I was here one year and an half ago and i just have to confirm the place: Food! Wine! Atmosphere! Service! Top, top, top, top. Then it is a bit fare from the center... but the good thing is that you have not much tourists;-))) Let's try another approach of Amsterdam gastronomy on his best side! They have a garden... More

An amazing dining experience, with great food, good service and an enjoyable setting. We had the 5 course tasting menu and loved every bit of it. Was a great way to spend our last evening in Amsterdam and I couldn't recommend it enough.

This restaurant reminds me of Heston Blumenthal cooking but the advantage here is that you do not have wait half an hour in between each course, food is slightly wacky but delicious, without doing any spoiling of the surprises, the taste of the sorbet completely caught me out but I loved it and the way one of the courses is...

Wow! This was quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. The theatricality of the presentation was one thing. But to have food with such unusual, yet delicately balanced flavors put this restaurant on an exceptionally high level. Tastes should be interesting and combined to form a harmonic combination, like a musical chord. The subtlety of the palates of... More

This is an interesting restaurant doing imaginative things with local food. Delicious morsels are beautifully presented before the main event - complimentary. Main courses are fresh and delicious with a twist. Service charming, knowledgeable and engaging. Wonderful wine list. A special place for either a romantic occasion or an impressive dinner with clients.

I have been to various restaurants over the years, some of them michelin star rated, however this is one of the best I have ever been to. The service was impeccable throughout the evening - but not overbearing. With each of the recommendations perfect. The amuse bouche were works of art, almost a shame to eat. But eat them we... More

Finding Bolenius was the biggest challenge of our week's stay in Amsterdam but once we arrived (late) for our lunch reservation we had a memorable experience. The wait staff are both welcoming and professional. We ordered the fixed price two-course menu which included a starter of fresh garden vegetables (from their garden) served warm. The menu entree was fish. Additionally,... More

The best restaurant so far for me in amsterdam with crazy visual, taste and good prices. Two bad things: cocktails are quite limited in terms of choice and the quantity is extremely thin (even for such a restaurant)

Having lunch with an client at the Amsterdam Zuidas does not normally excite me ... until now! When entering the restaurant the Scandinavian interior does not immediately impress. But looking closer one sees that this is not your average IKEA furniture and that the attention to detail is high. Food and presentation are of 'Michelin-star' quality. The menu makes use... More
