Situated just outside SLoterdijk Station I decided to give it a go following a visit to Central Amsterdam and not wanting to eat in the Hotel and I am glad I did. The restaurant was really busy but got asked almost immediately if I wanted a drink followed by the Menu. The service was second to none and the staff... More

We dropped in to this quaint little cafe very close to our hotel after coming off a long flight. The staff were very warm and friendly and the service quick and efficient. The food was very tasty and nothing wrong with the portion size. The pricing was reasonable and I would definitely recommend this spot for everyone from single diner... More

The Grandcafe Hermes is conveniently located near the Mercure Hotel and Holiday Inn at Sloterdijk Station. I was there on a Friday night after a business trip, and I found the seating to be relatively easy to obtain. I would describe the décor as elegant with nice lighting, real candles and home-like furnishings. In general you need to be patient... More

Went there on the first day we arrived at the hotel. Food tasted great but be aware this is not a budget restaurant. I had the surf and turf (steak and prawns) served with salad and chips and it cost around €23 euros. The portion size wasn't the biggest either. My friend had the rump steak and it was pretty...

If you are in the Sloterdijk area on business and/or in one of the local hotels, this probably the best place to eat. Nothing fancy - simple honest food. No specials, just steak, burger, surf-n-turf, a couple of veggie options. One bonus, they do proper English chips, not silly "French Fries"!

Peter was able to adjust his menu to the gluten free needs of our family. He went out of his way and took great care in assuring that it was safe for our son to eat. The whole meal was delicious and we had a great night out!

I was utterly disappointed by the disinterested service staff. We were greeted by a rude female staff in her 40s to be seated at the back of the restaurant. We then waited for a long time to be served. Our main course was served after an hour long wait even though the restaurant was not crowded at all. The staff... More

In a Business suburb of Amsterdam very near Sloterdijk station (main entrance) this surprising popular grand cafe. Yes there are some hotels nearby and a major bus station (also for Flixbuses for international long distance) but even in the morning there were travelers who could find their way to breakfast. Not that expensive people come for lunch and dinner too.... More

I came to this place about 3-5 times in a year which mostly to enjoy their best spare ribs until yesterday.... Their spare ribs used to be so tender, immediately falling apart from the ribs and even grandpa could eat it easily. But yesterday was totally different. The meat was hard, sticky to the ribs and the baked potatoes were... More

Stayed close to this Resturant and we came on our first night. Had the steak and it was delightful. Asked for ice cream and the presentation was very good not just dumped in a bowl. Came back our last night and just as good. It appears to be closed Saturday and Sunday due to it being in the businesses district... More
