Highly tasty, refined and varied foods. You'll find yourself ordering 3 courses easily as all are very well portioned (as in: you need not fear huge heaps of food in one go). Service is friendly and usually adequate, tho I agree with other reviewers here...More

Dined here before a show at the Concertgebouw, so the friendly and quick service was appreciated. We didn't order a starter but got a very nice complementary salad anyway. Both dishes we tried were good, and served with ample vegetables.

De knijp offers a delicious menu of Dutch food. The "Sate of pork with Atjar" is excellent, and the service is professional and friendly.
