Top ways to experience De Plantage
The area
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
How to get there
  • Weesperplein • 9 min walk
  • Waterlooplein • 10 min walk

A birthday party is ruined.

The establishment is unfairly popular and doesn't live up to expectations.
It's hard to get in, but in fact you get poor service and messy toilets. The room is cold, but they don't offer blankets nor adjust to a comfortable temperature. The waiters do not recommend dishes and are sceptical of foreigners, the menu is not intuitively clear. An absolute surprise for the birthday girl was the presence of long women's hair in the dish, although the waiter said that it was the wool of a real lamb. But we can see that it is hair (picture attached) and a bug that we found in meat.
They apologized sparingly and removed the dish from the bill.
Overall service rating of the place is 2/10.
1 point for the sparkling wine, which we chose ourselves.
1 point for the strachatella, but now not sure about the quality of the dish.

Everything is above average at reasonable price and service is minimal but friendly. The interior is good looking but bit noisy sometimes.

Excellent service, wonderful food, fabulous surroundings.

I have read reviews of this place that criticize bad or indifferent service; perhaps our experience was a reaction to them. Anyway our servers were attentive, responsive, knowledgeable about the menu, helpful and available. The place is quite beautiful (lonely planet is wrong about its former life; it was an exhibition space for the nearby zoo and a rentable event space, then the broadcast room for a local Dutch news station. And now) it’s a terrific restaurant!

Shared the terrine to start - delicious, great flavours. Had the pork belly and the duck for mains - both very very good. We had a few drinks, around €80 total. Very good value for the quality of food. The downfall was the service - it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good, especially for the venue.

Terrible service.
Aug 2019
This is the second time that I have visited this restaurant, and both times the service has been very poor. Even when the restaurant isn't busy.
The food prices are also very expensive for the size of the portions.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Nice neighbourhood

I'm not sure what the food photos are about as, from what I understand, this is a website of the neighbourhood De Plantage, which is indeed very pleasant and green and not very touristy, while still being very close to the centre of the city. Worth a stroll for sure!
