I have been wanting to go to Elkaar for years and last Sunday night I came here to eat dinner with a friend. I loved everything about this restaurant, from the genuinely warm reception I received from Isabel to the cosy ambience (think dim lights and candles) and stylish furniture and fittings (the walls are festooned with a colourful collection...

We to Elkaar for dinner the other night and was really impressed. Nice atmosphere and staff. Menu was small but interesting and the food was super! Nicely presented and really tasty. Found the Euro 37 for a three course dinner a really good price. Would definately recommend anyone to go. We left super happy!

We booked a table at the Elkaar, since wanted a restaurant close to our accommodation and since it was recommended by the Michelin Guide 2016. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice and classy. Most of the other guests were quite elderly, so as a young couple we felt a bit out of place, but it did not bother... More

We had dinner with two couples in this cosy rather small restaurant. They offer three to five course dinners that you can compose yourself from the menu. Food is very tasty, but some portions are rather small. We drank the open house wine, also okay but not very special. Staff is efficient and friendly. Prices were fair related to the... More

The restaurant is very warm and is attending by its owners who undoubtedly make the difference, the food is exquisite, the chef achieves perfect synchrony of colors, aromas and flavors.

I went there with my wife and we had one of the best meals we have ever had. The food was absolutely fantastic, beautifully presented and made with fresh ingredients, and with a lot of care and thought. Every piece of each dish has been smartly designed and everything blends perfectly together. The service was top-notch, they were very kind,... More

Went there on a Saturday. Although the restaurant is small, the service was super slow. We were so tired of waiting that we skipped dessert. The starters were delicious, but the main course was below average. The wine by glass was not good.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
