de tegenslag om juist naast een heel luidruchtige tafel te zitten. Dit is zeker niet negatief bedoelt tegenover de GQ-crew. Niet iedereen weet hoe hij zich dient te gedragen in een klasse zaak. Wij komen zeker nog terug en mochten ze in Antwerpen een 2de zaak starten komen we zeker op bezoek.
We love garlic and loved the Garlic Queen! Terrific food and service. A gem!
The food was great and we enjoyed the novelty experience of having garlic in everything--beer, chocolate ice cream, etc! The downside was the service; while the restaurant is small enough to operate with one server, we found that he spent more time heading outside to smoke in between taking orders that he sometimes forgot things or neglected the diners. The smoking while serving was a bit off-putting but we shrugged it off as we were on vacation and it was NYE.
What a hidden charm. We enjoyed everything! The garlic baker is a must. Also has the Garlic soup which was yummy! The catch of the day was cooked to perfection and the chocolate garlic ice cream, wow!!
It was good food but nothing super special and more of a novelty than anything else.
Found this gem of a restaurant through OpenTable and decided to give them a try because we love garlic! It was a rainy summer weeknight evening, but we sat outside on the front patio under the umbrella and enjoyed some wine and the garlic baker watching the pedestrians stroll by.
The service was attentive, the food great and a generous portion.
The entree we both chose the filet mignon with ratatouille, mashed potatoes and a delicious garlic sauce.
Had the special dessert of the evening, the cookie dough cheesecake with chocolate garlic ice cream! It was a first, but it was really good!
The only thing I would do differently next time I return (because I will) is that we will each get our own Garlic baker to start off with!
