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.

This was a special occasion to celebrate our anniversary and it was a very enjoyable afternoon made even more special now that we are in lockdown again so this was the last restaurant we were able to visit. The food as always was excellent (especially the beef wellington, steak tartare and lobster salad). The staff were all very friendly and very helpful in particular the member of staff who was dedicated to our table.

We had a nice dinner. Beautiful dishes. The timing of the food was not right we had to wait a very long time in between, too long. Someone had vegan and it seemed as if it had to be decided on the spot what dishes were suitable for this person, nor was this person included in the timing of the other three guests. We had called in advance and announced that one of the guests wanted to eat vegan. The acoustics and the music were way too loud! The wait staff was downright unprofessional except for one person. It was served which was served over the plates of others, not tasty. Too bad and some things were really not in order.

We came an hour before our reservation and they gladly allowed us to take a table. The food was OUTSTANDING! We celebrated a birthday and were given a small treat on the house. The service was amazing. All in all we left absolutely elated. Thank you for having us :)

The staff is very friendly and attending👍👍! The lightning is very strange in this restaurant, (the electricity is a problem so they told us) so sometimes the light is bright, sometimes it turns darker, very irritating. And the acoustic is not great, very loud maybe because of the hight of the ceiling. The food is fine I recommend the prawns in champagne sauce. The steak tartare was full with hard pieces but immediately the waiter offered us the drinks from the house and that was a nice gesture

The food was good but the ambiance is too loud, the food comes in an uncoordinated way and the service was just ok. All of that of course considering the price. The overall value was just ok.

We would not go there again.

Had a delicious dinner but it is extremely annoying to be asked to leave the table after two hours for such an expensive restaurant. We were asked to go to the lounge where the chairs are extremely uncomfortable and we left quite early because of this. Not a good place to go when you want to catch up with friends as you will be thrown out after two hours. Really a shame. Would be going much mote often if they didn’t have this stupid rule. Same issue at Mr Porter. This is the reason I often chose other restaurants as I want to feel welcome and I want to feel like I don’t have to watch the time and have a nice and relaxing time out.

Goede locatie en perfecte bediening. De muziek keuze is minder en het volume is te hoog om een normale conversatie te voeren. Prijs kwaliteit verhouding is een beetje uit het verband.

Eten was perfect.
Geen specifieke aandacht voor vegetariërs.
Maar de snelheid van opdiening (alle voor en hoofdgerechten kwamen al binnen half uur op tafel) gaf een opgejaagd en onnodig onwelkom en onaangenaam gevoel.

The restaurant has a wonderful, gezelig atmosphere and the food is truly delicious. I was mesmerized by the zucchini and tuna tartar starters. Do make a reservation if you are planning to visit and be aware that it gets quite crowded and loud in the weekend for dinner. That makes the staff to be less attentive and slower to react. They forgot my bday goodie and we had to ask for the check after having waited for someone to notice we have finished our dinner. Nevertheless, the staff is very respectful, always smiling and very reactive to everything we wanted.

Great high tea and wonderful service but not very friendly on the phone. The sweet part of the high tea was very bad (except the scone!), it was basically cream in different forms and shapes. Very disappointing. The savory part was great. The scone was the best i ever had. But really more variation is needed for the sweet part of the tea! Wonderful tea’s, great quality.

Nice restaurant good food and excellent service. Only got a strange feeling when the sommelier offered a 200 eur bottle of wine and gave us a degraded feeling when I asked for the price and did not want to order it. Other staff was very nice. Thanks Jos

First disappointment ever in a Michelin Restaurant(and that on my Birthday...), not being told there was a time slot we felt very rushed and staff was too pushy. Starters not ok from price/value perspective, main and desert perfect. We like to take our time for dinner so hopefully next time better.......

Very rushed service, raising our stress level at each contact, rather then adding to a relaxing experience. To be honoust disappointing and unnescessary. A bit less pushy and rushed would make a big difference in this nice environment.
