No Dutch was spoken, although we are Dutch and live in Amsterdam and the restaurant is in the centre of Amsterdam. The ambience is nice. We took the menu plus wine arrangement. The food was absolutely not up to Michelin star standard. Sea bass carpaccio too peppery and minuscule portions. Steak tartare was plain and tasteless, accompanied by indefinite pieces of chewy toast. Meat was okay, gluey mashed potatoes (!) from a package, unimaginative roasted asparagus. We never knew what red wine we had, because nobody told us. Dessert: chocolate explosion of cheap chocolate with puke inside. Next day we were sick, probably from steak tartare. It cost us 350 euro's!
Nice ambiance. The food is great. The staffs are friendly and provided great service. We had a great time.
Place was lovely! They did forget ours cocktails but when we made them aware they gave us them on the house. Also they didn’t really attend to you as expected. Apart from that the food was delicious and the atmosphere really nice, would definitely go back.
I had a delicious seafood pasta with a variety of excellent prepared pieces of seafood. The starters of tuna and seabass were really good but not as exquisite as the main course. Excellent service and international atmosphere. We had a lovely evening!
We really didnt like the food and the music choice. The food was expensive en not worth it. We were done in a hour.
Not Michelen star service. Waiters are polite but totally not personal touch. No wine recommendations. Glass empty and no offer of new wine. All running around with too loud music.
I have had so much more better service in cheaper places. Food is fine. Mash potatoes very disappointing. Wine is not poured at the table ???
Perfecte high tea, heerlijke hapjes. Goede service.
Waiter was not interested , slightly arrogant. generally beautiful ambiance, however strange bit dodgy clientele.
Nice atmosphere, food is overpriced for the quality.
Alles van de voorafjes menu. De rib was een beetje minder.
The waitress was amazing !
The food was really good too (and i am french...) and the cocktails were absolutely divines.
Thanks a lot
In times of Corona too crowded and unsafe. Let me say first that I don’t like the approach of Michelin star place to set max time you can stay! Very unfriendly! Food was okay but not fantastic. Price value is out of range. Spending just under €400 with two, there are much better places to go in Amsterdam. Service very bad, because too many customers. Not Michelin star worthy! Ordering an expensive bottle of champagne, but not there when the starters arrive, and having ask for it... Never ever I had this at a Michelin star restaurant. Stay away!
Good food, though a bit under-seasoned, but they didn't have doggybags which was pretty terrible, since we wanted to order a few different things to taste, but couldn't eat everything, so we had to leave quite a bit of food behind.
Staff a bit female unfriendly.
Music a bit too laud pretentious hip🤨
as usual, a very nice place to have lunch or dinner, very good quality
Always perfect- : food, service, music, environment
Best service i ever had! And the best thing was that they surprised us with some small firework because it was our 9 years anniversary
Great experience. Very special ambiance. Friendly staff. Service in English and Dutch was made available.
One suggestions: serve shared plates with its own cutlery, rather than each guest using its own fork/knife to scoop food from the shared plates.
Every dish was de-li-cious! Service excellent. Days after we still talk about the great dishes :)
The food is more than outstanding! Only problem is that they serve it at Mc Donalds speed. Next visit I will ask them to slow down a bit more! Atmosphere , location is super and the staff is very friendly
Great experience. Only comment is that with the exceptional high tropical temperatures it would have been nice to have AC ! But the food and service were excellent. Definitely highly recommended.
Had an lovely afternoon tea! Everything we ate was delicious and they even changed some of the courses to our preferences.
If you are as tall as me (19mcm) ask for a seat on a chair instead of the couch.
Waiter was really kind and explained everything well!
I would recommend this to other!
It was an amazing experience, from the starter until our desert! The service was amazing and the food was delicious! Amazing location and wonderful service. I can imagine there would be more noise when there are more people but still a must go!
As usual great food, good ambiance and great service
Consistently very good. Big menu, but some added specials here and there would not hurt for more frequent diners.
Perfect meat. Perfect service.
Wonderful drinks menu inside a Time Travel machine.
Lobster salad was delicious, beluga caviar pasta was also very delicious
Food and ambiance was good as always.. one of the best kitchen in the land!
Slow service but great bar team
It was a real pleasure to come in your restaurant.
The food was exceptional, our waitress was great and attentive.
A great experience, I would recommand it to everyone.
Always nice to eat in your restaurant. very nice service good atmosphere and great food. see you soon again... (work or private)
The menu had plenty of choice. It was very creative, the foie gras donuts were to die for
The presentation was amazing
The quality of food made it extremely excellent value for money
Thank you for helping us celebrate my husband/Dad’s 60th birthday in style
We went to The Duchess for my husband's birthday. Everything (food, service, athmosphere etc) was incredible and we left the place with a great satisfaction.
Actually this is a failure of Michelin. The fact that they give this restaurant a star is a sign getting deranged. If it wouldn't have a star I would say: just another overpriced Amsterdam restaurant in the higher range with reasonable food.
The building is nice but you forget it with the ambiance of the staff that is kind, but uncapable, clumsy and unwitty with what they do. They do try to be kind, but that doesn't Four different waiters in 4 minutes asking you the same, in different languages, asking for allergies that you already sent in advance that they didn't know of. All the time offering to poor our glasses so that we just couldn't get a conversation with the people on the table. No sommelier, no good winelist just one bottle under $ 100,- . The music very loud and the style not in place to our taste. The food was just good, would it be for half of the price. For this price - we ate (no drinks) for $ 120 pp- strong under level what one might expect. E.g. no amuses at all. The customers they attract don't help the atmosphere, mainly tourists, quite a few of them only with screens (laptops, phones) on the table not communicating with eachother with headsets and hoodies. Not just one table, quite a few. Amazing. Again, not my taste. If it is your's then this is your place.
Starters were great, but main course was disappointing simple (pepper steak & mashed potatoes, seriously?)
great and superb place, must visit when in town, great ambiance
The restaurant was not as expected. We have been to several Michelin star restaurants, and had some expectations coming in. Starting with the service, this was below average in level of attention and detail in explaining the dishes. The food itself was also mediocre at best, a lot of cheaper restaurants get you a better quality or at least something a bit more special. Overall we felt disappointed in the whole experience when we left.
High tea op zondag was een mooie en lekkere ervaring! Genoten van de verschillende thee soorten, kleine, lekkere, mooie hapje en taartjes in een schitterende ambiance.
Delicilous food in a stunning location
