The meal was superb. It was evident that there were many years of combined experience at Le Restaurant, they weren't 'experimenting' or 'discovering' food and flavours - it was very classic and the food was elegantly executed. The meal started off with modern and creative ideas which incorporated Asian influences, with with squid ink macarons with wakame and chicken skin... More

Everything from the service, the wine and right through all 12 courses of our tasting menu was divine. This meal is not cheap but you will remember it forever - probably the nicest meal I have ever had

It is unfortunately some time since we dined here, but it is good to know that this is still the best dining experience we know in Amsterdam. A charming ambiance, delightful staff and immaculate service, with excellent advice on wines - without the pretensions that you often find there. And then the food - so imaginative, so subtle, such wonderful... More

Serious food and wine lovers, there won't be many places in Amsterdam that will top this dining experience. Go with the full monty as this place offers the full package. Inspired food, flamboyant but extremely proficient service, and the ambience is of a place requiring suit and tie but it is surprisingly casual in that way. Loved the chefs offerings,... More

From the moment we entered Le Restaurant, we received flawless service and sublime food and wine. The staff ( several of whom I understand are partners in the venture) were friendly, knowledgeable, and classically trained. The courses and accompanying wine were introduced by either one of the chefs or the maître d'hôtel, and without exception, everything was superb. Even after... More

So, michelin places need to deliver excellence in food, flawless service with the right balance of humour, respect and knowledge, but mostly they need to deliver something unique and challenging and tasty that you wont find else where. At le restaurant, all of these are delivered in abundance. The food was wonderful, the service was invisible yet utterly effective, yet... More

On arrival the service and attention to detail was perfect. And the food... More

What a find.. This small comfortable and friendly restaurant was one of the highlights of my trip to Amsterdam. It had been recommended by a friend and I made the booking online. The restaurant is relaxed and very unassuming. The open kitchen ads a really nice atmosphere to the room and feels very welcoming. The front of house staff were... More

We had dinner with friends and it was fantastic. Food is possibly the best in Amsterdam and it is served with great wine in a friendly and passionate environment. Chef and maitre'd know what they're doing and doing it well. Even though we had a horrible group at the table behind us, we felt welcome, had a great dinner and... More

We had diner here in November and we enjoyed the food. Lots of variation and lots of different flavors. The service is ok not better or worse than an average restaurant where you would expect more. They are friendly but I recognize other comments, you sometimes get the feeling that your entering their house with their rules. Not my interpretation... More

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
