This restaurant is an absolute gem. I discovered it on Open Table by chance on a business trip. Great service and exceptional food. You don't get a menu, you get what you're given. And if you like to be surprised by incredible, Michelin-starred type flavour-explosion food, then you're in for an amazing treat. From the amuse bouche to the freshly baked bread to the little surprises between the courses, it's all fantastic. I took three courses, a gin and tonic and a glass of wine and still had change for 50 euros. If this restaurant were in London, it would be charging at least double and would be packed out. Go!

Simply spectacular. What a terrific dining experience !
Chefs menu, every dish a secret til presented.
Presentations were artful and eclectic. Service was excellent. Was with my daughter and her two college mates. They were agog with excitement every course.
Chef accommodated one with some diet restrictions without a blink. A top-10 meal for me.

It was my second time there and I will gladly come again. The food is exquisite - you can call it art on the plate. But the real deal in that restaurant is the family who runs it. It gives the location the soul which many others are lacking. Just a lovely place to be and enjoy.

Truly a gem! The young chef is creative and smart in his use of very fresh ingredients. The owner-waitress is charming and helpful. All of the dishes we had were superb, from the beet appetizer through halibut and quail courses to an astonishing chocolate dessert which included a passion fruit-filled “ball.” Wines were well selected and reasonably priced. We would love to return and be surprised again by a menu that changes every evening!

Went here to celebrate a 5 year anniversary. The food was delicious and really fun not knowing what was coming until it was placed in front of you. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and they were great about making sure the dishes were okay for me to eat. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend for a nice occasion!

Creative and delicious dinner with friendly, gracious service. Each course was a tasty and memorable surprise. Miso soup with lemon grass, for example, was served in test tubes. If ever we return to Amsterdam, we’d love to dine at Singel 101 again.

Julia (the owner) is wonderful, welcoming and accommodates all special requests. We dine at Singel 101 every year, and she remembers us and greets us with a big hug. The food is amazing and wine selections to pare with each course.

We have eaten at Singel 101 a few times now. The service is always great and the food is the best I have sampled in Amsterdam. They cater for my husband who is gluten intolerant and my vegan son without a fuss. We all love the concept and have never been disappointed by the menu.

In one word: perfect. Everything from the location, the very friendly staff, the great food, the concept etc. It was for the first time trying this concept of meal without a menu. We choose the 5 course meal and a white wine (very good wines). Every dish was a very nice surprise. The ingredients used were so different but so well put together. We will come back for sure.

Meerdere malen gegeten in Singel101 iedere 6 weken nieuw origineel menu. Aparte goede wijnen.
5 gangen menu was origineel, smaakvol en verfijnd. Opmaak van de gerechten is zeer verzorgd. De bediening is hartelijk en geïnteresseerd in de gasten.

What an unexpected treat. Although you do not have any options other than choosing between a 3, 4 or 5 course meal you will not be let down. The food was carefully prepared and tasted amazing. Our only regret was that we didn't get all 5 courses, we really missed out on the 5th course that was a homemade pasta! Suggest taking the plunge and trying all 5! Well worth the price. Reservations a must as the food is prepared daily and the place is small.

What a great surprise!! We found Singel 101 in Opentable and were a little skeptical when we walked in. Julia welcomed us with a smile and explained that they don't have a menu but you can choose among a 3, 4 or 5 course dinner. We chose the 4 course because when you don't know anything the midway sounds safe. What a great surprise. From the amuse-bouche to the 2 starters of sea bass and burrata, the meals were flawless. Main was a nice piece of steak with orzo and we finished off with a cherry and white chocolate dessert. All watered down by Chilean and Portuguese wine. To our surprise, we found out that Julia, the owner, is a very chatty and friendly Chilean. The only thing we kept repeating is that we will be back.

Great concept offering price fixed 3, 4 or 5 course dinner with set menu. Excellent food and presentation. Owner works the front and is delightful. Reasonably priced--even the wines.
