I never thought the food and flavours could be so good in Amsterdam. This restaurant in the Amstel area really is a gem and along with super friendly staff this made for a great experience. Perfect for a business lunch with a menu and wine list that can add to the talking points. Would love to come here in the... More

Went here for a romantic mid-week dinner and it didn't disappoint. Lovely space, very charming and relaxing. Staff were friendly and helpful. Every course mouthwatering and gorgeous. Wonderful for seafood lovers but also had many meat options. A bit light on the vegan and vegetarian options. However the side-salad was so fresh and flavorsome that I have to go back... More

we organised a "brainstorm "event at their premisses and had lunch . Total party of 5 persons. Location was outstanding (interior and outdoor facilities ), and different from the regular meeting places. We felt at home and yet far enough from our day to day business to make it real succesfull ! Their service was friendly and outstanding (nothing they... More

In a short period I went to the restaurant "De kruidfabriek" twice, for lunch with a big group of friends and for dinner with family members. In both occasions the food was quite good and the service good. The food is somehow innovative. The portions are small, but tasteful. The restaurant has a modern decoration with some interesting solutions for... More

Located in Amstelveen, the sorrounds are less typical than other restaurants in that area, but once inside you are in an elegant but informal atmosphere. Very good service, staff competent and kind. We tasted the "chef surprise" menu, with wines in combination: very good and tasty food, original combination of high-quality ingredients very well done: fish to start (king crab... More

I have mixed feelings about our dinner. The service overall was good. Friendly and attentive staff, not intrusive and kind help with wine and food selection. The menu looks interesting with non-standard dishes. But the portions are very small. For the starter I guess it was OK, but I had "Sole Meuniere" as a main dish - it fact it... More

I went for birthday night out with my wife. The restaurant looks really nice and different. Although we had made restaurant reservations well in advance, we were sat in the lounge on a high bar table. I kindly requested a different table. The waitress flat out refused as all tables were reserved with special requests, which is fair enough. I... More

Enjoyed a very nice lunch at the Kruidfabriek (wordplay on the former gunpowder factory 'kruit' and herbs 'kruid'). Going strong at this location for over a decade. Attentive not obtrusive service, tasteful combinations and presentation.
