THE DUCHESS, inspired by the splendour and eminence of the Belle Époque, took residence in Amsterdam as of the summer of 2015. True to her imperial roots, THE DUCHESS resides in one of the best-kept historic gems, the former KAS Bank and W Hotel Amsterdam, where she will introduce her guest to the elegance of traditional London hospitality balanced with Viennese grandeur. Her royal nature is captured in the refined flavours from Southern France and Italy, known as Nouveau-Niçoise Cuisine. The custom-made Molteni kitchen is an impressive centrepiece fit for a royal, where the light and pure dishes arise alongside decadently delicious desserts. THE DUCHESS menu is one of intricate simplicity with eclectic classics as luscious Fruits de Mer platters, Rotisserie and grill specialties as well as homemade ice-cream coupes prepared at the table.

There was no wow factor and defnly not memorable enough to justify such high price levels. The service felt rushed and also with limited flexibility even though they say they can be flexible, when it came to actual requests, they declined. If you are looking for getting a really fabulous and memorable experience due to a special occasion (like we expected for our anniversary), i will not recommend this place. If you are just looking for a classy ambience and good food, this could work, if you dont mind paying so much for it.

We shared a number of dishes & they took cognisance of my husbands fool intolerances. Our waiter was welcoming & did his very best, however there was not enough staff to be able to service all tables sufficiently, we were left with empty glasses on several occasions. The food unfortunately was not exceptional, in fact there were only 3 out of a total of 10 dishes which truly were excellent. Disappointing. At the end of our meal we were told that they had another booking waiting to use our table & could we move to the lounge area, which we did, although we were perplexed as we have never experienced a Michelin restaurant having more than one sitting on a table in any given lunch or dinner service. No-one offered us tea or coffee once we were moved to the lounge area and there were no staff servicing the area. Finally having been moved from our table abruptly & receiving no further service, we decided to leave. When we asked for the bill at the reception desk (there was no other alternative but to stand & wait) the server indicated that she believed our bill had been paid & that was why we had been moved to the lounge! She left us standing to go & check, presumably, then came back & asked us how our meal was. We indicated that it was just 'okay' but she wasn't interested in our feedback. Finally the same server had to get a colleague who I assume may have been management, due to an issue with my credit card, who also asked how our meal was, again we replied it was 'okay' - again there was no interest in why it was just okay & not fantastic or amazing etc. Quite honestly a very, very poor example of a Michelin starred restaurant - I can barely believe they even have one! Service & attention to detail was lacking & no-one seemed to care.

We nearly missed the chance to have dessert, as the kitchen was going to close - another consequence of getting our table later than expected. However, service was great and it was a cool environment.

We didn’t get seated until 905. Frustrating when you see people arrive after you and seated before you when you also made a reservation. The service by our waiter was excellent, and the shared plate experience was great.

Limited but solid wine selection and excellent cocktails. Beautiful and ambient room (Friday night) with impressive acoustics across the table given the size of the room and number of people. Service was good but not overly impressive.

The restaurant states they have sharing plates but then with the main dishes the expectation is you buy sides. So mashed potatoes plates are for sharing.! Also due to the “concept” the plates do not come at the same time so we got main course fish first 5 minutes later asparagus then 10 minutes later mashed potatoes. Complete nonsense and add to that overpriced for the taste and quality; very disappointed. I will not return.
